A new terahertz medical imaging tool could provide early detection of corneal disease

Dr Taylor and Dr Grundfest’s research focuses on developing a new imaging tool for non-contact, high resolution measurements of corneal hydration.

Recent research in medical imaging found that tools based on terahertz (THz) frequency illumination could help map the distribution and movement of water near the surface of body tissues. Dr Warren Grundfest and Dr Zachary Taylor, at The UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, are developing a new imaging tool for non-contact high-resolution measurements of corneal hydration.
