Descriptive Information
Brief Title Diagnosis of Acute Appendicitis, Ovary Torsion and Inflammation, and Testicular Torsion and Inflammation by Infrared Thermography
Official Title Not Provided
Brief Summary Thermal, or infrared, energy is the part of electromagnetic radiation that an observer perceives as heat. Infrared thermography allows us to visualize temperature distribution of the human body and has been used in medical practice since the 1950s. In current study we would like to examine the ability of infrared thermography to detect acute appendicitis, ovary torsion and inflammation, and testicular torsion and inflammation.
