Low-density tissue scaffold imaging by synchrotron radiation propagation-based imaging computed tomography with helical acquisition mode

Journal of Synchrotron Radiation 2023 Volume 30, Pages 417-429

Visualization of low-density tissue scaffolds made from hydro­gels is important yet challenging in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine (TERM). For this, synchrotron radiation propagation-based imaging computed tomography (SR-PBI-CT) has great potential, but is limited due to the ring artifacts commonly observed in SR-PBI-CT images. To address this issue, this study focuses on the integration of SR-PBI-CT and helical acquisition mode (i.e. SR-PBI-HCT) to visualize hydro­gel scaffolds. The influence of key imaging parameters on the image quality of hydro­gel scaffolds was investigated, including the helical pitch (p), photon energy (E) and the number of acquisition projections per rotation/revolution (Np), and, on…

Toughening 3D-printed Sr–HT–Gahnite caffold through natural and synthetic polymer coating

International Journal of Applied Biomedical Engineering 2020 Volume 13, number 1, Pages 18-22

Bone scaffold for aiding bone regeneration in large bone defects should have following ideal characteristics; biocompatibility, biodegradability, bio-activity, high porous and interconnected-pore architecture, as well as, mechanical characteristics similar to the cortical bone for supporting loads. 3D printed Sr–HT (Sr–Ca2ZnSi2O7)–gahnite scaffold with hexagonal pore structure is an interesting bone scaffold meeting most of these ideal features. To explain, biocompatible, osteoinductive, and osteoconductive properties as well as unique high compressive strength are obtained from Sr–HT–gahnite, glass-ceramic, material. With hexagonal pore structure, the scaffold has compressive strength comparable to cortical bone balancing with high porosity and large pore size. Nonetheless, the scaffold…

Development of Schwann Cell-Encapsulated Alginate Scaffolds for the Repair of Peripheral Nerve Injury

CMBES Proceedings 35 2012

Nerve conduits for peripheral nerve repair have progressed from simple silicon tubes to complex engineered scaffolds. Recent advances in scaffold fabrication have enabled the incorporation of neurotrophins, extracellular matrix components and various cells into scaffolds for enhanced biologic properties. Bioplotting is one of the emerging methods, where the scaffold material, in form of a solution, is dispensed from a needle, layer by layer forming a three-dimensional structure. It enables the use of a wide range of materials, ranging from synthetic polymers (like polycaprolactone, polyglycolic acid, etc.) to naturally occurring polymers like alginate, chitosan, etc. Notably, the use of hydrogels gives…
