Body Thermography Imaging
Thermal Imaging is also known as Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (D.I.T.T) or Thermography. This is a non-invasive clinical imaging technique for detecting and monitoring diseases and physical injuries by showing any thermal abnormalities present in the body. Thermography uses special infrared-sensitive cameras to digitally record images of the variations in surface temperature of the human body. The recorded images are calling thermograms. These thermograms are then analyzed by a medical doctor who will give diagnosis/prognosis based on the images.
Thermography can be used as an aid in diagnosis and prognosis. It also as well as monitoring therapy progress for conditions and injuries which include: Artery Inflammation, Arthritis, Back Injuries, Breast Cancer, Breast Disease, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Cystic Formations, DCIS, Dental & TMJ, Digestive Disorders, Disc Disease, Diverticulitis, Fibromyalgia, Headache/Migraine Cause, Heart Disease, Inflammatory Pain, Referred Pain Syndrome, RSD (CRPS), Sprain/Strain, Stroke Screening, Thrombosis (Deep Vein), Unexplained Pain, Varicosities, Vascular Disease, Whiplash, and much more!
Breast Thermography is approved by the FDA as an alternative to a traditional mammogram. It can detect signs of cancer up to ten years earlier. As a safe, non-invasive screen technique for breast cancer, there is no touching or compression of the breast during the exam, which only takes minutes to complete.
How does it work?
Benefits of Medical Thermal Imaging
- Earlier detection: Generally, a tumor is first detected by a mammogram when it is about 2.5 cm, or the size of a dime, and at this stage it has been growing for at least 8 years. Thermography can detect cancer 8-10 years earlier than a traditional mammogram when it is in its earlier stages.
- Mammography can be a cause for multiple unnecessary biopsies. Studies have shown that biopsies for 70% to 80% of all positive mammograms do not show any presence of cancer. Breast Thermography has an average accuracy of 90%, and research shows that it can significantly improve long-term survival rates.
