Abstract
Abuses, although rare, do occur in the field of infrared thermography. Qualitative analysts may misinterpret hot and cold areas as a result of inexperience. Improper quantitative analyses may result from poor or outdated calibration, misunderstanding of the radiation heat transfer process and misapplication of instruments. Certification may be necessary in the future. Guidelines are presented to help potential customers choose an infrared service or instrument.
