I See Your Pain

by Peter on February 27, 2010

Fever was the most common condition observed in early medical history. In the early days of Hippocrates, mud was used on the skin to observe fast drying over a tumorous swelling, thereby indicating the rise in temperature.

These days non-invasive imaging techniques are emerging into the forefront of medical diagnostics and treatment monitoring.

Medical thermal imaging is a non-invasive imaging procedure that helps in detecting diseases and physical injuries.

Every person has their own “thermal image” much like a fingerprint. Changes over time in your ‘fingerprint’, or differences from one side of your body to the other can indicate potential issues.

Some of the conditions and injuries that a thermal scan can help detect include:

  • back injures
  • arthritis
  • headache
  • nerve damage
  • unexplained pain
  • fibromyalgia
  • RSD
  • TMJ dysfunction
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • inflammatory pain
  • spain/strain
  • soft tissue injuries
  • cancers

Thermal scans can be taken of the whole body or just areas being investigated. The digitized images are stored on a computer and can be sent to your MD, specialist, or healthcare practitioner for further interpretation  and reporting.

Unlike most diagnostic tests, thermography:

  • is non-invasive
  • requires no contact with the body
  • uses no radiation
  • is completely painless

Standard region of interest scans take approximately 15 minutes while full body scans take approximately 30 minutes. Your report is normally completed within a week.
