Objectives : The aims of this study are to find out proper methods to assess Bell’s palsy with DITI and to validate the correlation between DITI of acupoints and the H-B scale. Methods : 36 Bell’s palsy patients and 10 healthy people were measured. We checked thermal differences between abnormal and normal acupoint sites measured by using DITI and the H-B scale. Results : There was no significant thermal difference between abnormal and normal sites. The H-B scale was significantly correlated with thermal differences between ST6 and TE17. Conclusions : DITI was useful for evaluating the severity of Bell’s palsy.
