Title
Dynamic infrared thermography for DIEP flap breast reconstruction : initial processing results
Author
Abstract
In order to identify the exact location of the useful perforator for DIEP flap breast reconstruction, infrared images can be used. The thermal images will also help to determine which parts of the flap can be safely used for the DIEP flap reconstruction. By means of infrared thermography a blood vessel distribution of the abdominal wall will be visualized. The subjective interpretation of IR images is crucial as the results can generate additional information concerning the hemodynamic properties of the flap. One specific case will be used to explain the state-of-the-art post-processing methods.
