Digital Infrared Thermographic Imaging, or more commonly known as Thermography, is a non-invasive test using an infrared camera to measure and pinpoint abnormal thermal changes within the body. The camera gauges body tissue heat energy that is then reflected on a high-speed computer for imaging. Generally, problem areas show high temperatures due to increased blood flow and increased metabolic activity.
The recording of these thermal patterns of the body are used to aid in diagnosing and/or monitor inflammation, pain or illness in any part of the body. Unlike more familiar medical tests such as X-ray, mammogram or ultrasound, and MRI, which are tests of  anatomy or structure, Thermography is a test of physiology. Thermal changes are often the earliest sign of vascular disease, immune dysfunction, and systemic inflammation. To the individual, Thermography can help visualize pain and inflammation and give a red flag warning to areas of concern whether or not symptoms are actually present.
The scan is harmless, non-invasive, no radiation, economical, medically approved technology, and requires only a minimal amount of your time.
