MEDICAL THERMOGRAPHY & THERMOLOGYAt Doctors Studio we use Medical Thermography to help us identify areas of inflammation and restriction that may be contributing to dysfunction.
The sooner you identify inflammation, the earlier and easier it is to turn things around and support your health and wellness. Medical thermography is an amazing physical examination tool.” ~ Studio Team
At Doctors Studio we use Medical Thermography to help us identify areas of inflammation and restriction that may be contributing to the dysfunction.
Medical Thermography is an amazing tool when used in conjunction with many other diagnostic strategies.
The Studio Team is happy to have another way to look deeply into the body for answers that will help build the most effective treatment plan.
The Doctors Studio Mantra…. FIND IT AND FIX IT BEFORE IT BECOMES PROBLEMATIC!
Thermography identifies areas of inflammation and asymmetry of tissue function LONG before there is a change in structure. It is easy, painless, accurate, reliable, and involves no radiation. Every part of the body can be scanned regularly for changes and early detection of inflammation.
Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI or Thermography) is used for detecting muscular/skeletal, vascular, and nervous system irregularities, compensatory issues, stroke and inflammation screening, monitoring injury or chronic disease, and much more.
Medical thermography quickly identifies areas of tissue restriction, inflammation, and cellular function differential. It is important to be able to identify asymmetry of the tissue function as a physical examination tool for additional insight.
The FDA has not approved the use of Thermography to diagnose cancer. In fact, cancer can only be definitively diagnosed when a physical tissue sample is obtained. There is no form of imaging that can diagnose cancer.
The medical literature is yet to be complete when it comes to the utility of Medical Thermography.
The technological innovations over the past decades have extensively enhanced the existing methods of diagnosis while also allowing for newer systems to be implemented in a clinical setting. One of those advancements that are digital infrared thermal imaging. It can be used to detect illnesses where skin temperature can reflect the presence of inflammation in underlying tissues or where blood flow fluctuates due to a clinical abnormality.
Thermography is the measurement of temperature variations at the body surface. As with the oral thermometer that has been used for many years, changes in temperature indicate disease processes. Finely tuned technology can find abnormalities in human wellness long before the body’s sensory organs can identify them. This is true for breast cancer; thyroid dysfunction; inflammation leading to cancer, heart disease, and other diseases.
There are over 800 articles in peer-reviewed journals referencing the utility of medical thermography to provide another helpful examination biomarker. These articles include discussion regarding heart disease, dental thermography, diabetes, thyroid dysfunction, cerebrovascular screening with thermography, and many more applications. Great work is being done in Brazil at the Sao Paulo Medical School by Dr. Marcos Brioschi and others.
The future is here with Medical Thermography.
FULL BODY THERMOGRAPHY
Thermography is a non-invasive clinical imaging procedure that illustrates heat patterns in the body. The infrared thermal images are evaluated for abnormalities that may be signs of disease. Inflammation is a precursor to many diseases such as cancer, arthritis, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Identifying inflammation on thermography raises awareness and may prompt the recommendation of further testing and nutritional and lifestyle intervention. Thermography may be used to monitor progress once the disease is ruled out.
The infrared scan measures the internal temperature of different parts of your body. Without harmful radiation, this process uses an imaging camera to measure temperature differences in your body. Early detection of inflammation may help you prevent many negative health conditions from developing. Annual thermograms allow you to map changes in the body’s heat patterns over time which can alert you to any changes that might indicate disease.
Early detection of inflammation and early intervention can help to prevent disease.
- It is a noninvasive, noncontact procedure that does not involve compressing the breast.
- Identify areas of inflammation better than other imaging devices.
- It does not involve exposure to radiation, and people can use it safely over time.
- Locate areas for musculoskeletal injections.
- Illustrate tissue function asymmetry.
- It can detect inflammatory changes in breasts with dense tissue and implants.
- Hormonal and menstrual changes do not affect results.
- Medical Thermography is ideal for Preventive Medicine.
- Safe for men, women, and children.
*Please note that this technology can only alert a person to changes that may need further investigation. Early detection of cellular changes may provide time and the opportunity to intervene to avoid diseases like cancer.
We promise to use all means available to properly diagnose and understand the unique challenges you are facing. The goal is always in favor of repair and restoration of full natural function.
You can not fix a problem you don’t understand. Advanced diagnostics if often necessary to get at the root cause. Once the root cause is identified, the solution becomes possible.
HEAD & NECK THERMOGRAPHY
Thermography can aid in the assessment of various dysfunctions, diseases, and other concerns in the head and neck region to include:
- Sinus and Facial Inflammation
- Oral Inflammation
- Thyroid inflammation
- Cerebrovascular Inflammation
- Inflammatory Trigger Points
Thermography uses a type of infrared technology that detects and records temperature changes on the surface of the skin. A thermal infrared camera takes a picture of the areas of different temperatures in the breasts. The camera displays these patterns as a sort of heat map.
Thermography can detect inflammation in the breast tissue. These show up on the infrared image as areas with a higher skin temperature.
