Estimation of thermal properties in vivo tissue is important to predict and control biological procedures, since they are dependent of temperature behavior. However, in vivo estimation of human thermal properties in a non-invasive and non-damage manner is a challenging task. In this paper, we propose an approach to estimate thermal properties in vivo. The approach is non-invasive and non-damage since it uses only external measurements. Considering the experimental results, the non-invasive procedure using heat flux and temperature variation is a feasible tool to estimate thermal properties in in vivo.
