  • Neurosensory dysfunction of the injured inferior alveolarnerve(IAN) is a common and distrssing consequence of traumatic or iatrogenic injury. Conventional neurosensory testing has been used to detect and monitor sensory impairments of the injured IAN. However, these tests had low reliability and are not qualitative at best because they are based on solely on the patient's subjective assesment of symptoms. Consequently, there is need for more reliable, sensitive, and objective test measures to document and to monitor sensory dysfunction of the trigeminal nerve. This study was to investigate DITI's (digital infrared thermographic imaging) potential as a diagnostic alternative for evaluating of the nerve injures and sensory disturbance. Subjects were 30 patients who had been referred to Ewha Medical Center due to sensory disturbance of the lower lip and chin followed after unobserved inferior alveolar nerve injuries. The patients were examined by clinical neurosensory tests as SLTD (static light touch discrimination), MDD (moving direction discrimination), PPN (pin prick nociception) and DITI (digital infrared thermographic imaging). The correlation between clinical sensory dysfunction scores(Sum of SLTD, MDD, PPN, NP, Tinel sign) and DITI were tested by Spearman nonparametric rank correlation anaylsis & Kruskal-Wallis test, Wilcoxon 2-sample test. This study resulted in as follows; (1) The difference of thermal difference between normal side and affected side was as ${\Delta}-3.2{\pm}0.13$. (2) The DITI differences of the subjects presenting dysesthesia of the lip and chin were correlated significantly with the neurosensory dysfunction scores(r=0.419, p=0.021)and SLTD (r=0.429, p<0.05). (3) The MDD, PPN, NP, Tinel sign, duration, gender were not correlated with DITI(p> 0.05). Therefore, the DITI(digital infrared thermographic imaging) can be an option of the useful objective diagnostic methods to evaluate the injured inferior alveolar nerve and sensory dysfunction of trigerminal nerve.

  • Objectives : The aim of this study is to evaluate possibility of DITI as prognosis evaluation tool of facial palsy. Methods : We investigate prognosis of facial palsy through EMR(Electronic Medical Record) of inpatient from December 2016 to June 2017. We evaluated the sex, age distribution, length of hospital stay, paralysis site, number of treatment after discharge, change of H-B Grade at entrance and exit, temperature difference of both sides of DITI, and Nerve Conduction Study(NCS) with reference to EMR recorded symptom change. Results : 1. Significant correlations were not found between DITI and House-Brackmann Grade change, NCS(%), the date of admission. 2. There was a negative correlation between NCS(%) and hospitalization period in patients with facial palsy. The higher the NCS, the faster the recovery rate of facial palsy. 3. In patients with facial palsy, the temperature difference between the two sides after the DITI image shows that the affected side tends to be lower than the normal side. Conclusions : In this study, only DITI temperature difference between both sides of face is not significant in determining the prognosis of facial palsy. Further research is needed to conduct DITI at the same time and to improve accuracy through a sufficient assessment of the degree of facial palsy.

  • This study examined the relationship between bone mineral density and DITI in the diagnosis of osteoporosis. An analysis was performed on the thermographic findings of 20 patients without osteoporosis, 20 with osteopenia and 20 with osteoporosis at the Kangnam Korean Hospital, KyungHee University, Seoul, Korea, from June 1998 to February 1999. The osteoporosis was measured by LUNAR PIXI and the body temperature was assessed by DITI. Thermogrphic measurements were performed on 4 areas(acupuncture point: CV12, CV4, BL23 and BL26). All data were coded for computer analysis and significances were tested by Duncan test. There was no significant difference in age among the three groups of patients. DITI revealed the significant hypothermia (p<0.001) on the osteoporosis patients compared with osteopenia and normal bone density patients. It is believed that DITI may be a favorable alternative to the diagnosis of osteoporosis.
