Sheffield-GE Lung MRI Protocol

Together with GE Healthcare, we have put together a bespoke protocol for lung MRI; covering both structural 1H imaging and functional imaging with hyperpolarised 129Xe.

This protocol is hosted on the POLARIS Github pages, and comprises:

  • Typical sequence parameters
  • Example images obtained from each type of scan
  • Recommended protocols for different lung disease subtypes

We provide support on the implementation of these protocols / sequences on GE Healthcare scanners.
