"Thermology in Medicine:
Clinical Thermometry and Thermal Imaging"

4th - 7th July 2018

National Physical Laboratory, Teddington, London
United Kingdom







European Association of Thermology
Short Course on Medical Thermography

Wednesday 4th July 2018, National Physical Laboratory, Teddington, UK

Following on from successful courses in Porto and Madrid, the next EAT Short Course on Medical Thermography will take place immediately prior to the EAT 2018 Congress at the National Physical Laboratory. The course aims to deliver a thorough introduction over one full teaching day to basic thermal physiology and the principles of infrared thermography for human body surface temperature measurement. It will be taught by an experienced faculty of EAT clinicians, biomedical researchers and imaging scientists, along with metrology experts from NPL. Aspects of reliable thermogram capture will be demonstrated in a laboratory session, and students will have the opportunity to practice thermal image analysis in a supervised "hands-on" session.
