Thermal Imaging Clip of the Week: Medical Infrared Imaging of Athletes

\"athletes\"

Thermal Imaging cameras are very useful in the world of sports medicine. It is a safe, noninvasive diagnostic technique that allows the visualization of changes in skin surface temperature. An infrared thermal imager is used to convert infrared emissions from the skin surface into electrical impulses that are represented in color on a monitor. This infrared image graphically maps the body temperature, so subtle abnormal temperatures in vascular, muscular, neural and skeletal systems can be easily identified in comparison to natural observation.

Thermal imaging cameras aid athletes in many ways by providing:

  • early detection of disease and pathology
  • visuals of sensory-nerve or soft-tissue injury
  • status of previous diagnosed injuries or conditions
  • identification of abnormal areas for further testing
  • progress of healing and rehabilitation exercises

Overall, thermal imaging is great for early detection and diagnosis of possible health complications that athletes face during and after play. Allowing them to attain the proper treatment for a faster recovery to get back in the game.

And as March madness heats up, we would like to share with you a clip of basketball players in infrared. It\’s interesting to see how the glossy floor reflects their heat profile as if they were playing on a mirror court.
