Thermography is the only method available for visualizing pain and pathology in the body and an advanced tool for detecting diseases and monitoring response to treatment.

Introduction to Thermography

Thermography is thermal (heat) photography that uses a highly sensitive camera and state of the art software to demonstrate areas of heat (inflammation) and cold (poor circulation). Thermography does not penetrate your body like X-rays do — it reads the infrared radiation your body emits and evaluates the parasympathetic nervous system via the skin blood flow. Thermography detects thermal abnormalities before a symptom occurs. The thermal images are sent to a thermologist (a medical doctor with special training in interpreting the scans). The thermologist provides you with a report that highlight areas of concern.

Themography can be used on every part of the body except the brain, because the skull is too thick for thermal imaging to penetrate. Many people use thermography to monitor progress in their healing process — whether it’s inflammation in your intestines or your elbow, thermography is a great tool to observe changes. Athletes often use thermography to track their progress healing from an injury. Thermography is also beneficial for tracking improvements when undergoing PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic field) therapy.

Breast health is the most common reason people seek out thermography. When using thermography to monitor breast health there is a recommended schedule for best results. The recommended schedule consists of two initial appointments: first your initial breast scan, and second, approximately 3 months later, a baseline breast scan. The thermologist compares these two scans to determine your baseline thermal patterns and identify any changes between scans. If nothing concerning shows in the scans, annual scans are recommended.

Getting Started with Breast Thermography

Every woman has her own unique thermal fingerprint. What may appear pathological for one woman may be totally normal for another. When you start breast thermography we need to establish your thermal pattern. We do this with a series of 2 scans, 12 weeks apart (see Breast Health Package). If there is no significant change during that time, it is recommended that you just do an annual scan. If there is a significant change, the thermologist (medical doctor who reads the scans) will recommend a course of action for further testing.
