Ulcers can be classified in several ways but acute ulcers are usually painful and last less tha...

Cool eyes on fever screening: Optimizing infrared thermography
(SPIE--International Society for Optics and Photonics) A report published in the Journal of Biomedical Optics provides insights for optimizing infrared thermograph-based fever screening. Thermography using infrared thermographs (IRTs), enables increased options for temperature estimation with greater accuracy. Although the use of thermography as a stand-alone detection method for COVID-19 is unlikely to prevent spread, emerging evidence and international consensus suggest that it is indeed possible to use IRTs effectively for detecting elevated body temperatures.
