Abstract

Infrared thermography was used for statistical analysis of the human body temperature asymmetry as the basis for detecting pathologies. Three statistical parameters,signal-to-noise ratio, Z-criterion and D-criterion, were introduced to distinguish between left and right side of human body. Women's breast, lower extremities and thorax were included in the analyzed pair organs. The thermal asymmetry for women's breast was found to be higher than for ankles and thorax.
