Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging

Otherwise known as "Thermography",
this radiation free screening method is a valuable tool in preventive medicine. The Chiropractic Healing and Wellness Center serves as an on-site location for thermal diagnostic screening through Three Rivers Thermography.

What is infrared imaging?

Digital infrared thermal imaging is a totally non-invasive clinical imaging procedure for detecting and monitoring a number of diseases and physical injuries, by showing the thermal abnormalities present in the body.

It is used as an aid for diagnosis and prognosis, as well as monitoring therapy progress, for conditions and injuries, including:

  • Back Injuries
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Breast Disease
  • Sinus Infection
  • Dental and TMJ
  • Digestive Disorders
  • Arthritis
  • Thyroid Dysfunction
  • Stroke Screening
  • Disc Disease
  • Nerve Damage
  • Vascular Disease

Images or 'Thermograms' can be taken of the whole body or areas being investigated. The digitized images are stored on a computer and are sent electronically to a Thermologist (certified doctor) for interpretation and reporting our report is send directly to you.

What is Breast Thermography?

Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (Thermography) is a 30 minute non invasive test of physiology. It is a valuable procedure for alerting your doctor to changes that can indicate early stage breast disease.

Thermography detects the subtle physiologic changes that accompany breast pathology, whether it is fibrocystic disease, an infection or vascular disease. Your doctor can then plan accordingly and lay out a careful program to further diagnose and/or MONITOR you during and after any treatment.

Who can benefit from Thermal Imaging?

All women and men can benefit from thermal imaging. However, breast screening is especially beneficial for younger women (30 – 50) whose denser breast tissue makes it more difficult for mammography to be effective. Also for women of all ages who, for many reasons, are unable to undergo routine mammography. This test can provide a 'clinical marker' to the doctor or mammographer that a specific area of the breast needs particularly close examination.

It takes years for a tumor to grow, thus the earliest possible indication of abnormality is needed to allow for the earliest possible treatment and intervention.
