Caption: Thermogram of a profile view of the neck & upper body of a person suffering from rheumatoid arthritis affecting the joints of the neck & shoulders. A thermogram is a colour-coded map of heat distribution across the body surface. The colour coding shows variation in temperature, ranging in steps from blue-black (coolest) to white (warmest areas). Alterations in skin temperature are characteristic of disease conditions; inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis may give rise to average increases of 2 degrees C. In this image, inflammation is widespread over the neck and upper arm.
