Most of our diseases start with an inflammation. Discover if you haveinflammation 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 revealed on a thermal scan.
- Digestive Disorders: Irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis and Crohn’s disease are often visible with thermography
- Spinal column

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.
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.
