Thermal Imaging Diagnostic

Thermal imaging systems see radiant energy emitted from the first 1/1000 of an inch of the surface of an object. In fact infrared energy is emitted by everything on the planet. Temperature is the number one form of measurement used in the process; this includes the human body. When you go to the doctor what is one of the first clinical tests performed? In most cases the nurse will take your temperature and blood pressure.  Infrared (IR) mechanical scanning technology using liquid nitrogen, thermoelectric or sterling coolers has been around for many years, being used regularly to assist in all forms of medical procedures.

Thirty years of clinical use and more than 6,000 reviewed studies in the medical world has established thermography as a safe and effective means to examine the human body. It is completely non-invasive, and as such does not require the use of radiation or other potentially harmful elements. Medical research has shown thermography to be a useful tool in research as well as being helpful in the diagnosis of Breast Cancer, Nervous System Disorders, Metabolic Disorders, Neck and Back Problems, Pain Syndromes, Arthritis, Vascular Disorders, and Soft Tissue Injuries among others.
