Paper Abstract

Infrared thermography is a useful method of recording skin temperature distributions. It can be shown that the thermal pattern of an individual is a complex function of surface topography, anatomy, blood perfusion in subcutaneous tissues, superficial vascularity and environmental temperature. A variety of physiological and pathological factors can also affect skin temperature. Three examples are illustrated: the scrotal varicocele, vascular changes associated with malignancy and the effect of large doses of ionizing radiation on the skin.
