Infrared light from affected areas and its registracion in maxillofacial pathologies

January 15, 2020

Increasing information in diagnosis and dynamic monitoring of the treatment of patients with maxillofacial pathologies can be achieved by using remote infrared thermography in combination with other diagnostic methods. The survey procedure of patients with auricolotemporal syndrome, which is devoid of the disadvantages of food irritation and Minor tests, was developed based on the thermographic diagnostics the technique of examination. The introduction of modern methods of processing thermograms and software allows to increase the level of diagnostic capabilities and to simplify the work of the doctor — thermographer.
