Thermal imaging can be used to assist with diagnoses of medical conditions. This has been used for humans as well as animal patients as the blood flow carries heat to the surface of the skin and this heat is captured by the camera.

In veterinary practice, a thermal camera can show areas were there is less than expected blood flow, or increased blood flow, a the blood carries the body heat to the surface of the skin.

Thermal cameras are now widely used as an aid to diagnosis by veterinary practitioners around the country. They have been used to count the numbers of deer on the land from a helicopter as the heat from the animals stands out clearly against the colder background.
