Fan, B., Neel, V. A., & Yaroslavsky, A. N. (2017). Multimodal imaging for nonmelanoma skin cancer margin delineation. Lasers in surgery and medicine49(3), 319-326.

Nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC) is the most common form of cancer worldwide. The most effective form of treating this cancer is its surgical removal. As NMSC rarely metastasize, its complete excision is often curative. We investigated the potential of combining Terahertz Pulsed Imaging (TPI) with polarization enhanced reflectance optical imaging for the accurate intraoperative delineation of NMSC.
