Australian govt gives patent thermal imaging system to Aurangabad researchers

Aurangabad, Maharashtra, Jul 3 (UNI)The government of Australia had granted innovation patent to five city based researchers for inventing a low cost innovative thermal imaging system that is useful for biomedical applications. This device is ready to be used for medical purpose where contact less, non-invasive and painless diagnostic support is required for studying underlying health conditions in humans.
The patented system is known as “A Non-Contact Type Thermal Imaging System”. This System has been designed and developed for the purpose of diagnostic support leading towards disease detection.
This patented system is a result of three years of rigorous collaborative efforts of five researchers from three prestigious institutions of the city - Dr. Abdul Raoof Khan and Dr. Nazneen Akhter from Maulana Azad College and Dr Shazia Shaikh and Dr. Ramesh Manza from Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University and Dr. Kranti Zakde from Jawaharlal Nehru Engineering College .
The invasive diagnostic methods like biopsies can be painful and cause discomfort to the patients.
This device can be used for medical applications where contact less, non-invasive and painless diagnostic support is required for studying underlying health conditions in humans that are marked by changes in body surface temperatures and it can play a significant role in early detection of disease stages such as diabetes, breast cancer, skin cancer, oral cancers, etc.
This thermal imaging system may help in reducing the frequencies of such invasive diagnoses by helping in giving indications regarding the lower or higher than normal temperatures of the patient’s body parts under suspicion.
Cancerous tumors having higher metabolic activity is marked by increase in the tumor’s temperature and thus this thermal imaging system can play a vital role in assessment and early identification of such abnormal masses that be indicative of early phase of malignancy.
The system can also detect diabetic neuropathy, peripheral vascular disorders, thyroid gland abnormalities, etc. One of the key benefits of this patented thermal imaging device its cost effectiveness.
It is a compact device, light-weight and low cost alternative to the exorbitantly costing existing technologies that are priced in the ranges from more than half a lakh to several lakhs. Comparatively, this patented system is affordable for research groups or clinicians.
