What is Thermal Imaging?
Medical thermal imaging, or thermography, is a high-tech health screening tool (a high-definition infrared camera) that creates a digital map of your body and temperature patterns – these patterns may show abnormalities that can be indicative of inflammation (or abnormal heat spots on the body).
Here’s where it gets really interesting…
Inflammation is the first sign of degenerative diseases and other chronic health conditions. Early detection of this inflammation may help to prevent those health conditions from even developing in the first place.
How It Works
Thermography registers skin-surface temperature from 112 different points on the body. It displays an image yielding a scan of 25 organs, issues, or systems and their function. While X-rays give a structural view, thermography gives us a functional perspective based on
physiology and cold stress response. By computer analysis of the skin temperature patterns, the doctor gains a direct index of the metabolic activity in various parts of the body. The thermography scan will also show inflamed, degenerated, or overactive organ or tissue processes
What are the Benefits of Thermal Imaging?
Thermography is a non-invasive diagnostic tool with scientifically valid, reproducible results.
Thermography is an FDA approved adjunctive diagnostic device so the results can be trusted.
It can detect dysfunction even when conventional blood tests and radio tests were negative.
Why Get Tested with Thermal Imaging?
Thermal imaging has been an available medical test for more than 50 years, and its non-medical applications pre-date that by a decade. Despite controversy in its early days, this tool has withstood the test of time and has become the mainstay in many diagnostic endeavors. The technology in modern day thermography as well as properly training technicians has improved tremendously over the years. With the increasing technological advances of thermal imaging cameras and the newest and best software available, WHY NOT BE TESTED WITH THERMOGRAPHY?
