Abstract
Are one of the pathologies more frequent in infant surgery - intra-abdominal, inguinal or ectopic. With actual methods of diagnosis some inguinal and none of the abdominal are detectable. Change of temperature is one of the elements to explain the detection in the maturity and development of the testes. Hormonal stimuli are used to obtain the increase in the development and descent of the testis. In this research we will test if thermography can be an effective technology for the diagnosis in the localization and morphology testicular. Another important feature will be to test if thermography may detect some of the stimulus testis with induction hormonal.
