Caption: Varicose veins. Thermogram of the back view of the calves of a person's legs, showing severe varicose veins at left (extensive orange/yellow areas). Varicose veins are lengthened, tortuous and often prominent structures under the skin with the legs most commonly affected. A thermogram is a colour- coded map of heat distribution over the body surface. From the scale at top, blue-green areas are coolest, orange-yellow areas are hottest. Here the areas around the varicose veins appear much hotter than the more normal appearance of the leg at right. A pink reference disc (top right) is calibrated at 30 degrees Celsius, and the colour coding represents increments of 1 degree Celsius.
