Abnormal Vascular Finding

Abnormal Vascular Finding - Client Suspects Mesothelioma

Thermal Images Copyright The Thermogram CenterThe vascular finding in the thoracic region of this 53 year old male raises the index of suspicion for an abnormal vascular process and/or a pathological process in the spine or lungs. It was strongly recommended that the client see his primary care physician for further testing, i.e. CT.

Client already Diagnosed with Lung Cancer…

Client already Diagnosed with Lung Cancer before Thermal Imaging

Thermal Images copyright The Thermogram CenterThis female client had already been diagnosed with lung cancer before being thermal imaged. Can you see the blood supply that may be associated with the cancer?

Before and After Treatment: Bulging Disc

Before and After Treatment: Bulging Disc, L5/S1 Nerve Root Irritation:

Thermal Images copyright The Thermogram CenterThis 39 year old female's complaints included right posterolateral thigh pain. The right lumbosacral "hockeystick" sign in the left image raises the index of suspicion for a disc bulge at this level. There is correlation with mild cooling seen over the L5/S1. Following treatment with her own provider, the client reported no pain and her post treatment image, above right, no longer includes the "hockeystick" sign.

Lung Field Examples: Stress vs. Compromise

Lung Field Examples: Stress vs. Compromise

Thermal Images Copyright The Thermogram CenterThe client imaged at left, above, has increased temperatures over each lung field, as indicated in red. Also note the same over the left bronchial tube. This client had complaints of congestion, which can cause stress, irritation, and inflammation, and subsequent heat.

The client imaged at right, above, had decreased temperatures over each lung field, as indicated in green. This client's history included pneumonia in her distant past, and bronchitis twice in the past year. The thermal findings raise the index of suspicion for slight compromise of lung function - less heat can suggest less function, relative to surrounding tissue and organs.

Ascending Colon 8 months prior to Appendix Rupture

Ascending Colon 8 months prior to Appendix Rupture

Thermal Images copyright The Thermogram Center

These images are abdominal views from a 38 year old female with no abdominal complaints or concerns. The image at left indicates heat along the ascending colon raising the index of suspicion for irritation/inflammation. Months later, she reported that her appendix had ruptured, formed an abcess, and poisoned much of her ascending colon.

The middle image was taken months after the surgery to remove the abcess and approximately 9 inches of ascending colon. No signs of heat along the colon appear. The right image was taken many months later, and indicates more heat (stress) over the ascending colon/transverse colon juncture than that of the transverse colon/descending colon juncture. Since the temperature difference between junctures is small, the finding is not clinically significant, but thermal imaging may provide a way to monitor thermal findings.

Right Kidney Stress

Thermal Images copyright The Thermogram CenterRight Kidney Stress?

This client reports that she does not drink enough water. In addition to the neuromuscular findings in the upper back, there are thermal findings (increased temperatures) over the field of the right kidney, raising the index of suspicion for slight stress.

Infection/Inflammation Resolved

Infection/Inflammation Resolved

Thermal Images copyright The Thermogram CenterRegarding the top and bottom images at left:

- This 51 year old female had no symptoms in the teeth, mouth, cheek, sinuses, or head.

- Imaging revealed temperatures 3.95C warmer on the left cheek than on the right cheek.

- This thermal pattern raises the index of suspicion for infection/inflammation, and prompted the client to consult her ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat Doctor) who prescribed oral antibiotics.

Regarding the top and bottom images at right:

- One month later, the images on the right resulted.

- Note the change in cheek patterns, going from very asymmetrical to relatively symmetrical in just one months time.

Skin Concern and Need for Further Evaluation

Thermal Images copyright The Thermogram CenterSkin Concern and Need for Further Evaluation

This 58 year old female was monitoring an irregular skin spot on the top of her left thigh. Thermal imaging revealed heat associated at the spot. Since heat can suggest concern, she decided to visit a dermatologist for further evaluation.

Symmetrical Pattern – Thyroid

Thermal Image of a Thyroid copyright The Thermogram CenterSymmetrical Pattern - Thyroid

Can you see the thermal patterns associated with this client's thyroid function?

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) and Diabetes*

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) and Diabetes*

Thermal Images copyright The Thermogram CenterThis 53 year old female suffered three auto accidents and complained of chronic back and limb pain with foot pain upon rising. Various thermal images indicated focal hot zones over C6, C7, C8 with loss of associated dermatomes, thermal findings raising the index of suspicion with CRPS. While she had never been tested for diabetes, the classic bite marks in the fingers/thermal images suggest the need for further evaluation.*

Fibromyalgia / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Thermal Images copyright The Thermogram CenterFibromyalgia / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

This client had a 15 year history of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Note the multiple focal regions of increased heat consistent with myofascial pathology and correlating with the client's areas of tenderness and pain.      - Courtesy of Dr. William Amalu

Stage 1 RSD / CRPS:

Thermal Images copyright The Thermogram CenterStage 1 RSD / CRPS:

This client had severe regional pain, altered skin temperature and color changes, and severe sensitivity to touch in the left arm for over 6 months. The large area of heat loss in the left arm raises the index of suspicion for serious sympathetic hyperactivity and supports her doctor's diagnosis of stage 1 RSDS/CRPS.

Surprise:

Thermal Image Copyright The Thermogram CenterSurprise:

This females complaint included pain. Thermal imaging led to discovery of a previously undiagnosed right leg arteriovenous malformation over 27mm deep. As a result, the client was spared a sympathectomy. Vascular surgery corrected the problem.*      - Courtesy of Hooshang Hooshmand, M.D.
