The introduction of a new procedure will offer breast cancer patients an alternative to having a mastectomy or lumpectomy, which do not always detect whether cancerous tissue has been removed. Terahertz pulsed imaging (TPI) enables doctors to scan breast tissue and accurately detect where all cancer tissue is located and if it has been completely removed.
The TPI laser imager has the potential to reduce the number of necessary procedures and facilitate earlier and more accurate diagnosis. While 85 percent of all cancers originate in the epithelium (one of the four primary tissues on the human body), TPI can penetrate this layer where current procedures can not.
TPI also enables 3-D imaging of structures and materials, and the measurement of the unique spectral fingerprints of different chemical and physical forms. TPI is safe to the human body, is non-ionizing, less hazardous to use than X-rays and the power levels are generally lower than background terahertz radiation encountered in everyday life.
