Over 800 peer-reviewed studies on thermography exist in the index-medicus literature.
Strict standardized interpretation protocols have been established for over 15 years.
For instance, radiography and ultrasonography refer to anatomy. Thermography, however, is based on thermodynamics and thermokinetics, which are unfamiliar to most physicians, though

man is  experiencing heat production and exchange in every situation he undergoes or creates.
Considering the contribution that thermography has demonstrated thus far in the field of early cancer detection, all possibilities should be considered for promoting further technical, biological, and clinical research in this procedure.
