thermal image of patient

Bath’s Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases has updated its thermal imaging camera to enable better evaluation of patients who may have Raynaud’s disease or chronic pain conditions. Raynaud’s disease can be a cause of cold or numb fingers, whilst in chronic pain the affected limb can become cold.

The new thermal imaging camera, which displays heat as a visual image, is from Focus 2000 Infrared Ltd's Thermal Vision Research team. A research grant from the Raynaud’s and Scleroderma Association enabled the purchase of this camera which will be used extensively for research and clinical assessment. Whilst the hospital’s previous thermal imaging camera functioned only over limited temperature range and took single images, the new camera and software system can record and display sequences of thermal images over a wider temperature range with improved precision.
