Thermography

What makes infrared imaging different from other tests?

 

The greatest difference lies in the type of information you get. For example, CT, MRI, and EBT look into the body for structural changes such as tumors. If no tumor is found, does this mean you’re in good health?

The majority of health problems that affect us do not come in the form of tumors. Many of the health problems that slowly evolve and rob you of your quality of life may not be detected by other imaging procedures. Infrared imaging provides a different way of examining the body.

By imaging physiology rather than structure, infrared imaging is unique in that it looks at how the body is functioning. Infrared imaging is an additional procedure that your doctor may use along with other tests to evaluate your health. Keep in mind that like other imaging procedures, infrared imaging does not provide a diagnosis. Only your doctor can provide you with a diagnosis.
