Medical infrared (IR) Imaging, sometimes known as Thermography, offers interesting diagnostics for many diseases, bruises and other surface injuries. It is a technique that can image the temperature distribution, blood flow and other irregularities resulting from various disease related abnormalities. This technique is becoming increasingly popular because of its non-invasive approach.
Medical infrared thermography provides a non-invasive and painless diagnostic tool for determination and analysis of human physiological functions related to the phenomenology of skin or outer morphological temperature distribution. The technological advances of infrared imaging, image processing and image rendition have opened up a new modality for medical application. This rapidly developing infrared technology is now being used to detect and locate thermal abnormalities at the skin surface typically caused by some form of disease. The technique typically used is to detect the infrared radiation that is related to the temperature distribution with a set of anomalies or diseases.
Magnolia is developing highly sensitive infrared focal plane arrays and tools to assist doctors with unprecedented resolution and sensitivity for accurate diagnostics procedures.
Example of infrared imaging of legs demonstrating irregularities in the blood flow. Applying innovative image processing with medical data help doctor's understand the blockage and other anomalies to apply appropriate theraphy.
