Picture1Most of our diseases start with an inflammation. Discover if you have inflammation before it becomes a major problem.Thermal imaging or Thermography creates a digital map of your body that illustrates heat patterns, patterns that may detect some condition or abnormality. It does not only test the breast area but also the whole body, including your teeth.

It uses a scanning-type infrared device that measures your body surface temperature, presenting the information as a digitized image.

What can Thermography detect?

Since your body is normally thermally symmetrical, thermal asymmetries can indicate problems, such as:

  • Arthritis: Thermography might help you detect early signs of arthritis.
  • Sinus Issues & Headaches: Significant heat in your forehead or sinus region could be revealedPicture10 on a thermal scan.
  • Digestive Disorders: Irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis and Crohn’s disease are often visible with thermography
  • Head
  • Breast
  • Neck
  • chest
  • Lymph
  • Sinus
  • Pancreas
  • Gallbladder
  • Kidney
  • Stomach
  • Liver
  • Teeth
  • Spinal column
  • Thyroid

AlphaSight 9000 ™ Whole body Thermometry System

How does Thermography work?

Infrared measurements of skin temperature from 90-120 body points on the body are taken before and after exposure to a cool-ambient room temperature. After 10 minutes of exposure to cool temperatures, the same points on the body are re-measured to see if there are any changes. The AlphaSight measures the difference between the two temperatures and compares the data to a database of healthy patients. It reveals deviations that identify patterns that are reflected in easy to understand charts and reports.

Gradings for Breast Dysfunction

How does Thermography differ from Mammography?

Mammograms look at anatomical changes in the breast, as they detect masses or lumps in the breast tissue. On the other hand, Thermograms look at vascular changes in the breast, as they detect blood flow patterns, inflammation and asymmetries.

Who should have this test?

Anyone interested in maintaining health. This test can be done on men, women & children, age 8-96

Does the devise emit harmful radiation?

No, it uses a non-invasive infra red camera and sensor to detect inflammations.

Will my insurance cover this?

At this moment not many insurance companies are covering this procedure. Medicare is not covering the procedure.

How much does it cost?

The price for the test $260 for men and children and $285 for women. This does include a 6 page doctors report.
