ABSTRACT
The value of thermography as a reliable, noninvasive, and rapid method of investigating patients with peripheral vascular disease is discussed. Thermography has great value in managing deep venous thrombosis, in estimating the optimal site of amputation, in evaluating vasoactive drugs, and correctly timing the division of pedicled skin flaps. Its use in localizing incompetent perforating veins of the leg and in monitoring patients with cerebrovascular disease after surgery to the carotid arteries is also briefly described.
