Author Affiliations +
We present a review on terahertz diagnostics in dentistry. Time domain and spectral domain imaging studies are compared. Imaging built on mapping time-domain dependencies delivers the information on mechanisms of light transport in tissue: ballistic, quasi-ballistic and diffusive photon transfer. Imaging utilizing transform in frequency-domain provides a wealth of data on specific characterization of object: spectral and chemical content, tissue structure and composition and various kind of tissue abnormalities.
