Paper Abstract

The paper describes the results of twenty-years of experience in applying thermography (thermal imaging) in routine and urgent neurology, based on the study of more than ten thousand patients. Stress is laid on the fact that thermography is of great significance for diagnosing dextrocerebral hemorrhagic insult with a manifestation of pronounced hemihypothermia in the paralyzed limbs, identifying paraorbital hyperthermia on the side of rhinogenous cerebral abscess, for instrumental registration of transitory heat-up of the nasolabial region in the case of patients suffering from hypertensive nasal bleeding. Much attention is given to diagnosis of intra- and extracerebral phlebopathy in urgent neurology -- early diagnosis of iatrogenic catheterization phlebitis, interference with the venous return in the paralyzed lower limb. The novelty here is the employment of telethermography for complex diagnosis of cerebral death.
