Up to 80 %of diabetic foot ulcers could be avoided by early detection
The use of thermography for skin temperature alterations complements the early detection of inflammation and ulceration
Thermidas provides revolutionary, non-contact, non-invasive, physiological diagnostic tools utilizing thermography to identify and diagnose underlying pathology quickly and reliably at earlier stages than currently adopted methods.
Case examples: Thermal imaging of diabetic feet
PAD - Peripheral Arterial Disease
CFA-ATA bypass to the right
Left SFA in stenoses, PA prox. blocked, dist.
PA fills through collaterals, FA only open
ABI 1.0 / 0.89, TBP 100/23 mmHg, TBI 0.47 / 0.10
First image revealed a Charcot suspicion on the patient’s left foot
Second image is a diagnosed Charcot case on the right foot
ΔT max on the second image is 8°C indicating a clear abnormality
Blisters & Poor Circulation
Comparison of visual images and thermal images
Thermal images help detect and locate the problem areas
High-temperature areas showing weight stress with potential for skin breakdown
