Comprehensive Mote-Carlo Simulator for Optimization of Imaging Parameters for High Sensitivity Detection of Skin Cancer at the THz Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • ABSTRACT Skin cancer detection at its early stages has been the focus of a large number of experimental and theoretical studies during the past decades. Among these studies two prominent approaches presenting high potential are reflectometric sensing at the THz wavelengths region and polarimetric imaging techniques in the visible wavelengths. While THz radiation contrast agent and source of sensitivity to cancer related tissue alterations was considered to be mainly the elevated water content in the cancerous tissue, the …
