How Does Thermography Work?
Thermography can be used as a whole body analysis for assessing surface heat temperatures that can be correlated by a physician for many reasons. Uses for thermography are similar to that of an oral thermometer, a stethoscope, or any other medical test that brings together a better physiological assessment of a patient. How an infrared thermal camera works is through a complicated high tech manner. The human body emits infrared radiation that the sensor on the thermal camera reads and through calibration translates it in to a temperature reading. The camera that the thermographer uses and the calibration process is one of the most important aspects to medical thermography.
Who Analyses the Thermography Images?
Our system relies on the advanced training and experiences that our interpreters have. Our top interpreters have 25-40 years of experience in medical thermography. Each image taken is analyzed by three levels of interpreters with varying degrees of expertise. Our level 3 interpreters are the highest level in the world and are PACT certified.
How Do I Receive My Results?
After the interpretation process has completed the results will be available by secure email . You will receive a notification that your report is ready. You may elect to have the report sent to your own doctor or we do have Consulting doctors available for your convenience.
Full Body Imaging
Thermography which is a finely tuned technology can find abnormalities in human wellness long before the body’s sensory organs can identify them. This is true for breast cancer; thyroid dysfunction; inflammation leading to cancer, heart disease, and other diseases.
Breast Thermography testing is a radiation-free state-of- the-art screening procedure that captures heat images of the breast to aid in the early detection of cancer and fibrocystic breast disease. As a tumor grows it develops a blood supply that emits heat that is detected on a modern infrared device as seen below. Thermography can establish overall breast health and is an excellent test for assessing fibrocystic breasts and response to treatment. Thermography works great as a part of a multi-modal approach.
