Minimally invasive, longitudinal monitoring of biomaterial-associated inflammation by fluorescence imaging.

Abstract

Implant-associated inflammation is a major cause for the reduced performance/lifetime and failure of numerous medical devices. Therefore, the ability to non-invasively and quantitatively monitor implant-associated inflammation is critically important. Here we show that implant-associated inflammation can be imaged via fluorescence imaging using near… (More)
