Terahertz (THz) spectroscopic imaging technique was applied to classify the tumor region in the rabbit liver with VX2 hepatocellular carcinoma. Within the measurement range of 0.1-2 THz, the average reflectance values for all tumor samples were more than 4 higher than those for healthy cells, and the terahertz measurements correlated well with histological analysis results. This study on paraffin-embedded tissues showed the alteration of cell density and protein content in tumors, excluding the effect of water.
