Thermal Imaging of Superficial Leg Circulation Improves Venous Diagnostic Efficiency and Completeness
VASCULAR DISEASE MANAGEMENT 2020;17(11):E208-E211.
Thermal imaging (TI) has been used in the medical field for over 50 years; however, it has shown limited clinical utility partly due to prohibitive costs, size, and often its use in inappropriate disease states. In this single center retrospective analysis, the impact of thermal imaging of legs was assessed by comparing complete duplex ultrasound (DUS) diagnostic results before and after the addition of TI to the routine clinical evaluation.
Sensitivity and Specificity of Thermal Imaging When Used to Detect Superficial Venous Reflux as Compared to Duplex Ultrasound
VASCULAR DISEASE MANAGEMENT 2021;18(3):E45-E49
More than 80 million Americans suffer from chronic venous disease (CVD), which often is visually recognized as varicose veins.1 If left untreated, these abnormal leg veins can progressively worsen and cause other complications.2 Thus, optimizing non-contact, noninvasive imaging methods that can be useful in either earlier or more complete diagnosis of CVD may be beneficial.
Thermal Imaging Positioned to Become the Best Tool in the Evaluation of Superficial Venous Insufficiency

Welcome to the March 2021 edition of Vascular Disease Management. There are many articles of great interest in this month’s edition. I have chosen to comment on Dr. Ariel Soffer and colleagues’ article “Sensitivity and Specificity of Thermal Imaging When Used to Detect Superficial Venous Reflux as Compared to Duplex Ultrasound.”
