Penile Cutaneous Temperature In Systemic Sclerosis: A Thermal Imaging Study

2 posts in this topic

Penile cutaneous temperature in systemic sclerosis: a thermal imaging study. The results show that penile thermal abnormalities occur in almost all sclerodermic patients. Non-contact thermal imaging not only identifies thermal alterations but also clearly distinguishes between SSc patients and healthy controls and therefore could represent a valuable instrument in identifying early ED (erectile dysfunction) in SSc patients.

I presume they mean almost all MALE sclerodermic patients. I wonder if there are other more ways of using thermal imaging as a diagnostic tool?

Warm wishes,
