Default displaying images from mySql DB in html

I'm using dreamweaver mx2004 to develop a website and have been trying to insert an image from a mysql DB and can't get it to work.
Here is the code:
<?php $var1=($row_Recordset1["PROD_ID"]); ?> <?php echo $var1; //for testing ?>
<?php $PROD_ID = $var1; ?>
<td width="150" height="150" align="center" valign="top"><?php echo ("<img src=getImage.php?PROD_ID=$var1>"); ?></td

Then I have a separate php file called getImage.php

<?php //getImage.php

//echo $PROD_ID;
$connID = mysql_select_db($database_testingDB, $testingDB);
$result = @mysql_query(
if(!$result) exit;
$row = @mysql_result($result, 0, "IMAGE_THUMB");
if(!$row) exit;
header("Content Type: jpeg");
echo $row;

When it runs I get the webpage fine, but no images, just image place holders.

Any ideas would be greatly appreicated.
Thank you,

Have you checked if you are using absolute or relative folder locations?
