Degradable, bioceramic bone implants made of calcium polyphosphate (CPP) hold potential for controlled release of therapeutic agents in the treatment of localized bone disease. MRI techniques for non-invasively mapping fluid distribution, T(1) and T(2) relaxation times, and the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) were performed in conjunction with a drug elution protocol to resolve free and bound water components within the material microstructure in two CPP formulations (G1 and G2). The T(2) maps provided the most accurate estimates of free and bound water, and showed that G1 disks contained a detectable free water component at all times, with drug release dominated by a Fickian diffusion mechanism. Drug release from G2 disks was characterized by a combined diffusional/structural relaxation mechanism, which may be related to the gradual infiltration of a free water component associated with swelling and/or chemical degradation.
