Until recently, the application of infrared imaging to medicine has been limited by low-precision temperature measurement, low spatial resolution, a narrow field of view and the lack of image-processing ability. These shortcomings have been overcome and now modern cameras have the ability to accumulate many sequential images, thus permitting the study of dynamic phenomena. In this article we present several examples of soft-tissue injury and breast cancer detection where the use of appropriate image-processing algorithms substantially enhanced the diagnostic acumen of infrared imaging
