Purposeimaging is done by terahertz radiation.

Terahertz tomography is a class of tomography where sectional imaging is done by terahertz radiation. Because terahertz radiation can "see" what visible light and IR can not see, unique information can be obtained by terahertz tomography.[1] This is in a sense similar to X-ray except without all the hazardous effects of X-ray.[citation needed]
