Infrared thermography to diagnose and manage venomous animal bites and stings.

Abstract Infrared imaging (IR) is a noninvasive technique that quantifies body surface temperature, producing a digital color image. IR has been used to study diseases in which skin temperature can reflect the presence of inflammation.

AB  - INTRODUCTION: Infrared imaging (IR) is a noninvasive technique that quantifies
      body surface temperature, producing a digital color image. IR has been used to
      study diseases in which skin temperature can reflect the presence of
      inflammation. METHODS: This was an observational pilot study of eight patients
      envenomed by snakes, spiders, and scorpions. All patients were examined using a
      thermal camera. RESULTS: In all cases, we obtained infrared images that
      corroborated clinical findings indicating localized effects of venom,
      specifically inflammation. CONCLUSIONS: IR has potential for use as a research,
      diagnostic, and monitoring tool for localized effects of animal venoms.
