Medical IR thermography

Medical IR thermography

In the Institute of Electronics, the research and implementation of new methods and systems of infrared (IR) medical thermography are being developed for diagnosis and screening. The research is focused on new processing methods of IR images, in particular for dynamic active thermography. The new tools, systems and software mainly for medical screening, with application of thermal stress are the results of the scientific works. Thermal modelling based on inverse heat transfer problem solution of multilayer tissue structures for cancer and lesion screening is an important area of research. It concerns perfusion, anisotropy, modelling of thin and porous materials and non-Fourier heat transfer using Dual-Phase Lag approach. The new algorithm of advanced image processing using frequency analysis of long thermal image sequences were developed to achieve parametric images presenting e.g. perfusion.
