This study establishes a safe and yet reliable screening procedure to detect patients with carotid occlusive disease. During the past 1½ years all patients referred to the nuclear diagnostic laboratory for brain scanning because of neurologic complaints or findings have also had radioisotope angiography and cerebral blood flow studies done with the gamma camera. Six hundred twenty-four procedures of this type have been done. Of these, 27 have shown evidence of major occlusive disease of the common carotid, internal carotid, and middle cerebral vessels. All these patients had infrared thermography performed either with the Barnes thermograph or more recently with
