Is the FLIR ONE for iOS Personal Thermal Imager able to penetrate human subjects in order to detect implants that emit micro amounts of heat?

Would this be a useful tool for Physicians to check to see if an implant is functioning correctly, OR functioning at all, by visually detecting an implanted device by its heat signature? In order to prevent unnecessary surgery.

    Please don't think that a cheap attachment for a phone can take the place of medical investigations and diagnosis.
