Monitor screen of the high-definition thermal imaging camera used in a study at Leicester University, UK, showing a hospital patient (simulated by model) who is using a sensor for breath sample analysis. The thermal imaging camera will give information on blood flow and body temperature distribution. It is hoped to integrate a number of advanced diagnostic methods including mass spectrometry, thermal imaging and ultrasound blood flow measurement. Using expertise from chemical and space research scientists to compliment medical practice it is hoped that a rapid, portable and non-invasive diagnostic instrument will be developed to detect disease.
