Recent measurements on inflammation and scar tissue have shown a negative change in contrast relative to the normal tissue, which occurs at a later time delay, allowing differentiation between the tissue subtypes. The results presented demonstrate the ability of terahertz pulse imaging (TPI) to distinguish between carcinoma and normal tissue. This technique was the first to be used to identify basal cell carcinoma macroscopically in the terahertz frequency regime.
