Thermal imaging and its potential for arterio-venous fistula function assessment

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Three contrasting case examples are provided in this report to show the potential of thermography for assessing arterio-venous fistula (AVF) function in renal patients, giving information about upper limb fistula patency and also evidence for vascular steal from the hands. The relationships with comparator colour duplex blood flow and fistula patency assessments are also considered.
