Forensic Investigations Using Thermography and Steam

How Applying Steam to Blood-Stained Cloth Made Thermal Imaging Possible

Researchers looking for an alternative method of detecting the presence of dilute concentrations of blood on fabric have found a solution in thermal imaging. While blood is not visible on its own in the infrared spectrum, they discovered it was possible to create a thermal signature by introducing water vapor to a bloodstained sample. Despite some challenges with natural fibers, this thermal imaging method may be a preferable alternative to the use of luminol in forensic investigations.

Mobile Infrared Scanning — A High-Tech, Accurate Alternative to Traditional Bridge Inspection Methods

Traditional methods for finding concrete delamination and spalling on bridges can be subjective, inaccurate, and at times, dangerous. The solution may be a new mobile unit that uses a cooled FLIR camera to produce objective bridge deck scans — without the need to close down traffic lanes, causing congestion and raising the risk for accidents.

Thermal Imaging Helps in Evaluating Dental Drilling

Preparing a damaged tooth and crown for replacement requires drilling that, in some cases, raises the temperature of the bone and surrounding tissues to dangerous levels. Excessive heat can permanently damage these tissues as they increase the denaturation of hard tissue proteins.
