In 92 consecutive patients admitted with suspected acute deep venous thrombosis, (DVT), the screening value of a new thermographic equipment, DeVeTherm, was evaluated with phlebography as a reference. The predictive value was 0.29 (0.19-0.41) of a positive thermography, and 0.68 (0.43-0.87) of a negative thermography. These results do not justify application of DeVeTherm as a screening method for DVT.
