Thermovision analysis of the surface of the lower limbs in patients with symptomatic lumbosacral discopathy before and after surgery
Comparative analyzes of temperatures on the lower limb with pain with the temperatures with the lower healthy limb in the same patient indicate significant statistical differences in temperature distribution.
Detection of breast cancer tumours based on feature reduction and classification of thermograms
It is observed that the analysis of the texture features of the breast thermograms helps in providing the right information for diagnosis to a greater extent in patients having malignant breast tumours.
Deep learning based thermal image segmentation for laboratory animals tracking
An efficiency analysis of deep learning based image segmentation algorithms for the need of laboratory rats images and results indicate, that networks trained on images containing a narrow range of temperature data equal to animals’ body temperature or even its part, are able to better perform the object segmentation than networkstrained on the original data.
Sub-pixel matching method for low-resolution thermal stereo images


Application of passive infrared thermography for DIEP flap breast reconstruction
The aim of this research is to check and visualize the blood flow in the flap by means of infrared thermography to pinpoint the usefulness of IR thermography as an alternative for perforator mapping.
Active dynamic thermography method for TRAM flap blood perfusion mapping in breast reconstruction
The new method of the transverse rectus abdominis musculocutaneous flap blood perfusion mapping based on the active dynamic thermography is presented, showing that this is potentially an objective and effective method of skin flap perfusion assessment that can be performed in the operating room.
Preoperative computed tomography angiography for planning DIEP flap breast reconstruction reduces operative time and overall complications.
The study has demonstrated both a benefit to flap harvest time as well as overall operative times when using preoperative CTA, and was associated with a significant reduction in complications requiring a return to theatre in the immediate postoperative period.

This study has attempted to increase the interpretation of breast thermography by using thermal recovery and sequential and subtraction thermography, hoping that even small tumors with negative steady-state thermography may appear in dynamic thermography.
Active dynamic thermography in cardiosurgery
Development and analysis of applicability of new tools for continuous inspection of open-heart cardio-surgical interventions, suitable in clinical environment and preliminary results of in-vivo experiments with the use of IR thermal camera and newly developed procedures of active dynamic thermography are discussed.
Thermal Parametric Imaging in the Evaluation of Skin Burn Depth
The results indicate that it is possible to distinguish objectively and quantitatively burns which will heal spontaneously within three weeks of infliction and which should be treated conservatively from those which need surgery because they will not heal within this period.
