In this post, we’ll give you a detailed summary of the advantages of Thermography. As a result, we hope this helps you determine if thermography is a good fit for you.

At Insight Thermography of Oklahoma, we provide a range of Thermography scans, each designed to help you see what is going on inside your body.

What exactly is Thermography?

Thermography is a type of thermal imaging using an infrared camera to detect specific heat patterns and blood flow in your body. Also known as Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging, or DITI, thermal imaging technology is well-established. In fact, it’s been around a considerable amount of time.

Origins of Thermography

So, is thermography something new? 

Is that why I’m just now learning about it?

Actually, no. In other words, thermography isn’t new

Certainly, the technology has advanced significantly over the years, but even before infrared cameras existed—WAY before then—Hippocrates himself, the founder of modern medicine, was employing the idea of the difference in skin surface temperature indicating underlying pathologies.

“In whatever part of the body excess of heat or cold is felt, the disease is there to be discovered.”

– Hippocrates

What is Thermography used for?

Chiefly, thermography identifies areas of inflammation, create a baseline image, and helps identify a potential disease, injury, condition, or infection in a person’s body. To meet your individual needs, we offer three different types of thermal imaging scans to choose from: full body, health study, or breast study. While one scan may fit your situation better than another, each option provides you with specific information about your health in the target area.

The Advantages of Thermography

Advantages of Thermography

Thermography is a comfortable, non-invasive procedure

One of the most comforting aspects of getting a thermogram is that it is completely non-invasive. In fact, it requires no physical contact at all.

Best of all, there is no discomfort. That’s because your comfort is our top priority.

Advantages of Thermography

Thermography is 100% safe, with no radiation

Unlike other types of medical imaging technologies, thermography is 100% radiation free.

Advantages of Thermography

Thermography can detect inflammation in the body

Inflammation in the body typically signals your immune system working to fight off an illness or injury. It’s also one of the first signs of a chronic health condition or degenerative disease. And thermography can detect inflammation. This is because one of the biggest signals of inflammation is heat.

Early detection is critical.

Sometimes, the symptoms of inflammation are subtle or even silent.

Fortunately, thermography can detect even silent inflammation and help uncover any potential issues by pinpointing the areas of concern.

If inflammation is detected, we can help. Our thermographers and in house naturopathic doctor are happy to offer practical advice on lifestyle choices to reduce your inflammation. These choices and changes can potentially halt development or further advancement of a condition.

Advantages of Thermography

Thermography is used for both partial as well as fully-body scanning

Typically, with medical imaging, only a small area is scanned.

Sometimes, especially if an issue is undiagnosed, you depend on a medical professional to make an accurate assumption regarding the true source of your pain. However, with Thermography, you can choose from having a partial body or full body scan. We hope these options give you peace of mind.

Thermography is beneficial for the following concerns:

  • Breast health
  • Cardiovascular health
  • Musculoskeletal disorders
  • Allergies
  • Digestive disorders
  • Sinus, TMJ, and neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Lung health
  • Dental
  • Hormonal Imbalance
  • Diabetes
  • DVT
  • Generic Toxicity
  • Inflammation
  • Immunity and lymphatic system functioning
  • Visceral Health
  • And more!

Advantages of Thermography

Thermography is affordable and easily transferrable if you move

Conveniently, you can tailor your Thermography scanning to suit your specific needs- both physically and financially.

For instance, if you are only concerned with breast health at this time, our breast scans are available for $199.

If you want to book a full body thermography appointment, our full body scans are $550.

Additionally, our health study falls in between those two options, at a price of $399.

When you compare the cost of Thermography to other forms of medical imaging, it is incredibly cost-effective.

Following your appointment, you’ll receive a color copy of your images along with a written report by a trained medical professional.

We compare your future thermograms to these original baseline images. If you relocate, it’s easy to transfer your files to another thermography provider.

Advantages of Thermography

Thermography is accurate

Let’s take a look at the facts when it comes to thermography:

All bodies emit energy. Thermography allows us to look at your body’s thermal image– the energy your body emits as heat. No other medical imaging takes a picture like this.

Thermography senses heat, and interestingly, body heat is generally connected to activity. This helps to reveal specific biomarkers and indicators. These abnormalities in heat patterns may indicate underlying health issues or toxins present.

Advantages of Thermography

Thermography can help determine progression after injury or illness

If you sustain an injury or are diagnosed with a medical condition, thermography can help to assess your progress.

To begin with, it works as an excellent baseline informant. This baseline useful in determining improvements and progression.

As things change in your body, either with some form of treatment or lifestyle changes, the effect of these efforts should be apparent in future scans.

Additionally, something called pain syndrome can be the effect of an injury where chronic pain is present in one of your limbs. This is difficult to diagnose.

Thermography helps identify this form of chronic pain so that you can receive targeted treatment.
