More findings in a new original publication

With a simple clinical setting, the study compared skin temperature changes in the feet before and after revascularization and to identify possible correlation between ankle brachial index (ABI) and toe pressure (TP) values and foot skin temperature patient with and without diabetes. The results showed a clear correlation between increase of ABI and TP and increase of the mean skin… Read more →

Excellent findings in new original publication

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… Read more →
