Cutting edge technology in assessing your health
Medical thermography, or digital infrared thermal imaging is completely non-invasive, without radiation, and is a painless clinical imaging procedure. Used in detecting and monitoring a number of diseases and physical injuries by showing thermal (heat) abnormalities present in the body. It is used as an aid for diagnosis and prognosis, as well as monitoring progress for conditions and injuries. It is quick, can be done anywhere on the body, and gives instant results. After your examination, a full digital report is sent to you for your personal records. Or on request can be forwarded to other healthcare professionals to be used along side other diagnostic processes and treatment.
Now with thermal imaging, many of these physiological and anatomical issues are exposed at a much earlier stage. Early detection = early prevention.
Unexplained Pain Dental and TMJ
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Referred Pain Syndrome
Sprain / Strain
Medical thermal imaging detects physiological abnormalities by measuring temperature changes and assessing dermal blood flow. It is performed by a skilled thermologist and uses a powerful infrared camera which measures minute temperature changes. The visual image graphically maps the body temperature in the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. Thermal imaging’s high sensitivity to pathology in vascular, muscular, neural and skeletal systems make it an invaluable and life saving tool.
X-Ray, C.T., Ultrasound and M.R.I are all tests of 'anatomy' that measure the structures of your body. Whereas thermography is unique in its capability to show the physiological change and metabolic processes occurring in the body.
Other Uses Include:
• Facial pain related to tooth or jaw problems
• Poor circulation
• Joint and musculoskeletal problems
• Soft tissue problems
• Asymmetrical use of the body
• Address issues which may lead to chronic problems
• Observing how injury responds to a treatment modality
• Muscle tears, strains, & bruises
• Underlying issues: secondary, tertiary, and compensatory problems

While undressing and acclimating, Kate will review your intake forms.
This ensures the information is accurate and checks if anything is missing or can ask for further information. This also gives you the chance to add anything you may have remembered after submitting your forms.
Once your body has sufficiently cooled down, the imaging can begin. This usually takes 15 minutes.
Imaging involves moving in different positions to ensure all areas and angles are imaged correctly.
If you have significant mobility difficulties, please email us to discuss your needs. This may mean bringing a support person to your appointment who can assist you in standing.
When imaging is completed, you are free to get dressed.
Kate may have further questions to ask after viewing the raw images.
This is also a good time to ask any questions you may have thought of while being imaged.
