Abstract

In this work we demonstrate the use of 60% concentration of glycerol solution as an optical clearance agent in freshly excised breast tissues. The research aims at enhancing the differentiation between cancer and collagen tissues using terahertz imaging technique. The terahertz reflection mode imaging is utilized in this work. The preliminary results demonstrated a potential contrast enhancement in the terahertz image between cancer and collagen tissues.
