Bilateral Thermogram of a Tibia  
The hypervascularity of pagetic bone may be associated with an increase in blood flow to adjacent soft tissue and skin, thus increasing the skin temperature. This is most easily appreciated in the tibia, as seen in the bilateral thermography of this patient with Paget's disease.

  The thermogram on the left shows increased heat as evidenced by the orange color, as contrasted to the normal contralateral limb.
