Hi April,
Yes, intrusive thoughts can also be intrusive images. I wouldn’t get stuck on naming a particular theme as not all intrusive thoughts/feelings fall neatly into a category. With OCD a person will have an intrusive thought/feeling or image get stuck and then they have the need to avoid/or do something to get brief relief. But the more they do (or avoid) the more that thought or image sticks around.

Here is a YouTube video for him to watch if he is open to it: https://youtu.be/nyWd_6D5DVc and another one on the same topic here: https://youtu.be/wKLIi3WRT7k
