Virginia Thermography is accredited by the ACCT (American College of Clinical Thermology) and provides thermal imaging services to the public on both a self-referral and physician referral basis. Imaging exams are conducted by certified thermography technicians (ACCT).
All reports are provided by MD physicians who are board certified thermologists.What is Thermography?
Thermography, also known as digital infrared thermal imaging (DITI), is a painless, non-invasive, state of the art clinical imaging test conducted without any exposure to radiation.
The advantages of DITI are:
- No radiation
- No contact with the body
- FDA registered
Thermography can be used for any region of the body where there is pain, inflammation or other physiological problems. It helps to find the cause of these types of problems. A full body scan can also be done. Thermography can be useful in detecting many conditions.
Thermography testing also offers the opportunity for earlier detection of breast disease than has been possible through breast examination, doctor examination, or mammography alone. DITI is able to detect the subtle physiological changes that accompany breast pathology, whether it is cancer, fibrocystic disease, an infection, or vascular disease.
Thermography is a non-invasive diagnostic technique that converts infrared radiation emitted from the skin surface into electrical impulses that are visualized in color. The spectrum of colors indicate an increase or decrease in the amount of infrared radiation being emitted from the body surface. Medical Thermography can graphically display and record the subjective feeling of pain by objectively displaying the changes in skin surface temperature that are produced by pain states. Medical Thermography’s major clinical value is in its high sensitivity to pathology in the vascular, muscular, neural and skeletal systems and as such can contribute to a diagnosis by the clinician.
