ther·mo·gram

(ther'mō-gram),
1. A regional temperature map of the surface of a part of the body, obtained by an infrared sensing device; it measures radiant heat, and thus subcutaneous blood flow, if the environment is constant.
2. The record made by a thermograph.

Most of the women got "normal" readings on their thermograms, and the majority of these women remained cancer-free.
Experimental data have allowed us to represent thermograms of such a plan on 10 specimens.
Figure 9 shows the DSC thermograms of microwaved samples cured for temperature range of -50[degrees]C to 300[degrees]C at a heating rate of 20[degrees]C/min.
Applying this mask to each thermogram, the next value of temperature (in the time domain) for each pixel is predicted; if [T.sup.(m+1).sub.ij0] and [[??].sup.(m+1).sub.ij0] denote the real and the estimated next temperature for a specific pixel in Eq.
Figure 5 shows successive thermograms of the MCM from left to right--before and after switching on the load, and a thermogram is synthesized where each pixel constitutes the temperature difference of the corresponding pixels in the two images.
To generate a plasma thermogram, a blood plasma sample is "melted" producing a unique signature indicating a person's health status.
The plasma thermogram test works by analysing heat profile from a person's blood.
Called a plasma thermogram, it involves capturing an infrared profile of heat given off by a blood sample.
The recorded thermogram gives information about the phase transition, water of crystallization, and different stages of decomposition of the crystal.
