IR imaging for detecting medical applications

The project is about high-resolution infrared imaging employing infrared sensor technology and Real-Time Image Processing techniques. The innovation is focused specifically on imaging for medical purposes.

One of the challenges with infrared sensors is the amount of electromagnetic interference that occurs when they are used to drive a normal display, such as a laptop display. Lines across the screen, like what one may see on analogue television in a bad reception area, are a common result.

As a result, an infrared camera system that is not susceptible to electromagnetic interference is required, so that EMI interference does not appear on the display screen when coupled to a CPU, such as in a laptop.

In addition, infrared equipment used in medical laboratories is usually bulky and hefty, making transportation difficult. As a result, there is a desire for a medical infrared system that can be carried in a bag, opened, and used in an off-campus treatment facility.

Additionally, the output of a single channel infrared sensor must be processed to sharpen the image displayed on-screen and achieve high image resolution.

As a result, the sector has an unmet requirement to solve the shortcomings and inadequacies, especially or surface sensing medical applications such as:

  • Pressed median nerves
  • The temporomandibular joint disorder
  • Imaging of subsurface anatomical structures for dermal applications
  • Topological fungal and bacterial infections on the body
  • Hydration detection system
  • Types of burns etc.
  • Plastic surgery
