Thermography Choices

Thermography can provide valuable information for evaluating the body’s health and wellbeing. However, it is not the best choice for monitoring general health. There are too many variables and questionable practices in providing a general “full-body thermographic exam.” Breast exams are unique because there are two breasts for comparison, the mammary function (even in men) has a vascular system that is observed with thermal imaging, they are exterior to the body cavity, they are a skin organ, responsive to the environment (hence the double-study exam). Additionally, neuro-musclu-skeletal imaging can provide excellent diagnostics. Here is a list for types of situations in which a thermogram could be useful:
