Regular diagnostic tools like X-rays, CT Scans, Ultrasound are all tests of “anatomy” and are useful measurements of the structure of your body. But suppose you suffer pain that cannot be explained by these studies.
Perhaps you have pain in the neck, jaw ache or a lower back problem that is unexplained, or you were in an automobile accident but your X-rays were “normal”.
Often the use of thermal imaging as an initial diagnostic tool can result in considerable financial savings by avoiding the need for more expensive and invasive investigation.
Digital infrared thermal imaging is the only method available for visualisation of pain and pathology anywhere in the body. When a person is in pain, there are thermal pattern changes that take place in the skin related to activity in the autonomic nervous system.
Thermal imaging can help you plan for better breast health by establishing a baseline early on of your normal thermal patterns so that any changes, no matter how subtle can be readily and easily detected years before self breast examination, physician breast examination and mammography alone. This early detection saves lives and allows you and your physician to work out the best treatment plan for you.
Preventative medicine is not limited to breast disease alone though. Routine baseline imaging can also screen for artery inflammation, skin cancer, disc disease, stroke and digestive disorders.
