Understanding Medical Thermography
Mar 31, 2016 06:39PM
Thermography is the measurement of temperature variations at the body surface. As with the oral thermometer that has been used for many years, changes in temperature indicate disease processes. Finely tuned technology can find abnormalities in human wellness long before the body's sensory organs can identify them.
This is true for breast cancer, thyroid dysfunction, inflammation leading to cancer, heart disease and other diseases. Because of this, it is imperative that all physicians begin using medical thermography in their daily practice.
More than 800 articles on medical thermography in peer-reviewed journals describe applications such as heart disease, dental thermography, diabetes, thyroid dysfunction, cerebro-vascular screening with thermography and many more.
