This paper discusses the problem of the demand for modern thermal vision in medicine. The causes of the decline of interest in it among clinicians are considered, and possible ways are presented of improving the methodology of thermal-vision equipment and the optimum versions of the application of medical thermal-vision apparatus at various levels.
