Conditions Exhibiting Thermal Findings

Decades of research indicates that many conditions, particularly those involving soft-tissue damage or pain, and blood flow alteration, may be observable with thermal imaging. However, there are no guarantees that a condition will be observable by thermal imaging. Additionally, the absence of thermal findings cannot rule out significant health conditions.

Musculoskeletal/Neuromuscular/Neurologic

  • sports-related injury/soft-tissue damage, like sprain, strain, spasm, tear, repetitive strain, inflammation, and whiplash
  • Herniated/ruptured/slipped/diseased disc
  • chronic pain/neuropathy/radiculopathy/carpal tunnel and thoracic outlet syndromes/brachial and lumbosacral plexus injuries
  • pain syndromes, like compartment, regional, chronic regional, and referred/Reynaud’s disease
  • fibromyalgia/myofascial pain/trigger points/headache/migraine/trigeminal neuralgia
  • arthritis/chondromalacia/subluxations/ deep contusions/fractures/tendonitis/ bursitis/synovitis
  • nerve entrapment, impingement, pressure, irritation, stretch, trauma/ abnormalities/causalgia

Vascular/Cardiovascular

Thermal imaging is applied to studies of the diseases of the blood vessels in the head, neck, and limbs:

  • arteriosclerosis/carotid artery insufficiency/stroke screening/vascular perfusion abnormalities
  • deep vein thrombosis/vascular disease/shunting/varicosis/micro-circulation

Thyroid/Endocrine/Metabolic

  • thyroid function/gallbladder disease/superficial lymphatic centers/diabetic neuropathy

Others

  • TMJ dysfunction/dental infections
  • lupus skin abnormalities/neoplasia (melanoma, squamous cell, basal cell)
  • Breast - lymphatic congestion/estrogen stimulation/inflammation/mastitis/infection/fibrocysts/cancer
