Thermography

Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging, or Thermography, is a screening device that can detect the early stages of disease of without having to use an X-Ray, sonography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or other medical imaging methods. It is a non-evasive process that uses an infrared-sensing camera that develops a color image on a computer of a body’s thermal patterns. It detects hormonal imbalances that cause an increase in temperature visible to the thermographic scan.

Thermography is a safe, pain-free, and radiation-free way to detect physiological changes of the body in real-time and is beneficial for early intervention of health issues that could become problematic if left untreated. It’s especially effective in neurology, vascular medicine, sports medicine, and Oncology.

As radiation naturally emits from the body through metabolism, a thermographic camera works by detecting variations in body temperature and is often used to track changes in people with fibrocystic conditions, infections, allergies and diseases. Thermography imaging tests are sensitive to subtle changes in the body that can reveal hidden issues. This is often used to confirm suspicions found in self- examination and precludes more advanced testing such as a mammogram. Thermography does not replace other necessary screening methods, but they can be a powerful tool to detect early disease development.

A thermography scan is reliably accurate. As a screening tool, it has been shown to be 97% effective at detecting abnormalities. Here are some of the best uses of thermography:

  • Breast health
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Dental issues
  • Diabetes
  • General toxicity
  • Immune and lymphatic system functions
  • Inflammation
  • Joint health
  • Liver problems
  • Lungs and heart issues
  • Nerve health
  • Pancreas function
  • Sinus infections
  • Stomach and colon issues
  • Spleen function
  • Thyroid health

Full body thermal imaging can be highly beneficial, especially for women. The balance of progesterone to estrogen is an important function of the female body and levels of estrogen can be seen on thermal images. Thermography is a powerful tool your doctor can use in determining the cause or origination of pain, to document an injury or condition, to monitor progress and prescribe treatment.
