Abstract: Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disease that affects the common joints. It causes pain/swelling and bone erosion/joint deformity if the condition worsens. Hence, it is important to monitor one’s condition to prevent deterioration and avoid any possible physical disabilities. Researchers at Staffordshire University have found that palm and finger temperature increase significantly in patients with RA. Therefore, thermal imaging can be an effective method in diagnosing and monitoring this condition.
