This short report introduces a recently published checklist for reporting thermographic studies in sports and exercise medicine. The checklist is the result of a Delphi consensus process, which was achieved after intensive discussion among 24 experts from different fields such as sport sciences, physiology, physiotherapy and medicine. The checklist contains in total 15 items in the domains "participants' demographic information" (3 items), "Camera/exam room or environmental conditions" (8 items) and ""Recording and analysis of the thermal image" (4 items). Applying the checklist will improve the comparability and thus data pooling of thermographic studies.
