© 2018 IEEE. In our work, we have performed in vitro terahertz (THz) measurements of gelatin-embedded malignant human brain gliomas using the THz pulsed spectroscopy. The gelatin embedding yields sustain the THz response of tissues close to that of the freshly-excised ones for a long time after the resection. We have observed significant differences between the THz responses of normal and pathological tissues of the brain, which highlights a potential of the THz technology in label-free intraoperative neurodiagnosis of tumors.
