What is Thermography?
Thermography is a non-invasive diagnostic technique that allows the examiner to visualize and quantify changes in skin surface temperature. It creates images that illustrate heat patterns in the body. The thermal images are analyzed for abnormalities which may be signs of disease in the body.
Inflammation is a precursor to many diseases such as cancer, arthritis, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and HBP. Early detection of inflammation may help you prevent many negative health conditions from developing.
Measuring inflammation through thermal imaging is a proactive, preventative method for detecting diseases which significantly improves your chances for longevity and good health.1
Thermography & Breast Cancer Prevention
Thermography can detect irregular patterns in the breast, conditions that occur often before a noticeable lump is formed. In some cases, such as inflammatory cancer, there are no lumps to be detected by self-exam or Mammogram. This is why adding Thermography to your annual routine can help with early detection. Thermal Imaging is painless, has no compression, is non-invasive, and emits absolutely no radiation.1
