Biomedical applications: Dentistry
||Comparison of teeth using infrared, visible and ultraviolet photography. Infrared generally showed the enamel darker than the dentine and showed the whiteness of the incisal edges clearly.
||DeMent & Culbertson 1951
||Claimed that infrared photography was especially valuable for demonstrating the submucous venous pattern of the mouth.
||Friedman et al. 1958
||First application of colour infrared photography to the oral mucosa. Concluded that there were no differences between tissues that had been irradiated and those that had not. Suggested black-and-white infrared technique better.
||Used a video infrared imaging system and computerized image analysis to study healing progression in intraoral ulcers.
||Wilson et al 1992
