An infrared camera visually records the temperature of the skin surface. The skin temperature can indicate changes in underlying pathology.
Medical Infrared Thermography is used for body imaging and breast screening and helps to indicate early detection, establishment of risk and monitoring of abnormal physiology. This could include abnormal vascular and neurological conditions related to breast disease, pain conditions, sports injuries and many more difficult to assess symptoms. Thermography is a study of physiology and not of anatomy or structure.
Medical Infrared Thermography is 100% risk-free, non-invasive, pain free, non-contact and no radiation.
