Paper Abstract

The paper shows the results of the research on the active dynamic thermography used for diagnostics of onychomycosis and progress of the healing process. It seems that the most essential factor affecting the development of mycosis in nails is the microcirculation in the tissue close to the nail. Active dynamic thermography may prove to be a new diagnostic method and a sufficient tool for measurements of this parameter.
