|Description||Contactless infrared thermography (IRT) is undoubtedly a suitable imaging modality in the hands of a physician. There are several ways to evaluate IRT images - manually, fully automated or a mix between the two. In all cases, the defining regions of interest (ROI) will play a key role. The objective of the study is to determine the variability of IRT image evaluation depending on the subjective selection of the ROI position by different evaluators with no to little ex- perience in the analysis of thermal images. The study estab- lishes to what extent operators are able to be consistent in their analysis|
