Thermal imaging diagnostics (thermography) — a method for detecting thermal fields of the human body, which are read by the device and displayed on the screen as a thermal image called thermogram. The survey is conducted by a special device — the thermal imager, the principle of operation is based on capturing the heat of the human body.
Thermal imaging inspection is a “passive diagnostics” method — ie, the device has no effect on the object, but only receives information about it. Diagnosis is performed remotely, nothing comes into contact with the body, nothing enters it, there is no radiation. The harmlessness and non-invasiveness of the diagnostics method allow us to state that, the imager is not able to cause any harm to human health.
The resulting thermogram represents the image of the human body with temperature fluctuations. Cold body parts are blue area, normal body temperature is green, and the areas with higher temperatures are red and yellow and finally white, indicates the highest temperature. Low temperature can mean a variety of circulatory disorders or chronic diseases; fever is a symptom of inflammation or disease.
Thermal diagnostic, due to its high information content, is used for the diagnosis of various diseases in various fields of medicine. But perhaps the main advantage of thermography is the ability to detect and identify abnormal changes in the body at an early, pre-clinical stage of the disease. Proper use of this information can help prevent diseases that will soon develop in the patient.
Another advantage of thermal image is that it shows the dynamics of the disease, and displays the results of the treatment. Thus, the patient can himself monitor the positive changes in his body at different stages of treatment.
In foreign practice, thermal imaging diagnostics have long been included in the standard set of diagnostic measures, due to their advantages. In many states, national programs for the use of thermography for mass screening — diagnostics of people have been successfully implemented to identify diseases of the thyroid and mammary glands.
In Russia, doctors have been suspicious about thermal imaging diagnostics for a long time, and only in recent years started to actively implement thermography in their daily routine. Initial difficulties in the application of thermography can be explained with the omission of a key component — training of qualified specialists. In fact, without qualified personnel, this technique could be useless because of the difficulties in interpreting the results.
To date, criteria and symptoms have been developed in thermal diagnostics for more than two hundred diseases, and the list is constantly updated, so for quality work a diagnostician needs to undergo special training and then continually improve his knowledge. Thermography can detect some diseases on its own, while for other diseases, additional methods are required to prove the thermographic symptomatology. Thus, definitive diagnosis rests with the physician, on the basis of all the necessary diagnostic methods.
Doctors at Kupeev clinic are certified specialists in the field of thermal imaging diagnostics, who have sufficient experience in the application of this technology and who constantly improve their knowledge. They will help you to identify the true causes of your ailments, as well as recognize the early warning signs of possible diseases, if any.
Thermal imaging is used:
- osteochondrosis, scoliosis;
- pain in the cervical and lumbar spine;
- pathology of the joints;
- gynecological diseases;
- pathology of the genitourinary system;
- pathology of the digestive system;
- migraine and cephalalgia;
- vegetative-vascular dystonia;
- facial pain;
- panic attacks;
- …and a number of other diseases;
Contraindications to thermal imaging do not exist, the study can be repeated many times.
