Abstract
In this paper we present our results concerning the study, design and construction of an infrared radiometer with digital signal processing for medical applications. The design and the practical realization of the system included an a priori study for performing the parameters analysis, both for the radiation source and the detector range, and it can be used for measuring with the desired resolution of the signal power in relation with the diagnosed situations. The pyroelectric type sensor represents the reference element of the system, so that in function of its type and parameters we have designed the source pointing optical ensemble as well as the electronics required for the detector output signal processing. The interface with the operator gives us the possibility of controlling the accuracy of the measurements by using a computer terminal, and also to monitorize the measured values and to modify the parameters by means of an external signal.
