Thermography can detect joint inflammation & help improve ergonomics

Infrared thermography can help detect joint inflammation and help improving work ergonomics, according to a recent study from the University of Eastern Finland. All objects with a temperature above absolute zero emit infrared radiation as a result of the thermal motion of their molecules. Infrared thermography (IRT) is an imaging modality that can be used

Infrared Thermal Imaging Shows Inflammation

Infrared thermal imaging detected significantly higher bone segment temperatures in the distal tibia and fibula in children with chronic nonbacterial osteomyelitis compared with healthy limbs, according to a pilot study published in Arthritis Care & Research. Researchers analyzed the use of infrared thermal imaging for detecting elevated temperatures in the lower legs in this proof-of-concept
