Abstract
Thermography is a generic term indicating a process that results in a thermal map called a thermogram. Several types of thermography are reviewed including visual thermography, liquid crystal thermography, thermal sensitive coating thermography, thermocouple thermography and infrared thermography. Many infrared thermographic practitioners refer to their field as thermography when, in fact, it should be referred to as infrared thermography.
