What is Thermal Imaging?
Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (Thermography) creates images that illustrate heat patterns in the body. This is done by a digital camera that records infrared radiation that is emitted off of the body. The camera reads the temperature and creates a picture for us. The pictures are interpreted for any abnormal heat patterns, which could be a sign of disease. It is important to note that Medical Thermology Practitioners are trained and licensed to interpret these scans. Do not confuse us with Non-Medically licensed alternative Practitioners who may also offer Thermography but are not licensed to interpret them.
Prevention Is Key For A Long Healthy Life
Inflammation is a precursor to many types of diseases such as Cancer, Arthritis, High Blood Pressure, Stroke, etc. Early detection of inflammation may help prevent many negative health issues in the future. Thermography is a proactive and preventative method for detecting diseases.
Thermography For The Rest Of The Body
Thermography is known for breast scans, but there is so much more it can do! It can detect arthritis early on, treatment can be established to help before further degeneration occurs. Back and neck pain show up as red or white. This can help an individual target the source of their pain. Thermography can detect Sinus Inflammation, TMJ, gum disease, and infected teeth. The immune system can be observed at the levels of T1 & T2 in the spine. Levels of heat in that region can indicate immune dysfunction, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and aching joints. Digestive disorders such as IBS, Diverticulitis and Chron's Disease are often visible in Thermal Imaging. Address Inflammation in your gut early on and restoring your health is much more likely.
Heart Disease Prevention
Thermography is able to assess inflammation in the Carotid Arteries, which could be a precursor to stroke and blood clots. If inflammation or an occlusion of the carotid artery is visible, additional testing is highly recommended.
What To Expect On The Day Of Your Scan
Arrive on time to fill out all paperwork. Be sure to avoid heavy exercise, deodorant, spicy foods, hot beverages, body creams/lotions, gum-chewing, and any tight fitting clothing. Most appointments take around 30 minutes. Any questions? Please feel free to email or call me.
