Medical applications of Terahertz Imaging: a Review of Current Technology and Potential Applications in Biomedical Engineering.
In: 26th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2004, San Francisco, California, USA.
Terahertz (THz) imaging is in its early stages
of development but already the potential clinical impact of this
new imaging modality is clear. From cancer research to DNA
analysis THz technology is improving or even making possible
imaging of hitherto inaccessible phenomena. In this paper we
present a short review of THz imaging from the point of view
of biomedical engineering. We discuss the current state of the
art in terms of THz imaging systems; describe current
applications, future potential and our own approaches to
harnessing this novel technology. We draw attention to open
problems in the area with respect to the limitations of the
technology before concluding with descriptions of our future
work in the area.
