Caption: Thermogram of a head. Thermography is an imaging technique for mapping the heat distribution over the surface of a body. Here, the colour-coded image shows temperature variation in 0.1 degree celsius steps (see scale at left), where black corresponds to the colder areas and yellow corresponds to the hotter areas. Thermography has proved useful in manufacturing and medicine (where it may reveal disorders such as tumours and arthritis). It was developed by the military in the 1970's and 1980's to assist night vision; the solid state sensors used in the thermograph can detect infra-red radiation even in darkness and/or smoke.
