Infrared thermography is the technique of using non-contact scanning equipment that detects invisible infrared radiation (heat) and converts this energy to visible light. To record the real-time images produced by these infrared scanners, we use conventional silver-halide films with conventional cameras to produce hard-copy photographs, or thermograms (a picture of heat). This paper presents the equipment, films, cameras and procedures needed to produce thermograms. We deal exclusively with two infrared thermal imaging viewers, the AGA Thermovision110 and the Hughes Probeyel which present their images through a monocular eyepiece. But much of the information presented can be applied to recording the images of other infrared scanners.
