“Thermal Imaging to Evaluate Skin Toxicity From Radiotherapy”
A significant proportion of patients treated with whole-breast or head and neck radiotherapy will experience skin toxicity, i.e. skin dermatitis, which may lead to erythema, dry desquamation and wet desquamation. It is hypothesized that quantitative thermal imaging can be used to measure radiation-induced skin toxicity.
Diagnostic Test - Thermography
Thermograms will be acquired of both treated and non-treated cancer site for comparison.
