Animal handling should also be considered to avoid artifacts in the examination, such as clipping the hair 60min before the air conditioning starts, avoiding touching the sites that will be thermographically imaged, and using latex gloves (INFERNUSO et al.
The first demonstrated that thermographically produced "temperature maps" varied in a predictable way in a range of different diseases and this led to a comprehensive set of methodologies for clinical diagnosis and treatment assessment.
After the removal of the heating element, the temperatures on the plates were each determined thermographically (Thermocamera NEC G 120) at two places (initial run and field).
