Infrared thermography revealed local temperature differences in high-risk diabetic feet. Normal skin surface temperature varies between individuals, but in combination with other tools, IRT might be useful in clinical screening.
Diabetes mellitus (DM) and related foot complications constitute a growing healthcare burden. DM is associated with lower-limb amputation, but diabetic foot assessment is challenging. The study evaluated a novel noninvasive diagnostic method—infrared thermography (IRT) —assessing its diagnostic potential compared to conventional noninvasive measurements.
