Boy in front of a thermal camera. This image shows both the thermal image (thermogram) and the boy. A normal visible light image and a far infrared image. The different colors on the camera represent different temperatures on the boy. The lightest colors are the hottest temperatures, while the darker colors represent a cooler temperature. Thermography uses special cameras that can detect light in the far-infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum (900?14,000 nanometers or 0.9?14 µm) and creates an image of the objects temperature. These cameras are of particular importance for medical applications where they can be used to detect skin disorders and various medical conditions including infections.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
