Q: "What is Thermography?"

A: A cutting edge technology that has been available throughout the United States for 30 years is now available in Pittsburgh! Digital infrared thermal imaging also known as Thermography is a non-invasive test of our bodies' physiology. In short - Thermography studies how our body is functioning. Unlike standard medical imaging tools Thermography doesn't look at structure in the body i.e., lumps, breaks, etc. Instead Thermography analyzes temperature and vascular patterns that provide an early indication of dysfunction and a unique look at how your body is functioning overall. Not only does Thermography provide medical analysis outside of other diagnostic tests but also is, radiation-free, painless, and requires NO contact with the body.

The detection of dysfunction, diseases, and physical injury is achieved by displaying thermal abnormalities and patterns present in the body. The visual image that is created from a Thermography screening is a Thermogram. Thermograms are used to evaluate, and monitor thermal abnormalities present in a number of diseases and physical injuries. All Thermograms are interpreted by Medical Doctors (M.D.'s) and should be further evaluated by a medical professional that can then plan accordingly and layout a program to further diagnose and monitor your health.

Making Thermography is a valuable procedure for alerting your doctor to changes that can indicate early stage dysfunction or disease.

Thermography screenings can be utilized for any area of the body but has particular sensitivity to aiding in the detection of subtle physiologic changes that accompany breast pathology, whether it is, fibrocystic disease, an infection, or a vascular disease.
