The vascular system is your body’s network of blood vessels. It includes the arteries, veins and capillaries that carry blood to and from the heart. Vascular system issues can be serious to your overall health and wellness. Arteries can become thick and cause problems such as atherosclerosis, blood clots can clog vessels and block blood flow to the heart and brain, and weakened blood vessels can burst causing internal bleeding. You develop a higher risk of developing vascular disease as you get older.
Other factors include:
- Family history of vascular or heart diseases
- Illness or injury
- Long periods of sitting or standing still
- Any condition that affects the heart and blood vessels, such as diabetes or high cholesterol
Thermal Imaging & Vascular Disease
HE@T Thermography utilizes state of the art infrared thermal cameras to evaluate cellular and vascular patterns throughout the body. Thermal imaging focuses on heat temperature symmetry between one side of the body and the other. Asymmetry in thermal and vascular patterns can be early indictors of dysfunction and potential issues.
