Abstract
Generating images of layered tissue structures can give valuable information to clinicians. However, the provision of accurate imaging of certain tissue structures, like teeth, in 3-dimensions is still a difficult problem. We present a method that relies on the use of pulsed Terahertz radiation to gain 3-dimensional information from teeth samples. The method makes use of Terahertz Pulse Imaging (TPI) to provide depth information. Example images are shown where structures in teeth at depth are rendered. We discuss issues that arise using this imaging method and propose ways in which it could be used in clinical practice.
