Until now, no study assessed the error that arises during calculation of quantitative functional lung parameters obtained from MRI. Using a bootstrapping approach with shuffling residuals the error of ventilation and perfusion (amplitude and phase) of the SENCEFUL technique was investigated in this study. Obtained error values were in an acceptable range rendering quantitative functional lung MRI a promising technique for the assessment of regional alterations in lung function.
