What is thermography?
Medical thermography is a non-invasive clinical procedure for detecting and monitoring a number of diseases and physical injuries by showing thermal abnormalities present in the body.
Thermography uses ultrasensitive medical infrared cameras and sophisticated computers to detect, analyze and produce high-resolution images of these temperature variations in the body.
Thermography creates a digital map of your body that illustrates heat patterns - patterns that may detect some condition or abnormality. Just as unique as a fingerprint, each patient has a particular infrared map. Any modification of this infrared map on images taken overtime may constitute an early sign of abnormality.
Medical thermography is filling the gap in clinic diagnosis, as CT scans, ultrasound and MRIs are all test of anatomy. There is NO touching, NO radiation and NO pain involved in thermography.
Thermography's best use is its ability to detect subtle, vascular and physiological change, that if left unattended, may become a degenerative disease.
