Abstract

Different ways for monitoring the dehydration of tissues affected by hyperosmotic agents have been comparatively analyzed to increase the THz transparency of biological tissues. The data obtained with an original THz laser spectrometer, a Nicolet 6700 Fourier spectrometer, and a Callegari Soft Plus system for skin diagnostics are in good agreement. The corresponding responses of biological tissues (in the form of THz transmittance, reflectance, absorption coefficient, and hydration coefficient) to the effect of biologically compatible hyperosmotic agents have been studied.
