  • After several clinical examinations no cause could be diagnosed for the lameness in the left front foot. Nerve block injections were to be the next test tried. Thermography clearly identified a localized area of infection which was easily treated once found.
  • Transcript

    • 1. DITI Thermograms. Meditherm TM
    • 2. Phlebitis Varicosity with perforator
    • 3. Autonomic pattern relating to CAD Local dental infection Muscular inflammation infraspinatus and deltoid
    • 4. T4 Syndrome Myofascial trigger point over upper rhomboid (minimus)
    • 5. RSD (CRPS) of the left hand. Glove-like hypothermia. The return of normal sympathetic function after treatment was short term.
    • 6. This elderly lady had undergone a left hip replacement surgery 3 months previously and her continued leg pain raised a suspicion for DVT. The thermographic findings were not consistent with DVT, but showed a focal area of inflammation that guided a sonographer to a deep abscess near the bone. This was lanced and successfully treated with antibiotics. Small metastatic tumors indicated by focal areas of hypothermia over the lumbar spine
    • 7. This patient presented with low back pain, there were no thermal findings in the back but the abdomen showed a well defined area of inflammation over the right kidney which could refer pain to the back. Subsequent tests confirmed a kidney infection. The primary finding here is the local area of hyperthermia over the hepatic flexure of the colon. Diverticulitis was diagnosed after clinical correlation with thermographic findings.
    • 8. Radiculopathy Gout
    • 9. Sprained ankle Inflammation from Heel spur
    • 10. Football player with stress fracture, confirmed with scintigraphy Similar injury in a right leg
    • 11. Muscular inflammation over trapezius, hypothermia over T2 consistent with fibromyalgia. Local inflammation from OA
    • 12. Ankle sprains
    • 13. MVA, Steering wheel impacted the low chest, subsequent x-ray as a result of thermal findings showed fractures in the low sternum and left last rib. Local inflammation over lumbar joint spaces .
    • 14. Carotid Artery Brachial plexus
    • 15. Right side L3 L4 Radiculopathy RSD of the right hip
    • 16. Increased lymph node activity in the right digastric triangle
    • 17. TMJ Digastric inflammation
    • 18. Frozen shoulder Torticollis (wry neck)
    • 19. Myofascial inflammation (splenius) T2 Hypothermia in a CFS patient
    • 20. Focal hypothermia relating to a malignant cyst One per cent of breast cancers are found in men. The survival rate is much lower than in women as most breast cancers in men are only detected in advanced stages. This tumor was palpable at the time of imaging, there is a well established vascular feed which has even caused increased blood flow at the left brachial plexus and there is also drainage toward the sternum that extends to below the left breast. Metastasis were later found in other organs and this patient did not survive.
    • 21. Indian Elephant with infection in the bed of the nail of the fifth toe of the left front foot
    • 22. Cat scan
    • 23. C7 / 8 Radiculopathy. Carpal Tunnel Epicondylitis
    • 24. Three stress fractures of the transverse processes of the lumbar spine. This patient fell from a ladder. X-ray was inconclusive, Scintigraphy showed the fractures. Mid lumbar disc bulge to the right
    • 25. Sacral inflammation R>L Spinal inflammation Muscle attachment to scapula Kidney ?
    • 26. Scoliosis Fibromyalgia
    • 27. Oesophageal cancer Inflammation caused by morphine pump
    • 28. Right Lung Cancer Fibromyalgia
    • 29. Sprained ankle OA of the left knee Varicosities
    • 30. Varicosities and OA OA left knee
    • 31. Normal breasts
    • 32. Mastitis Fibrocystic
    • 33. Mastitis Significant vascular activity. (Angiogenesis)
    • 34. Pregnancy Benign Cyst
    • 35. DCIS DCIS Benign moles
    • 36. DCIS Greyscale
    • 37. Standard views for breast study. 2 cm DCIS
    • 38. Inflammatory carcinoma 1mm DCIS
    • 39. Fibrocystic changes DCIS
    • 40. Fibrocystic Fibrocystic
    • 41. Benign Cyst Early angiogenesis
    • 42. Fibrocystic Fibrocystic
