Radiation- Free, Painless, and No Contact With The Body
Thermography is an ideal medical imaging tool used to screen for skin surface abnormalities. Malignancies require a vast amount of blood vessels to support their growth. This growth of vascularity produces higher degrees of heat, which can be detected using our state of the art digital infrared thermal cameras. Detecting abnormalities at an early stage can increase treatment options, quality of life, and life expectancy.
Incorporating thermography screenings into your routine dermatologist check ups can increase your chances of detection.
