NMR imaging techniques were used to identify the location and follow the proliferation of cells within a construct as well as identify structural defects. The development of a non-invasive imaging technique that monitor the viability and function of encapsulate cells of a bioartificial pancreas. 1H NMR imaging and spectroscopy was used to monitor alginate encapsultaed βTC3 cells in vitro and in vivo conditions. The results show that NMR imaging and spectroscopy are use to monitor biochemical and structural information for tissue engineered constructs, both in vivo and in vitro conditions.
