There are two fundamental techniques for imaging ; measure the reflected
part / measure the absorbed part (reflection/transmission).  X-ray is a
transmission imaging technique thus it will both transmit and receive in
order to construct the image.

Terahertz imaging uses the third one - measure the radiated part. A human body radiates quite a lot of energy in the terahertz region, and it is this energy that proposed full body scanners at airports etc are using to detect people carrying weapons.

Reflectometry based approaches already cover the cases where the object
itself is the source of the radiation.

They may "cover the cases" but not needing a TerraHertz source sounds 'useful'.

The images that I have seen within the last year of image data that
is being used to infer eg firearms being present, were horrendously
rough and  appeared to have 'signal' nearly buried in noise.

It would be useful if they were talking about that ;

"Terahertz can also be used for imaging to detect cancer tumors, diagnosing
disease through breath analysis, and monitoring air toxicity."

Very roughly speaking ; they built an optical detector IC that has
acceptable response to the x-ray region of the spectrum. Without a
monochromatic X-ray source that is specifically built to operate in sync
with the detector IC, it is useless.

I know some of you are thinking about the blackbody radiation that is the
fundamental phenomena making thermal cameras and etc work but this is
different.
