What Thermal Imagery Can Do
Medical Thermograpy can help avoid the need for more expensive investigations resulting in reducing the cost of health care.
Medical Thermography graphically interprets the subjective feeling of pain by objectively displaying the differences in skin surface temperature that are present with pain states.
Medical Thermography can show a combined effect of the autonomic nervous system and the vascular system, down to capillary dysfunctions. The effects of these changes show as asymmetries in temperature distribution on the surface of the body.
Medical Thermography displays the thermal abnormalities present in a number of diseases and physical problems. It is used as an aid in the follow up and rehabilitation of specific complaints or injuries. Medical Thermography has clinical applications in rheumatology, neurology, physiotherapy, sports medicine, oncology, pediatrics, orthopedics, and even veterinary medicine.
Medical Thermography fills the void in clinical diagnosis
X-ray, CT Ultrasound, MRI and Mammography are anatomical assessments.
Electromyogram is a test of motor physiology.
Thermography has the unique ability to show physiological change and metabolic processes. It is especially useful as a complementary procedure to other diagnostic modalities.
Medical Thermography is non-invasive which sets it apart from other technologies. It is a highly sensitive and reliable means of graphically mapping skin surface temperature. The images look like a colored topographical map. Medical Thermography can assess, evaluate, monitor and document a large number of injuries and conditions, including soft tissue injuries and sensory/autonomic nerve fiber dysfunction.
