Correction of the Temperature of Biological Objects in Thermographic Methods

  • A. P. IvanovEmail author

The proposed correction allows to refine the surface temperature determined by a standard noninvasive thermographic method based on IR images for the human skin with a nonuniform in depth temperature distribution. The nonuniformity is due to the biophysical necessity of normal functioning of the organism, as well as to a possible presence of pathological processes in certain areas of the body. The measured brightness can be spectral or polychromatic. The value of the correction is analyzed depending on the size, shape, and thermal power of the source of pathology, as well as the depth of its location, thermophysical and optical characteristics of the biological environment.
