What is Thermal Imaging

Thermography is also known as Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging is an extremely accurate heat sensitive imaging device that uses definitive variation of colors to represent actual temperature variations for that specific region of the body. The primary view held by thermographers and doctors is that our bodies should have correspond about thermaling heat patterns for both sides of the body mid line on both sides. A standard deviation that is considered significant is a variation of 0.3 C degree or greater.

Understanding How We Find Your Health Status

A Proven Science

In fetal development, the skin, brain, and spinal cord originate from the same cellular tissue. Skin temperature control is directly “hotwired” to the brain and spinal cord so as to constantly regulate the body core temperature and thus maintain the health of the entire system.

The skin temperature is regulated by that part of the brain that also controls the blood flow to every muscle, organ, and gland.

Any changes in the internal issues and environment of the body tend to produce a reflexive and corresponding change in skin temperatures that show very graphically in a thermographic image. Heat imaging gives visual points of reference regarding the body’s ability to work correctly. We thus can see the functional, physiological, and biological pattern of the blood flow within the body. Heat patterns, either higher or lower, tend to take on the color patterns of that part of a body being affected by an outside influence that is different from the norm.



FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What are the​ benefits of Thermal Imaging?

Thermography is a non-invasive Adjunctive diagnostic tool with scientifically valid, reproducible results.

Thermography is an FDA approved adjunctive diagnostic device .

Thermography can distinguish dysfunction .

Thermography can be trusted especially when read by a highly trained reading doctor who is board certified in 

interpreting thermal images

Does insurance cover thermal imaging?

All insurance carriers are different. Currently Total Thermal Imaging does not accept insurance, however we provide you with a Superbill for you to submit to your insurance company.

HSA or FSA accounts are accepted as a viable method for paying for your scan.


Why get tested with thermal imaging?

Thermal imaging has been an available medical test for more than 50 years, and its non-medical applications pre-date that by a decade.

Despite controversy in its early days, this tool has withstood the test of time and has become the mainstay in many diagnostic endeavors. The technology in modern day thermography as well as properly training technicians has improved tremendously over the years.

With the increasing technological advances of thermal imaging cameras and the newest and best software available

It locates dysfunction with precision going right to the source of heat increased blood supply and enables your doctor to develop a more exact treatment plan.


How does thermal imaging work?

Thermography registers skin-surface temperature from 112 different points on the body.

Thermography displays an image yielding a scan of 25 organs, tissues, or systems and their function.

While X-rays give a structural view, thermography gives us a functional perspective based on physiology and cold stress response.

By computer analysis of the skin temperature patterns, the doctor gains a direct index of the metabolic activity in various parts of the body.

The thermography scan will also show inflamed, degenerated, or overactive organ or tissue processes.


Who should be tested with thermal imaging?

It is a safe procedure for people of all ages. Thermography offers reproducible and scientifically valid information that can be crucial to the development and tracking of a successful treatment strategy with your doctor.
