Paper Abstract

The process of medical unconventional diagnosis is started by the user through a search process of appearance of some possible areas of abnormal temperatures which can be seen on a suitable monitor and the comparison of these areas with the unaffected ones. To guarantee an increased successful of this search process is necessary that the system design to take into account those displaying modalities of thermal images in order to highlight critical areas. These areas are all the more so full of information as: calibration of the system is more strictly achieved; image is rather well-defined, both geometrical and thermal (through depth and colour conversions). The present paper is made up as a contribution to the existing methodologies in calibration process of such a system. The authors leave from the reason that the existence of a set of calibration filters can contribute with sufficient data which can compensate the inherent errors cam e out by the use of a blackbody source at different temperatures necessry to calibration. Starting from the reasons mentioned above can be demonstrated that is sufficient to have a source constant temperature for the assurance of a strictly calibration.
