Thermography - Thermal Imaging - How it Can Help You

- Thermography uses thermal imaging to detect changes in your body at any stage in the development from the first year through to when a tumor is dense enough to be seen with mammography or other diagnostic imaging tools.

Thermography uses thermal imaging to detect changes in your body at any stage in the development from the first year through to when a tumor is dense enough to be seen with mammography or other diagnostic imaging tools. Thermography recognizes an early change due to more blood flow at the site of cancer cells and/or inflammation and can lead to earlier diagnosis and better treatment options as well as the opportunity for patients and their healthcare practitioners to intervene at an early stage with preventative treatment.

The History of Thermography:

Thermography dates back to the 1800s with the invention of a thermo-electrical device which established that the temperature in inflamed regions of the body is higher than in normal areas. By 1972, the Department of Health, Education and Welfare announced that Thermography, as it had become known, was “beyond experimental” in several areas, including evaluation of the female breast.

In 1982, the Federal Drug Commission (FDA) approved medical thermography for use. Current modern systems, like the one we use, provide high speed, high resolution imaging coupled with state-of-the-art computerized digital technology. This results in clear, detailed images captured by certified technicians for qualified physicians to interpret.

Thermography is now recognized and valued as a highly refined science with standardized applications in Neurology, Vascular Medicine, Sports Medicine, Breast Health, and many other specialty areas.

Thermography vs Mammograms

Mammograms have been the diagnostic tool for breast cancer screening starting back to 1970. Guidelines have changed and according to the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force mammograms are recommended to women aged 50-74 every two years. But what about the women who are younger and are at more risk due to family history? And because your 75 years old does that mean that you’re not worth the trouble of a mammogram? What about breast cancer in men? We think all of these situations should be considered.

Thermography - Thermal Imaging - Graph showing Breast Cancer rates by age. According to the National Cancer Institute, Breast cancer is more common in older women. But the risk is 1 in 227 by the age of 30 and goes up to 1 in 28 by the time you reach the age of 60. In this graph it shows that the risk really starts as early as your 20’s and never really goes away as long as we are living, so why stop the current recommended mammogram screening process when we reach the age of 75?

This is where we have a choice to take our health and wellbeing into our own hands. Preventive screenings such as Theomgraphy and Ultrasound can be preformed without a doctor’s order. So whatever your reason is, age, family history or belief in preventive measures to live a full and healthy life, we believe it is your body and you should have a choice in your screenings.

The Benefits of Thermography

These are some reasons to consider thermography vs or in addition to a mammogram for breast imaging. But first, make sure that you are getting your Thermography Scan done by a knowledgeable and trained technician in a facility that is backed by a board-certified physician that can give you a detailed report of the findings of your images.

Breast health is something we can’t afford to ignore. Each year breast cancer continues to be a leading cause of death in women and breast cancer rates keep rising. So don’t wait for that mammography screening to be ordered by your doctor, come in now and get your breast or full body thermography scan. Saturday appointments are available.

What is the Difference Between 3d and 4d Ultrasounds?

First let's talk about the 3d ultrasound. As the sonographer is performing your ultrasound, they are saving images to print or save to a CD in jpeg format. Once your ultrasound session is finished, your images will be downloaded onto a CD so you can print from your computer or through a photo department in a store such as Costco or Walmart. You can also download them to your computer to share with friends and family on social media!

A 4d ultrasound is the movement or video part of the ultrasound. So if you choose a session that comes with a DVD, it is recorded live during your ultrasound session. That means that every movement your baby makes during your session, like yawn, a stretch, a thumbs up, a wave or summersault, all will be captured on your DVD for you to view over and over. And how fun would it be to show your child later in life the video of him or her in the womb!! Priceless!! Read more here.
