What is Thermography?
Thermography is a quick, non-invasive clinical image that converts infrared radiation emitted from the skins surface into electrical impulses that are visualized in color. Whereas most medical images are a test of anatomy, thermography is a test of physiology or function.
Thermal imaging is a radiation-free imaging procedure suitable for men, women and children. The detection and monitoring of a number of diseases and physical injuries is achieved by showing thermal abnormalities present in the body.
Thermography is a preventative test that can detect subtle changes in the body 5-10 years before other tools and is valuable in addition to other diagnostic tests. Its major clinical value is in its high sensitivity to pathology in the vascular, muscular, neural and skeletal systems and as such can contribute to the pathogenesis and diagnosis made by the clinician.
