Hidden water intrusion found with thermal imaging

We found hidden water intrusion on a home inspection in Houston today. With out the use of our thermal imaging this would not have been found. there wasn't any water stains on the ceilings in these areas.
What will we find in your new home. What will the other home inspectors miss with out using a thermal imaging camera?

The first picture is what a normal home inspector sees.

The second picture is what we see on our home inspections.
The dark blue areas are the hidden moisture. We back up our findings with a non evasive moisture meter.
