Paper Abstract

The left-right thermal asymmetry of human bodies is statistically analyzed on a few selected body parts. The three statistical parameters, including signal-to-noise ratio, Z-criterion and D-criterion, are recommended to verify a grade of asymmetry in the case of pathologies. The variability of these parameters attributed to healthy persons is discussed.
