Hi! You’re probably reading this page for one of two reasons: a woman who cares about you told you to or you’ve got a health problem you’re trying to solve.
Let’s start with how I can help you. Thermal imaging is almost as sexy as those heat seeking missiles in the movie Top Gun Yep, it’s similar technology, but modified for being able to read what’s happening under your skin in your body. (I’ve got a history of thermal imaging in military, environmental, and medical uses here on my FAQ page if you want to know more!)
By now, you’ve heard in health news reports that inflammation is the root of all disease in your body. So, other than aches and pains, how do we find inflammation in the body? Thermal imaging can help you see the pain you feel, and more importantly the pain you don’t feel yet.
Just like that heat seeking missile, you will see the hot spots in your body. Like arthritis from that old football injury or the inflammation in your gut, which might explain some digestive issues you’re having. It can also see inflammation in your “heat seeking missile”. Yep, I did that, just slipped it right in - it is in fact, one of the biggest reasons thermography can be a prevention tool for you and your prostate.
The best part of thermal imaging is that I don’t see you naked, I don’t touch/palpate any part of you - it’s very non-invasive in how we obtain the images. (I know, part of you is relieved - who wants another medical expert poking and prodding you in awkward places!)
You are behind a screen with a camera pointed at you that’s hooked up to my laptop. All I see are the thermal images of what’s under your skin. My job is to make sure the camera is focused and that the doctor reading the scan will be able to see what they are supposed to see. It’s easy and painless and you learn a lot about what’s under your skin. Literally. (No, I won’t find your pestering wife there!)
Some men do literally come in just to appease their wives or women that care about them. It’s ok if you come in just to make her happy. And to make you happy, here’s a link to the research I’ve compiled.
Let me tell you about Tom, a friend of my husband’s who was having chronic back pain?__tell me some details and I will make this a story too. Then give me another few cases of what men found solutions to with their appt. In each case, these patients will get a full or half body scan, simply because it makes the most sense.
Multiple studies have shown that inflammation is associated with many health problems. A thermography scan detects inflammation in the body with amazing accuracy. Thermal changes over time may identify abnormal physiology. Detecting these abnormalities in the early stages, before the symptoms appear, allows for early intervention with more options.
Thermography is the only method available for visualizing pain and may be useful as an adjunctive procedure to other diagnostic tools. It is unique in its capability to show physiological change and metabolic processes and is useful in monitoring therapy. Whether acute or chronic, thermal imaging may help you and your healthcare team to safely get you back to better health.
My experience from my initial call to inquire of an appointment to that of the appointment went quite well. Staff is very informative, caring in sharing in the details to understand the process.
I can't tell you how happy I am to have this service come to the Quad City area! I have recommended it to many people! Pam is so helpful and informative, it really has been a Godsend!
Anita was very prompt ... I was very happy with the ideas on what I can do to improve my overall breast health.
Thank you for offering Thermography service...
