Medical Thermography

Therm side faceMedical Thermography is also referred to as Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI). Medical thermograms can detect early abnormalities before they are clinically evident or a disease is diagnosable. They also monitor the progress of current health care therapies. At Wellness Alternatives, medical thermography contributes to our holistic approach of treating the whole body.

If you have concerns about how your autoimmune condition is affecting your body. I would highly recommend scheduling your Thermography appointment.

Thermography’s major clinical value is in its high sensitivity to pathology as it relates to inflammation, vascular activity, and lymphatic activity. In addition, thermography can offer considerable financial savings by avoiding the need for more expensive investigations.

This non-invasive form of testing allows practitioners to diagnose and monitor a large number of injuries and conditions. Inflammation is at the root of most diseases. Some of the common applications of thermography are: breast pathologies, vessel disease, oral-dental infections, cancers, and inflamed organs or tissue.  Inflammation is the first evidence of disease.

Therm breastThere are 4 key ways thermography can contribute to patient diagnosis and care: 1) It can define the extent of a lesion of which a diagnosis has previously been made. 2) It can localize an abnormal area not previously identified, so that further diagnostic testing can be explored. 3) It can detect early lesions before they are clinically evident. 4) It can monitor the healing process.

Medical Thermography is non-invasive, painless, without radiation, and FDA approved. Wellness Alternatives utilizes technicians that have years of experience and a physician interpretation service which offers the most advanced, professional, and innovative approach to medical thermal imaging. All interpretation physicians are board certified thermologists at Duke University. Most testing takes less than 30 minutes and the results are sent to the patient in approximately 9 days.

An informational meeting will be held on May 8, 2013, 6:30 PM at Wellness Alternatives discussing Medical Thermography. If you suffer from any inflammatory or autoimmune condition, you won’t want to miss this.

Thermography “sees” inflammation, vascular activity, lymphatic activity, hormonal dysfunction and other “functional abnormalities”. Thermography is non-invasive, painless, without radiation and FDA approved.

Thermography is especially appropriate for younger women between 30 & 50 whose denser breast tissue makes it more difficult for mammography to pick up suspicious lesions.
