Paper Abstract

This paper presents the data examples for clinical application of the authors' original thermographic techniques named developmental thermography (DT); (1) triple aspect thermography (TAT), (2) multiple aspect thermography (MAT) and (3) panoramic thermography (PT). Appropriate examples for the advantageous application for each technique of DT are selected and the specific advantages are discussed. The greatest advantage in the clinical application of DT is the capability of simultaneous display of the thermogram over even the entire aspect of a subject, and so DT has a lot of advantages in clinical application. Error free and wide coverage in DT are especially useful for the diagnosis of cancer. DT is expected to contribute to future advance of medical thermology.
