Thermogram of a baby drinking. Thermograms record the heat that is given off by an object as infrared radiation. The colours represent different temperatures, from the cold drink (18 degrees Celsius, black) to the hotter forehead (34 degrees Celsius, yellow). Thermography can be used as a diagnostic technique to detect circulatory dysfunctions and tumours.
