MEDICAL INFRARED thermography aka Thermal Imaging
Why Begin A Health Discovery Journey with Medical Thermography?**
Health awareness. Early Intervention. Empowerment. Prevention.
Seeing early health warnings, before they develop into health challenges, affords time to seek appropriate diet, lifestyle and/or medical intervention to heal the body.
Medical thermography looks for asymmetries, infrared heat intensity and distributions that are not seen in ultrasound and mammogram screenings. Images flagged by the reporting doctor as "high level of concern" may require referral out for further evaluation by medical professionals.
Some conditions seen with medical thermography:
* vascular issue * headache patterns * carotid pathology
* arterial inflammation * referred pain or trigger pts * autoimmune condition
* back, shoulder, joint injuries* nerve damage * digestive disorders
* dental pain and TMJ * arthritis * response to treatments
Medical thermography can assess response to treatment and treatment outcome for surgeries, chemo/radiation, detox programs, hormone balancing programs, acupuncture, dental repairs, chiropractic, and other therapies.
Is thermal imaging right for you?
Please consider thermal imaging if you have had:
* history of smoking 5 years or more
* history of using contraceptives or HRT for 5 yrs or more
* late menarche, late pregnancy, no pregnancy, amenorrhea, or late menopause
* root canals
* more than 5 mammograms, or CT scans
* suspicious pains, inflammation, infections, numbness or tingling
* residual pain or health issues after injuries and surgeries
* concerns about therapy or treatment outcome
* high chemical exposure, eg in nail or hair salons, radiation, pesticides
* family history of genetic diseases and cancers
How does thermal imaging work? Infrared thermography technology converts infrared, non-ionizing radiation emitted from our skin surface into electrical impulses that are visualized in colors. This technology has been used in the military, NASA, police and industrial imaging for decades, with camera resolution and software technology improving significantly since the 1950's.
Thermal Imaging Involves No Radiation, No Body Contact, and No Pain
It's like having your photographs taken in a dim, cool room.
Total Privacy Screenings
We know how awkward it can be to disrobe for medical procedures. Our fully automated camera stand allows the practitioner to operate the camera remotely, protecting your privacy.
High Resolution FLIR Infrared Camera Imaging & Report by a Medical Doctor
We take high resolution images with world-renown FLIR thermal cameras for crisp images of your thermal patterns. All images are sent to a medical doctor, Dr. Christine Horner, a former breast surgeon, trained in reading thermographic images. Her report along with the images are sent via a HIPAA compliant email to you. Go to IAMTonline.org to learn more.
Breast Study, 20-25 minutes: $225*
Men's Health Study (face, head, neck, carotid, thyroid, shoulders, chest, back, abdomen), 30-35 minutes: $325*
Women's Health Study, same as Men's Health Study plus extra images of the breasts, 35-40 min: $350*
Full Body (all views of the body including arms, legs, hands, feet), 29 images, 40-50 minutes: $450/Man and $475/Woman*
* Fees are due at the time of service. Cash or credit card only.
Does insurance cover infrared thermography?
Liberty Health Share does cover medical thermography.
HSA may pay for thermography; please check.
Most insurance policies do not. Please check with your policy and ask about CPT code 93740, which stands for Breast Thermography/Temperature Gradient Study.
If your insurance does not cover breast thermal imaging, please check with United Breast Cancer Foundation if all or part of the cost would be covered. Their website is UBCF.org.
We accept Care Credit.
**Infrared thermography is an FDA approved screening procedure as an adjunct to mammography. All thermography reports are meant to identify thermal markers for health risks, not diagnose or treat. The earliest detection is best realized with multiple tests: self-examination, physical exam by doctors, thermography, ultrasound, MRI, mammography and other appropriate tests the doctors may order.
