Thermography Interpretation Services
Welcome to a group of dedicated professionals
What is thermography?
Thermography, or infrared imaging, entails the use of specialized cameras that are sensitive to the detection of electromagnetic energy (light) in the infrared wavelengths (heat). As such, these imagers serve as a remote sensing system; nothing touches or harms the object under investigation. When the camera’s detectors sense the incoming infrared heat an electrical signal is produced that generates a visible image display.
Medical infrared imaging (MIR) entails the use of high-resolution infrared cameras and sophisticated computer processing to produce a topographic heat map display which bears a resemblance to the visible image of the body. Modern computerized thermography produces an accurate and reproducible high-resolution image that can be analyzed both qualitatively and quantitatively for minute changes in skin surface heat emissions.
A very special skill set is needed to interpret these thermal emission patterns. It takes years of study along with an understanding of embryology, neurophysiology, biochemistry, functional systems, and abnormal metabolic processes to produce a clinical thermologist. Our group of professionals are uniquely qualified to provide your patients with the finest in thermal image interpretation and reporting.
