Did you know that computer regulation thermography is not limited to breast cancer-screening? This innovative technology can actually evaluate the entire body and check more organs for abnormalities via skin temperature measurements. So why wouldn't you want to take advantage of a full-body thermography?
There are several reasons to get a full-body thermography. These include:
It doesn’t involve radiation.
Some screening methods expose patients to small doses of radiation. Having a radiation-free option for full-body screening is ideal. A thermography assesses a patient’s skin temperature through thermal imaging and deciphers this information on a computer screen in the form of electronic data signals without the use of radiation.
It screens for more than just cancer.
Not only can a full-body thermography detect breast cancer, as well as other forms, but it can also uncover additional diseases and conditions, and help identify a wide range of dysfunctions, including, but not limited to:
- Blood clots
- Heart disease
- Nervous system disorders
- Cardiovascular disease
- Dental issues
- Immune system disorders
- Intestinal conditions
It is non-invasive.
A thermography is not an invasive procedure, and doesn't involve much preparation, either. While you'll be instructed to cease exercising, showering, and using certain body creams/sprays the morning of your exam, you won’t be required to do much else, other than wear loose-fitting clothing.
It is known for its early detection capabilities.
One benefit of undergoing a full-body thermography is the prospect of detecting an abnormality in its early stages, which in many cases, can be vital in effectively treating such an issue.
A 2010 study in the medical journal Nanomedicine demonstrates the continuous research evaluating different thermography methods and their respective capabilities to recognize early signs of a disorder or disease. For instance, in this particular study, the results find a thermography “could potentially offer a cost-effective, safe, and sensitive method for early detection of cancerous tumors.”
