What is Thermal Scanning and how can it help and protect you?
We all know that many diagnostic procedures can do more harm than good. So it is refreshing to find an investigatory procedure that has the unique ability to be able to pick up potential problems in the body at very early stages and is completely harmless and non-invasive – The Thermal Body Scan. It is well documented in all fields of medicine that early detection leads to the best outcome and thermography enables earlier intervention thereby giving people more options to look after their health.
How does it work?
A non-contact digital infrared camera captures and records temperature variations on the skin. While it doesn’t diagnose cancer, it can detect increased blood supply (as found in cancers) called angiogenesis. It is well documented in all fields of medicine, that the earliest detection leads to the best outcome.
Mammography, MRI and X-ray detect anatomical changes (structure), but will miss such things as active inflammation, or increased blood supply. Thermography can detect early danger signs in the body years before other devices.
The infrared camera photographs the amount of heat on the body’s surface, which is then translated into a digital image seen immediately on a specialised computer programme. These images are sent to a worldwide team of medical doctors, specifically trained in thermography (thermologists). They interpret the scan and make suggestions as to what the patient should do, if there are any highlighted problems.
It is an easy procedure (like having your picture taken) with a fast turnaround of results. People find thermal scanning very useful in terms of discovering and confirming areas of concern and for taking forwards to further investigations/treatments. It is not invasive, there is no radiation, injections or dyes going into the system.
Thermography can be used on both women and men of all ages, including pregnant women.
