Abstract

Tendons are highly orientated (anisotropic) fibrous structures adapted for a high load bearing mechanical function. As a tissue engineered tendon construct matures in vitro, it is vital to be able to non-invasively monitor its structural development. Elastic Scattering Spectroscopy (ESS) is a novel, low cost, noninvasive technique which delivers white light through an optical fibre to the surface of a material. The pattern of absorption and back scattering of light detected gives real time, quantitative information of structure allowing in situ monitoring. However, interpretation depends on understanding responses in normal tendon.
