Infrared-thermography is a new diagnostic method of clinical medicine. Its importance especially pertains to diagnosis, observation of clinical course, and control of therapy. During the infrared thermographic procedure the emission of heat originating from the body surface is recorded by a detector. An electronic system converts the radiation picture into a television picture which is used for measurement. The exact determination of temperature is performed by isotherms. Thus it is possible to obtain an exact cartography of the thermoprofile rapidly and easily, and to measure differences of temperature of the body surface and superficial blood vessels. The value of the method is demonstrated in a case of arterial embolism of the right arm successfully treated by thrombolysis.
