A thermography scan, also known as thermal imaging, is a diagnostic tool that allows us to record heat patterns caused by inflammation and analyze them for abnormalities. Inflammation is a precursor to many diseases and can point to existing issues within the body including breast cancer, arthritis, risk for stroke, heart disease, hypertension and diabetes. While a thermography scan is most commonly used for breast cancer prevention and detection, a full-body thermography scan can show early signs before they turn into diseases and health conditions.
At Strength & Vitality Wellness Center, we have an opportunity for you to get a thermography scan right here in our Mt. Washington, Baltimore office several times a year. This 15-minute, pain-free and non-invasive procedure can help detect irregular patterns without the use of radiation years before you receive a mammogram.
A Thermography Scan – Know Your Body
Thermography can be used on many parts of your body and is a good way to proactively manage your health. While thermography testing can be used for early diagnosis and prevention of breast cancer, it can also be used as an alternative to mammography. In fact, thermography works quite differently than mammography as “it investigates vascular changes in the breast, detects patterns of blood flow, inflammation and symmetrical changes.” Thermography scans have many benefits, including:
- No radiation involved – the procedure is completely safe
- Pain-free and highly accurate
- Detect development of unhealthy tissue before it turns into disease
- Detect the severity of an existent medical condition
Schedule a thermography scan today to ensure early detection for many issues before they become problematic. If your thermography scan reveals inflammation, Strength & Vitality Wellness Center can help you design a plan that will help reduce it over time. Inflammation can be reduced by dietary changes, supplements, detoxification, stress-reduction and acupuncture. For more information on our upcoming thermography scans, call us at 410-296-4028.
