Implantation of stem cells into damaged tissues prompts the regeneration of new tissues following stem cell differentiation. However, research regarding the effectiveness of implanted stem cells in the promising field of regenerative medicine depends on the ability to track their movement, migration, and survival once transplanted into tissues. The ability to accurately monitor the dynamics of these cells once placed into damaged tissue over time is referred to as stem cell tracking. Current research in this area focuses on ways in which investigators can safely trace the fate of these pluripotent cells once inside the body. Using imaging and labeling techniques, multiple studies have reported methods in stem cell tracking for treating different medical conditions such as brain injury, spinal cord injury, neurodegenerative diseases, ischemic ...
