    Abstract

    Here we describe our efforts to improve our understanding of differences detected between normal and cancerous tissue in the THz regime. By using a model and plugging in data extracted from spectroscopy measurements we are able to calculate expected reflections from diseased and healthy tissues which help to identify sources of image contrast.
