Mucopolysaccharide staining

Perhaps this isn't the most appropriate newsgroup to post this to, but
here goes anyway. I'm looking for information on biocompatible dyes which
can be used to stain/visualise exposed mucopolysaccharide in damaged
cartilage. It would be especially useful if such a dye could be used as a
contrast agent in computed tomography to visualise mechanical damage to
cartilage in vivo following injection. Can anyone help?
