An Introduction to Thermography
Thermography is the use and study of thermograms (infrared images) for detecting and measuring variations of heat emitted from the body's surface. This non-invasive screening procedure can be used to detect inflammation, pathology, thermal abnormalities and in some cases, disease within the body. Thermography can be utilized as a proactive whole-body approach to wellness or used for areas of concern that may require further investigation and testing.
A thermogram is an infrared image produced by a highly sensitive camera that records temperature changes within the body. Thermograms do not expose the body to radiation or involve any contact or compression. A thermogram displays the physiological change (the body's function) versus a mammogram, x-ray, ultrasound or MRI which measure anatomical change (the body's structure).
