Repair and regeneration of articular cartilage remains a clinical and scientific challenge. Reliable assessment tools for evaluating outcomes of cartilage repair are critical for both refinement of existing methods and development of new techniques. Histological analysis of biopsies is the gold standard for repair assessment; however, biopsies are invasive procedures and therefore limited in clinical evaluation and studies of the cartilage repair. The common medical imaging methods, such as x-ray radiography, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and ultrasound, can perform imaging non-destructively; however, their spatial resolutions are not sufficient to reveal the complex cell and matrix architecture of articular cartilage.
To solve this problem, Pryfiber is developing a hybrid solution endomicroscopy system for assessment of cartilage repair in vivo.
