Abstract
The history and optimal fields of application of diverse modalities of infrared diagnostic media are briefly outlined, differences in the representation in the thermogram of vascular, muscular, and connective tissue are described. Image changes possibly due to excessive vibratory work stress are compared with normal findings. Illustrative examples deal with vibrating electric scissors, and other mechanical implements. It is shown how thermography makes it possible to identify, on the basis of known morphological facts, specific anatomical structures under stress. Examples of remedial actions through engineering controls are mentioned.
