What is exactly Clinical thermography?

Every human being has a unique heat patterns, just like a fingerprint.
Clinical thermography is capable of different heat patterns in image capture and follow.
It not only makes i
nflammation visible in blood vessels, but also in the lymphatic vessels, muscles, joints and organs. 

Physiological changes are visible, even when one still has no idea that something is going on.

 

Who will score the biggest advantage at Clinical thermography?

  1. Every woman, because on the 1 in 8 women has the chance to develop a breast disease 
    a higher risk
    ^ women with breast cancer or breast cancer gene family history
    ^ women with fibrocystic breast during high estrogen levels
    ^ women under 45 who have had no children or had their first child after the age of 30
    ^ women in which the mammography examination is not offered because of the density of breast tissue at a young age.
  2. the medical professional who wants to do therapy control with his client.
    after heart attack, inflammatory diseases, pain syndromes etc
  3. Top sport practitioners and their professional staff to recognize more easily an injury, to follow the recovery therapy and routine exercise can be customized.

 

Why is clinical thermography unique?

Clinical thermography shall not preclude men or women regardless of age, size of the breasts, mastectomy,  breast implants and therapy or medication.
The infra-red camera uses no radiation and forms no physical tax, thereby Medical Thermography can be applied during chemo, hormone treatment, and breastfeeding or pregnancy.
Signs of a breast lump development in the beginning is too slight to be felt or to be notices by mammography. 
Clinical thermography brings the physiological change in to an image which can be followed and for specific survey to be referred. 

 

The 4 biggest Reasons for every women

  1.  ​Can Provide the Earliest Possible Warning
    Wouldn’t it be great if there is a test as a First warning signal?
    Angiogenesis, or the formation of new blood vessels, is such a warning signal.  

     
  2. Is a risk assessment tool based on personal physiology
    Do I personally risk to develop a breast disease?

    Women with a family history have a greater risk.
    However 75% of all women who have to deal with breast cancer have no family history of this disease. When there is an abnormal thermogram, the future risk of developing breast disease with 10 x higher than when there is a family history.
    Thermography has the ability of evaluate a future risk. This thermographic marker image give the first warning signal for women. Along with the accompanying doctor may means a regular check looks if the treatment plan is successful.

     
  3. Has a large role in prevention of breast diseases
    Are there temperature signals of hormone effects in the breast?

    An important risk factor for the development of breast diseases is the possible endocrine imbalance in the chest or in the rest of the body.
    Reduced exposure to this hormone effects is an important measure in maintaining breast health. Certain thermal markers suggest this hormone effect in the chest. This may be the first signal that alerts you and you doctor.
    Once your doctor has tested and confirmed the cause of this imbalance, your treatment can start. In this way medical thermography has an important role in the prevention of breast cancer. 
  4. Non – invasive sensitive imaging for young women
    I am not eligible for regular research, but are my breast healthy?
    Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in this age Group.
    15% of all breast diseases starts in women under 45 years. Cancer of the breast in young women is usually very aggressive which makes the women have less chance of survival.
    Medical breast thermography offers younger women a valuable image that they can add to their regular breast health control. 

     

In Summary:
Clinical Thermography is used to monitor prevention:

  • breast health.
    Regardless of the size of the breast, age, implants, amputation, chemotherapy, pregnancy and breast cancer gene, or breast-feeding.
  • Health heart and blood vessels.
    At stagnation, narrowing, inflammation or other abnormality of the blood vessels.
  • Neuro-muscular health nerve irritation and the interaction on the body region concerned.
  • Thyroid disease.
  • Pains and loss of function such as carpal tunnel syndrome, complex regional pain syndrome, burning or hypothermia
  • During Top sports, during recovery and rehabilitation, stimulate progressive health in top sport.

 

Is Clinical Thermography safe?

  • We work with a clinical certified (FDA and CE) infra-red camera that is suitable for medical purposes explains. The camera captures the radiated body heat and translated it into digital thermal imaging in which the body is not touched. The research is painless, without radiation and 100% secure.
  • Via secure internet the Thermographic research  is offered to relevant doctor
  • The doctor explains the thermographic research report by telephone, with you
     

Specification Medical Camera

Under the Umbrella of the FDA broadest and safest indications for use medical infra-red camera's, including adjunctive diagnostic screening for detection of  breast-cancer and other uses such as: peripheral vascular diseases, neuromusculo skeletal disorders, extracranial cerebral and facial vascular disease, thyroid gland abnormalities and various other neoplastic, metabolic and inflammatory conditions.

Thermographic research guidelines

IACT: International academy certified thermographers http://iactthermography.org/standards_medical.html
AAT: American academy of Thermology: http://aathermology.org/organization/guidelines

In 1982, the first text was published with scientific techniques and protocols regarding medical thermography by Barbara A. Britt.

This work provided specific standards for scientific reproducibility and controlled thermography. Also, in 1982 the Bureau of Medical
Devices, Federal Drug Administration (FDA) classified medical teletherm-ography as a Category II device limiting its use to
conditions where variations of skin temperatures might occur. The FDA suggests the following applications:
1. Abnormalities of the female breast.
2. Peripheral vascular disease.
3. Musculoskeletal disorders.
4. Extracranial cerebral vascular disease.
5. Abnormalities of the thyroid gland.
6. Various neoplastic and inflammatory conditions.
