Thermography uses an infrared camera that measures the surface temperature of your skin to detect patterns which may indicate the need for further clinical evaluation. Thermography does not involve compression or any form of physical contact. Thermography is a passive non-x-ray technique that has become an accepted means of screening for abnormalities in many developed countries. Since there is no radiation or compression involved, Thermography is free of physical risks. It can also be done on men or women of any age.
Thermography gives you a very early look at the most important indicator of a potential health problem – the pooling of cells (inflammation). Instead of waiting for symptoms to manifest and a disease process to be diagnosed, Thermography detects inflammation, often long before you may feel any symptoms or be diagnosed with an actual disease.
