PURPOSE Early detection of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is critical to prevent clinical pulmonary thromboembolism. However, most conventional methods for diagnosing DVT are functionally limited and complicated. The aim of this study was to evaluate the value of infrared-thermal-imaging (IRTI), a novel imaging detection or screening technique, in diagnosis of DVT in animal models. METHODS DVT model of femoral veins was established in nine New Zealand rabbits. The right hind femoral vein was… CONTINUE READING
