Paper Abstract

Dynamic area telethermometry (DAT) is a new approach for the use of IR imaging in medicine. DAT allows rapid, non-contact assessment of cutaneous perfusion and study of the dynamics of subcutaneous blood flow. Consequently, DAT can be a useful tool in the management of vascular and plastic surgeries, as well as in the diagnosis of neuronal disorders that affect the vasculature. DAT can also be very useful in the diagnosis and management of non-neuronal disorders, such as cancer, associated with abnormal dynamics of local perfusion. The application of DAT in the diagnosis of breast cancer is described as a model for converting a qualitative subjective imaging technique into a quantitative objective test.
