The Lüscher scattering formalism, the standard approach for relating the discrete finite-volume energy spectrum to two-to-two scattering amplitudes, fails when analytically continued so far below the infinite-volume two-particle threshold that one encounters the t-channel cut. This is relevant, especially in baryon-baryon scattering applications, as finite-volume energies can be observed in this below-threshold regime, and it is not clear how to make use of them. In this talk we present a generalisation of the scattering formalism that resolves this issue, allowing one to also constrain scattering amplitudes on the t-channel cut.
