Thermography in Coralville Iowa

 

Thermography is a radiation free, state of the art screening technology that uses heat detection to measure temperature differences in the body.

What the camera is actually measuring is the surface temperature of your skin. Most pathological processes (meaning disease) will show a form of increased heat in the body. On the flip side, most neurological processes will show excessive cold.

 

 

 

How does thermography actually work?

Thermography is indicating what is happening from a metabolic perspective instead of an anatomical perspective. Picture it like this:  If you saw a volcano from a satellite image like the one below, you might think there is nothing to be worried about because it looks dormant. However, you have no idea what is happening below the surface. If you had looked at an infrared image of that volcano, you would possible see heat patterns below the surface indicating suspicious activity.

  

Thermography allows doctors to detect thermal abnormalities in the body which can indicate early onset of disease. Since these thermal abnormalities show before symptoms begin to present, doctors are able to intervene sooner. Thermography can indicate early signs of:

  • Thyroid Disease
  • Breast Disease (cancer, fibrocystic breasts or too much estrogen)
  • Reduced heart function
  • Carotid artery inflammation
  • Stroke risk
  • Melanoma
  • Liver inflammation
  • Early stage diabetes
  • Digestive Distress
  • Oral inflammation

Monitoring Breast Health

Breast disease can be indicated by looking for areas of excessive or increasing heat that may indicate areas of an increase in blood vessels. Thermography has been used since 1956 for breast cancer detection and was approved by the FDA in 1982 as an adjunctive procedure for breast cancer screening.

Connie’s Story

“In 2007, my thermogram indicated a possible pathology in the right breast between 9 and 12 o’clock.  I was diagnosed in February 2012 with cancer exactly where the thermogram revealed it to be all those years ago.”

 

  • 2007 – thermography indicated suspicious activity
  • 2009 – mammogram was negative
  • 2011 – doctor’s physical exam was negative  – clean bill of health
  • 2012 – doctor’s physical exam revealed a mass in the same area indicated on the thermogram in 2007.

Connie ended up having 31 lymph nodes removed, 16 of which had cancer.
