Abstract

A team of researchers from France reports a new method for thermographically imaging individual cells. The imaging technique uses thermography camera technology—also used in night-vision goggles—and brings it down to the micrometer scale to record thermal activity in cells grown on a thin titanium sheet. The researchers say thermal signatures of cells could be useful in cancer diagnostics and would complement data collected using standard histological methods.
