Paper Abstract

Infrared thermography has become a way to monitor thermal abnormalities present in number of diseases and physical injuries. It is used as an aid to diagnosis, prognosis and therapy. Results obtained using the last generation of equipment (computer assisted thermographic systems, detectors without liquid nitrogen cooling system) and new techniques as dynamic thermography with independent source of driving radiation shows that it is a reliable tool for medical assessment and diagnosis. Most important--the Infrared Thermography is a non-invasive measurement technique, with non-stress for patients. This paper describes Intraoperative Thermoangiography during coronary bypass surgery.
