Abstract

The surgery is a branch of medicine, that is integrally connected to wounds. Despite using sterile tools and compliance with aseptic rolls, some of the surgery wounds become infected. In clinical practice there is a lack of cheap, objective methods and tools for quantitative definition and estimation of the surgery wound healing progress. This paper presents preliminary results of Active Dynamic Thermography (ADT) parametric imaging of sternum surgery wounds. The study was performed in the Clinics of Cardio Surgery at the Medical University of Gdańsk. The results are presented in the form of the simplified exponential parameters approximation of examined objects’ thermal response: dT norm and t 90_10 images.
