Significant advancements in biodegradable polymeric materials have been made for numerous applications including tissue engineering, regenerative medicine and drug delivery. The functions of these polymers within each application often rely on controllable polymer degradation and erosion, yet the process has proven difficult to measure in vivo. Traditional methods for investigating polymer erosion and degradation are destructive, hampering accurate longitudinal measurement of the samples in the same subject. To overcome this limitation we have explored the use of ultrasound elastography imaging

Applications of synthetic materials in medicine date back over 4000 year2. The Egyptians used linen as sutures. In the Roman Empire, gold was used in dentistry. Perhaps even earlier, ivory and bone may have been used in the body by practitioners of the healing arts. The historical origins of modem biomaterials science are also hard to precisely trace, but many of the ideas that define biomaterials as we know them today evolved in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
