Squamous Cell Carcinoma
This thermography case study shows a squamous cell carcinoma that was caused by radiation therapy from a contralateral lymphoma. Notice the areas of heat surrounding the center. On thermography, areas of excessive heat (red and white) could be indicative of angiogenesis. Angiogenesis is the formation of new blood vessels which results in increased blood flow to the area, supplying tumors and cancer cells with the nutrients they need for growth and reproduction.
