This work describes some recent results on the biomedical use of infrared (IR) images under three aspects. One is the use of thermal imaging for 3D modelling of the human body with special focus on the reproduction of the breast geometry. Such technique could be used for breast reconstruction or choose of external prosthesis to be used for temperature calculations. Secondly, they can be used for identification of the limits of visibility of the internal masses and tumours on the skin surface temperature. The final aspect is on the use for early diagnoses of breast diseases.
