Step One

Medical Thermography Scan

How Does Thermography Work?

Modern Thermologists use digital cameras that record infrared radiation emitted by the human body and convert them into temperature readings and plot them on a computer screen.  Thermologist’s are then able to identify areas of hot and cold in relation to the opposite side of the body.  Areas with decreased blood flow will have colder temperature readings and areas of increased blood flow will have warmer temperature readings.

Breast tumors and some other tumors are able to found on thermal imaging through the process known as Angioneogenesis, the formation of new blood vessel that supply nutrients to a tumor.  This asymmetric increase in blood flow creates an increase in temperature that can be picked up by medical thermal cameras. Many times this blood supply increases over time as a tumor grows and is an important part of baseline studies and the ability for them to identify a tumor at the earliest possible moment.


What Can Thermography Detect?

Thermography picks up skin surface temperatures on the human body that can be used for analysis by a trained thermologist.  Any disease process that emits heat or decreases circulation can possibly be detected through infrared thermal imaging.  The FDA has cleared the following as adjunctive screening methods with thermography:

  • Breast Cancer
  • Thyroid Pathology
  • Cerebrovascular Health
  • Neuro-muscular Pathology

Other promising and emerging areas deserving consideration include:

  • Infection
  • Fibrocystic breast disease
  • Vascular disease
  • Lymphatic stagnation
  • Breast Health
  • Skin Cancer
  • Testicular Cancer

Before and After Example

This is why I brought in Medical Thermography Scanning into my practice. To clearly see the benefits of the Body In Balance Program. After five weekly sessions we can clearly see the tissue temperature changes in my client's body. Once we have your 18-image scan of the torso, breast, and head. After your doctor's findings 15-minunte call we can create a pinpointed therapy plan of the Lymphatic Balance, Nervous System Regulation sessions and apparel Somatic & Posture training for several sessions. Then we will run a follow-up body specific or the same 18-image scan to verify improvements and again pinpoint therapy after your follow-up findings call.

What to Expect

At your appointment, you will be asked to disrobe behind a privacy curtain where you will stand in front of the thermographic camera. Thermography can only be utilized without clothing, as clothing prevents temperature readings of the skin’s surface. I make every effort to respect your privacy and comfort with the use of privacy screens.

Once positioned behind the camera, you will undergo an acclimation process. This involves relaxing while your body acclimates to room temperature. This process takes 10-15 minutes. This guarantees that the temperature readings are accurate and not affected by factors such as tight bra straps, clothing, outside weather, and other factors that cause temporary increase or decease in surface temperature.

Once acclimated, the technician will ask you to move in certain positions in front of the thermal camera in order to get the specific 18 images. That way, they can be assessed from every angle allowing temperature measurements to be taken in any location necessary. This process will only take a few minutes after which you will start your Lymphatic Balance Session for the remainder of the session time.

 I am not qualified to read your thermal images or give you any information or advice regarding them. You will not get your results at the time of the thermography appointment as the images taken by the technician will need to be analyzed and interpreted by physicians.

Step Two

Receiving your Thermography Report and having your physician 15-minute findings call.

At your follow-up session about two weeks later, together we will create the perfect plan to meet your goals.   This will give you time to receive, review, and have your findings call. 

All Thermography reports are read and interpreted by PACT Certified Interpreters. Medical Thermography science is a non-regulated industry. PACT certified ensures that our doctors adhere to the latest protocols established by this non-profit organization. Each report is viewed by 3 sets of eyes for the most accurate reports.


Step Three & Four

Start your weekly or biweekly sessions to start balancing the body or the nervous system through Lymphatic Balance Sessions, Nervous System Regulation Sessions, Somatic Movements, and Posture Training. 

Rescanning either the body-specific area or the 18 images and scheduling your physician’s 15-minute follow-up findings call.
