Abstract

Compared with X ray, THz has a very strong complementary characteristic, its photon energy is extremely low, and has no ionization property as that of x ray, therefore, its testing effect is more accurate. The unmarked working method of genetic analysis in biochip technology has already been realized. As THz radiation is sensitive to water molecules, by testing water content through the THz test of the calf thymus, the healthy tissue and sick tissue can be distinguished. Therefore, THz imaging has a very vast medical applying prospect.
