Abstract

In a brief review, the beneficial outcomes that have arisen from simultaneous use of laser- and infrared thermography (IRT)-based techniques are demonstrated. The most recent literary and original experimental results collected from different research and practical areas are presented. It is shown that modern IRT acts as an indispensable laser partner in various biomedical and many other applications and technologies. And vice versa, the laser-based methods and techniques often serve as an appropriate research instrument enriching IRT measurement data with independently obtained information.
