Quality Control in Infrared Thermography

  • E. F. J. Ring


The image produced by infrared (IR) thermography is used in a number of different forms. Direct viewing of the monochrome video screen is sometimes sufficient, and is described as thermoscopy. More often the image is processed in some way, with single isotherms, multiple color isotherms or digitization through a computer. Photographic or magnetic storage are frequently used.
