We establish a probe type reconstruction scheme for identifying an inclusion inside a heat conductive medium by nondestructive testing called thermography. For the one space dimension, this has been already achieved by Y. Daido, H. Kang and G. Nakamura. The present paper shows that their result can be generalized to higher space dimension.
