We are pleased and honored to have Ms. Dale Thomas, Certified Clinical Thermographer, to offer thermography screenings here at our Easthampton office.

What is Thermography?

Thermography is a non-invasive digital infrared thermal imaging procedure for detecting and monitoring many diseases and physical injuries by showing thermal abnormalities anywhere in your body.

This FDA-registered procedure uses a highly sensitive camera and computer to take pictures of the heat patterns and blood flow in the body. It creates a digital map of a patient’s unique thermal signature, which can be watched over time. It can then detect the slightest changes in that digital map, which may indicate the onset of disease if left unattended.

Think of it as a health screening, another tool in your arsenal for better health. It neither diagnoses nor replaces any one diagnostic procedure. Rather, it should be used in conjunction with other procedures and devices to provide additional data, aiding practitioners in the creation of a well-informed diagnosis and treatment plan.

How does it help?

Especially good for women who want to screen for breast cancer in between mammograms, thermography has been instrumental in detecting cancers early. Earlier detection equals early intervention and better treatment options by your health care provider.

If you are a woman with denser or small breasts for whom mammography is difficult, or if you are a younger woman who embraces prevention and rejects the notion that breast cancer is inevitable, if you have implants or have had a mastectomy or chemo, thermography is for a safe, painless way to monitor your breast health without radiation.

Other uses:

  • To help determine cause of pain.
  • For the early detection of injury or disease.
  • To follow progress of healing and rehabilitation.
The test takes from 15-30 minutes. Patients should not have physical therapy or massage on the same day of scan, should not smoke for 2 hours before the test and should be clean of any lotions or liniments on the body.
