Thermography is the medical science that derives diagnostic indications from highly detailed and sensitive infrared images of the human body. Medical Thermogrophy is sometimes referred to as medical infrared imaging and utilizes highly resolute and sensitive infrared thermal imaging cameras.
Thermography is completely non-contact and non-invasive; and involves no form of energy imparted onto or into the body. Medical Infrared Thermography has recognized applications in breast oncology, chiropractics, dentistry, neurology, orthopaedics, occupational medicine, pain management, vascular medicine/cardiology and veterinary medicine
Medical thermal imaging (DITI) has been found to be a valuable adjunct to mammography and ultrasound to detect breast cancer. This was particularly useful in women with dense breast parenchyma. This and other abundant studies have shown that the now called infrared mammography has resurfaced. Another very interesting and exciting new application is for Rheumatology patients. A study published last year in Arthritis Rheumatology proved digital infrared thermal imaging to be a very important tool to assess circulatory function. The study was conducted in a set of patients with Systemic sclerosis and primary Raynaud’s problem. Thermal imaging proved to be a good discrimination tool to measure cutaneous blood vessel function in these types of patients.
