In brief: Questionable

There is currently no proven thermal imaging technique but hopefully sometime in the near future!

In brief: Medical value? Comin

The medical value of thermography (or thermal imaging) is not yet proven / evident.
Thermography has military, screening, & industrial uses; for instance, to check to see which passengers have elevated body temp (1 of the symptoms of H1N1 influenza). It is being investigated to help with plastic surgeries & wound care, but its adoption has not been widespread or universally accepted at this point.

In brief: Thermal imaging

Temperature readings on the body surface correlate with underlying function.
Thermal imaging is a cutting edge technology that can detect changes due to disease or cancer without any harmful radiation.
