Abstract:
We have developed new methods to measure some essential properties of cartilage: a
photoacoustic measurement method and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy. These
can be used to evaluate the outcomes of tissue-engineered cartilage, regenerated articular
cartilage tissue after surgery, and the degenerated cartilage of osteoarthritis patients. A
nanosecond-pulsed laser, which is completely noninvasive, is focused onto the target
cartilage and induces a photoacoustic wave, which will propagate with attenuation, which
is affected by the viscoelasticity of the surrounding cartilage. The decay time during
which the amplitude of the photoacoustic wave is reduced by a factor of 1/e is the key
numerical value used to characterize and evaluate the viscoelasticity and rheological
behavior of the cartilage. In this study, we also investigated whether pulsed laser irradiation and the measurement of excited autofluorescence allow us to noninvasively
evaluate tissue characters in real time. Our findings show that time-resolved laserinduced
fluorescence spectroscopy is useful for evaluating tissue-engineered cartilage.
This measurement system, predicated on the interactions between optics and living
organs, is a suitable methodology for diagnosis during arthroscopy, because it allows the
quantitative and multidirectional evaluation of the original function of the cartilage based
on a variety of parameters.
