We used a combination of solid-state NMR spectroscopy and MRI to evaluate the formation of extracellular matrix in poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolide) bone implants. In addition to the images, we used magic angle spinning NMR to analyse the collagen (by 13C NMR) and apatite (by 31P NMR) formed in the implants. This analysis provides useful information on the composition and structure of the extracellular matrix, and serves as a tool for the evaluation of the quality of tissue engineering.
