Medical Infrared Thermal Imaging is a major break-through in preventive medicine. It is the perfect blend between the preventive well-care philosophy of eastern medicine and the highly technical innovations of today’s world.
Certified by the FDA in 1985, thermography is accepted as a safe, non-invasive investigational and diagnostic tool that can help identify the earliest signs of breast and cardiovascular disease before they have done their damage.
We have an unprecedented opportunity to eliminate these diseases through the power of prevention for those who seek our help.
For breast screening, thermography is not a stand-alone diagnostic device and does not replace the mammogram. Thermography is actually able to recognize changes in the breast while the tumor is still in the microscopic stages, as many as 8-10 years before clinical detection with mammography or ultrasound.
Medical Thermal Imaging uses no radiation, but takes infra-red pictures of otherwise invisible changes in the body, using a highly specialized digital infrared thermal imaging camera. For breast imaging we take images of the chest, lateral views under each arm and each breast individually for a complete view for analysis. By focusing on the physiology of the breast, the interpreting MD is able to determine what activity, if any, is developing in the breast tissue.
The patient receives a written report with analysis and opinions within a week, from an MD who has been specifically trained to interpret the thermal images. We also review the report of findings with the patient to assure complete understanding of the results.
Thermography can see physiological changes throughout the body. Discover how prevention is the ultimate problem solver, and how thermography makes it possible.
