Inflammation is a red flag to a variety of diseases, illnesses and ailments that plague people from all walks of life. Inflammation in and of itself is the response that a healthy body has to cellular damage or a threat to the body. This means that when our bodies are struggling with inflammation, it’s a warning sign of something else. Inflammation isn’t the cause of illnesses or disease, but rather, it is our body’s way of telling us that something is wrong, or trying to fight back against what is harming it.
Chronic inflammation “occurs when your immune system gets set permanently to “on.” As a result, it constantly releases a flood of damaging chemicals that could sicken your cells. It’s like a forest fire that never goes out,” says naturopathic physician and nutritionist Kellyann Petrucci, ND.
Temperature difference in the skin surface reflects the abnormality present in the human body. Considering the phenomenon, detection and forecasting the change of temperature is the principal objective of using
Medical Infrared Thermography (MIT)
a technology for the use in aiding your doctor in the discovery of inflammatory pain conditions.
Thermography offers a non-invasive, non-contact, radiation-free imaging modality to assess abnormal inflammation. The thermogram creates a map of the skin surface temperature which can indicate an inflammatory process is or will occur, demonstrated through heat patterns. Abnormal heat patterns provide an indicator that something may be happening in the body that could require more investigation.
Before you arrive for your thermogram,
certain protocols must be followed in order to ensure
that your images reflect accurate information.
Please read the following instructions
and strictly adhere to them.
