THERMOGRAPHY: DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES AND APPLICATIONS IN ENGINEERING, DENTAL MEDICINE AND FINE ARTS.

ABSTRACT

This work presents the potential of thermography in three different areas: engineering, dental
medicine and painting. It is intended to show the extent of use of this tool by highlighting
three different universes in which thermography can be used. The first approach shows how
the technology is built and its functions, the second describes how it can be applied, and the
third explores how it can be interpreted.

Keywords: thermography, engineering, dental medicine, artistic creation, painting.
