thermography

Imaging An abandoned method for diagnosing breast CA based on an ↑ warmth of skin overlying malignancy; heat is a relatively nonspecific finding that also occurs in mastitis; the technique was abandoned due to the unacceptably high rates of false positivity and false negativity; it has no role in breast CA diagnostics. Cf Mammography, Xeroradiography.

thermography

A scanning technique in which temperature differences on the surface of the skin are represented as an image or as colour differences. Thermography readily demonstrates areas of inflammation and variations in blood supply, but has not proved particularly useful as an aid to diagnosis.
