Abstract: Thermal imaging, also commonly referred as thermography, is a visualizing method exhibiting a great potential for dermatological applications. This is because many cutaneous pathologies affect the thermal properties of the different skin layers, as well as the heat transfer processes taking place between them. To ensure the greatest benefit, potential users should be familiar with the basic notions concerning thermal imaging and be aware of the limitations of the technique. This chapter reviews the key concepts of thermal imaging, starting with the skin thermal signals and the different imaging devices used to capture the thermal radiation, to the latest active and passive measurement procedures and demodulation algorithms that can be employed. To illustrate the potential of thermal imaging, pioneer work as well as recent studies devoted to skin cancer diagnostic and burns depth evaluation are presented. Other promising applications are briefly highlighted in the last paragraph.
