How is Thermography done?

Thermal Imaging is produced by an infrared camera.  This camera carefully scans the surface temperature of the body.  The digitized image can then be used to identify precise temperature patterns which differentiate hot and cold.

Research shows that these patterns may reveal underlying physiological conditions and signs of disease.  A healthy body will present symmetrical temperature patterns when comparing one side of the body to the other side.  Asymmetrical images may indicate the need for further clinical findings.

Be Well,
