Thermography Defined - Hypothyroidism
Thermography is a form
of medical imaging capable of obtaining detailed infrared images of
the human body. We are now in the age of incredible, detailed,
digital imaging and high resolution, which enables thermography to
shine. It is an accurate means (approved by the FDA) of providing
you with information of a preventative nature. It evaluates tissue
function and physiology looking for thermal (heat) abnormalities.
Medical infrared imaging is used to evaluate whole body health issues
and has the added advantage of being able to alert women of breast
abnormalities up to 10 years before they manifest. See "Conditions
Detected with Infrared Full Body Scanning" and "Hypothyroidism".
FULL BODY IMAGING It Can Be Your Early Warning System
What Does It Have to Offer?
The key to maintaining your health is prevention. It is far easier to care for the first indications that something is wrong than to try and fix a problem that has caused significant damage.
Unlike other forms of imaging that detect structural changes such as a tumor or broken bone, infrared imaging looks at the body's subtle chemical and nervous system signals. These neurochemical signals may be sent far in advance of significant damage to the body, warning you of a possible health problem that may be years in advance of symptoms.
With this information in hand, you and your health care provider can outline a method for treating a current problem or possibly preventing future problems before they cause irreversible damage.
The whole procedure takes about 1 hour for a full-body exam. You will be mailed a complete written report. Copies may also be sent to your health care providers at your request.
What Makes Infrared Imaging Different From Other Tests?
The greatest difference lies in the type of information you get from different forms of imaging. For example, CT, MRI and EBT excel at looking for tumors in the body. If no tumor is found, does this mean you are in good health? The vast majority of health problems that affect us, and decrease our life span, do not come in the form of tumors. Many health problems that slowly evolve and rob you of your quality of life cannot be detected by CT, MRI or EBT. Infrared imaging provides a different way of examining the body.
Who Benefits From a Full Body Scan?
Everyone, especially health conscious patients who prefer to head off possible health problems before it's too late. Infrared imaging may also give your doctor the information you need to get nearer the cause of a current problem that is not responding well to treatment. By providing an extremely early warning, or notifying you of a current problem that is going undetected, infrared body scanning has the ability to help you in preventing health problems that stop you from enjoying life.
Many patients are also confused with regard to their condition. For example, patients with chronic pain who have had treatment with little or no relief may have been treated for the wrong condition. Infrared imaging has helped many patients get to the cause of their condition so that proper treatment can be rendered.
It can take many years for a condition to develop. Medical infrared thermography may be able to warn you of a problem years in advance of other tests.
Early Detection for Your Family
Infrared imaging aids in the early detection and prevention of disease. Your doctor may use this procedure as part of your yearly physical exam or to investigate a problem you may be experiencing. If your doctor is not currently using infrared imaging, you are free to call for an appointment without a referral. Infrared imaging may be exactly what the doctor ordered when it comes to watching your health over time or determining the cause of a current problem.
“For years I suffered from excessive heat and pain in my feet. I went in to Auburn Thermography for a breast scan and decided to have a full body scan. I learned of my circulation problems and finally understood the cause of the symptoms in my feet. I was also relieved to know that my breast exam was normal. I am grateful for the professional help I received from Auburn Thermography and would highly recommend them,” …Penny Tyler

"Thermography gave me a great alternative for monitoring breast health. I truly believe that prevention is "the cure", and thermograms can provide much earlier indicators than mammograms, with none of the risks or discomfort.
