Abstract: In view of the lack of objective detection methods for human health in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), this paper proposes a method based on infrared thermal image sign mode evaluation and identification. From the perspective of data collection, three classification methods are proposed. From medical point of view, the theory of infrared thermography is as follows: governing exterior to infer interior, recognise the whole through observation of the small parts, master both permanence and change. From the perspective of basic methods, health assessment is mainly based on the human symmetry, uniformity, thermal sequence and three-dimensional information. On the basis of the evolution of human health in TCM, this paper proposes the technical route of evaluation and identification of infrared thermal image sign modes. This paper is of great significance to establish an objective method for the evaluation and identification of infrared physical signs based on human health of TCM.
