Basically I have a LINQ query (below) that downloads some XML data and then displays that data in a listbox. (listBox1)

XElement xmlScan = XElement.Parse(e.Result);
                  listBox1.ItemsSource = from channel in xmlScan.Descendants("item")
                                         select new ScanItem
                                             title = channel.Element("title").Value,
                                             description = strip2(strip(channel.Element("description").Value)),

Then when an item is selected I want to take the title field text from the selected item and use this to navigate to a page with the text attached. I have tried this:
private void ListBox1_SelectionChanged(object sender, SelectionChangedEventArgs e)
           NavigationService.Navigate(new Uri("/DetailsPage.xaml?selectedItem=" + MainListBox.SelectedIndex, UriKind.Relative));

However all it does is navigate to DetailsPage and then the item number that was selected no the title field.

Any help is much appreaciated.

You haven't exactly specified how ScanItem looks but I think you want to do something like this:
NavigationService.Navigate(new Uri("/DetailsPage.xaml?selectedItem=" +
   ((ScanItem)MainListBox.SelectedItem).title, UriKind.Relative));
