Computer-Aided Tomographic Thermography
The use of thermography as a medical diagnostic tool has been described in Chap. 25. In contrast to x-ray and ultrasound-imaging techniques, which detect structural differences, thermography is sensitive to functional parameters, such as circulation and metabolic rate, thus providing information not obtainable with other methods.
