In the fourth episode of “Thermography: Science, Health and Sport” we introduce Paolo Minafra, Head of Medical Staff at Torino FC. Paolo is Radioligst and Sports Medicine Doctor. He is an expert using different techniques as ultrasound or thermography.

He started using Infrared Thermography in 2012 at Palermo. Since then, thermal imaging is very important tool to support decisions regarding diagnosis and return to play.

He described us an interesting case where MRI and ultrasound didn’t detect a potential injury because they are more focused on muscle structure, and thermography did because it is more focused on the functionality (neuromuscular fatigue): two different aproaches.
