How Does Thermography Work?
At Innovative Health & Wellness Group, we offer thermography for your family. Whether you or your family members are working towards achieving optimal health or are suffering from any medical conditions, thermography can help.
Thermography is a process in which the temperature of the skin is measured by using a thermo-sensitive camera. Also known as DITI (Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging), this process is a non-invasive, trouble-free screening with no radiation and no contact with the body. This method creates a visual image or plan that explains your body temperature. We use the map, or thermogram, for various medical reasons. We use this technology to screen the upper body, full body, arms, hands, legs, feet, head, and neck.
What are the Different Uses of Thermography?
Thermography can be used for many purposes. It can be used to trace underlying reasons for pain or to trace early detection of a disease. It helps in finding any soft tissue injuries, unusual areas in need of more testing, and to keep a track of the progress of treatments. Some of the common applications of this process are in breast pathologies, nerve problems, and extra cranial vessel diseases. It is also successfully applied in diagnosing respiratory dysfunctions, digestive disorders, lymphatic issues, and nervous system issues.
What are the Benefits of Thermography?
Non-invasive procedure– Thermography is a process that does not require any contact with your body, so there is no discomfort.
No radiation – Unlike other imaging procedures, this process does not emit any radiation.
An additional diagnostic tool for treating many conditions – DITI or thermography serves as an additional tool for treating many conditions. It is sensitive to changes in your body, in the vascular and musculoskeletal systems.
Application in breast cancer screening – One of the best uses of thermography is that it is used in breast cancer screening. It is sensitive to subtle changes in breast tissue. For instance, it can detect the extra blood supply that may be feeding a small malignant tumor.
Helpful in sports-related injuries – Thermography is useful if you have sports-related issues. It is helpful if you have injuries including sprains, inflamed tendons, and pain.
At Innovative Health & Wellness Group, we employ thermography technology to look for areas of asymmetry in the body. And in case of a healthy body, the thermogram will be symmetrical. If any asymmetry is identified, the practitioner will come to know that the part of the body contains one or more problems.
