What Thermal Imaging Is / Is Not

 Thermal Imaging is Not:

Night vision: night vision equipment amplifies visual light.
X-ray vision-thermal imaging can not "see-through" opaque objects.

A mold detector: thermal imaging detects the effects of moisture which is always related to the growth of mold spores.

More sensitive than human touch: thermal sensors of the skin are more sensitive to temperature change than most electronic equipment.  Back
