NON-DESTRUCTIVE TESTING THEORETICAL STUDY ON SKIN TUMOR DETECTION USING LONG-PULSED INFRARED THERMAL WAVE TESTING TECHNOLOGY

ABSTRACT
Skin cancer is one of the dangerous form of cancer spreading vigorously among humans, so its early detection is very important for further treatment. Theoretical study on skin tumor detection using long-pulsed infrared thermal wave testing technology (LP-ITWTT) has been carried out. The working principle of LP-ITWTT was described. The 3-D thermal model for skin tumor using LP-ITWTT was established and calculated. The effect of tumor geometry size including radius, depth and thickness to the measurement parameter Cmax is studied, and the influence law has been got, which can provide a theoretical basis for the diagnosis of skin tumors using LP-ITWTT.
