WHY THERMOGRAPHY?

  • radiation-free disease detection
  • quick & painless
  • results within 3 business days
  • can be done at any age
  • 83% accuracy rate
  • no harmful side-effects
  • affordable – we take health savings cards
  • do not need a physician recommendation
  • helps to determine the cause of pain
  • aids in the early detection of disease and pathology
  • identifies sensory-nerve irritation or significant soft-tissue injury
  • defines a previously diagnosed injury or condition
  • identifies any abnormalities for further diagnostic testing
  • follow the progress of healing and rehabilitation

Thermography is especially appropriate for younger women between the ages of 30 & 50 whose denser breast tissue makes it more difficult for mammography to pick up suspicious lesions. This test can provide a “clinical marker” to the mammographer that a specific area of the breast needs particularly close examination.

The faster a malignant tumor grows, the more infrared radiation it generates. For younger women, results from a thermography screening can lead to earlier detection and ultimately longer life.

Angiogenesis, or new blood vessel formation, is necessary to sustain the growth of a tumor. Breast thermography can show these formations, and so detect the possibility of breast disease far earlier than a mammogram.

BREAST THERMOGRAPHY

Breast thermography is a safe, painless, noninvasive test that takes only 20 minutes. It will alert you to subtle physiological changes that often accompany breast disease such as cancer, fibrocystic disease, infection, or vascular disease. The procedure may detect breast changes earlier than self examination, clinical examination or mammography. In fact, with Breast Thermography you may be able to detect breast disease up to 10 years earlier than other testing methods!

Women’s Health Check Thermography

With Women’s Health Check Thermography, pictures are taken of the head, neck, thyroid, breast, back and abdomen. Once the images are taken, they are sent to a team of interpreting physicians that provide a detailed report of the findings.

What may be detected?

Thyroid Disfunction

Hypothyroidism 

Hyperthyroidism 

Estrogen Dominance

Breast Disease

 

 

FULL-BODY THERMOGRAPHY

Thermography is a very sensitive and reliable way to graphically map and display temperature variations. In addition, Thermography allows us to evaluate, monitor, and document many injuries and conditions. These conditions include soft tissue injuries and sensory/autonomic nerve fiber dysfunction.

Also known as Medical Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI), Thermography’s value is in its sensitivity to detect pathology in the vascular, muscular, neural and skeletal systems. Therefore, this amazing technology gives the clinician a very clear picture of health or abnormality.

Thermography is very useful as a complementary procedure to other diagnostic modalities.

HOW THERMOGRAPHY WORKS

Thermography allows the technician to see changes in skin surface temperature. A scanning device converts infrared radiation into electrical impulses that are visualized in color on a monitor. Additionally, it graphically maps body temperature, and shows infrared radiation being emitted from the body surface. Since there is a high degree of thermal symmetry in healthy bodies, abnormal temperature differences are easily identified. Once the thermographic pictures are taken here at the center, our technicians send the images to Meditherm’s team of Physicians for interpretation. The Physicians at Meditherm then send the interpretation report back to our office within a few business days. This process is accurate, quick, and painless.

N

Do not use lotions, deodorants or powder on the day of test.

N

Do not have physical therapy, massage, or electromyography on the same day thermography is performed

N

Do not smoke for 2 hours before the test.

N

Stay out of strong sunlight on the day of the test.

FAQs

Is thermography safe?

Yes! Thermal imaging (thermography) uses no radiation or intravenous access and does not touch the body. The procedure is painless, completely safe and FDA approved. Infrared imaging does not replace any other form of imaging (e.g. CT, MRI, mammography), but is designed to be used in addition to other tests to provide physiological information that cannot be obtained from any other examination procedure.

Does Thermography replace mammograms?

Absolutely not! However, do mammograms replace thermography? The answer to this is also no. In fact, the two tests complement each other. Thermography is to be used in addition to mammography as part of regular breast health care.

Can Thermography detect problems with the stomach, colon, heart, immune system, female reproductive organs, prostate, and other internal organs?

The easy answer here is no. Thermography merely detects heat to a depth of 5mm beneath the surface of the body. As such, thermography cannot see into the skull, chest cavity, abdomen, or pelvic areas. If you are concerned about a possible internal disorder or the spread of cancer, there are tests and imaging technologies that are better suited for this purpose. Please get medical advice for the most appropriate tests for your condition.

What happens when I have a thermal scan taken?

A thermal scan takes approximately 10-45 minutes depending on which part of the body is being scanned. You will remove all jewelry and clothes from the part of the body being scanned (for full body scans you leave underpants on), and will be asked to wear a surgical gown. For a breast scan, you will be asked to disrobe from the waist up.

ACCT Certified Thermography Technician

After having 4 years of experience working with thermography, I’ve seen it bring clarity and peace of mind to many women who want to find out more answers about their breast health. There’s a huge need for an effective non-invasive approach to breast disease detection and thermography fills those shoes.
The key to health, wellness and happiness is an overall balance and awareness in our daily lives. I have two sons who are 11 and 8. They inspire me every day to live my life to the fullest as well as challenge me to develop the balance that’s needed in order to enjoy the life I create. 
I know in order to enjoy these experiences for the long-term, I need to do the necessary self-care that will ensure a long and healthy life. This knowledge is what fuels everything that I do and I want to bring it to you.
