THERMOGRAPHY

Thermography provides a very early look at the most important indicator of a potential health problem – Inflammation.

Thermography uses an infrared camera that measures the surface temperature of your skin to detect patterns that may indicate the need for further clinical evaluation.

Thermography detects inflammation, often long before you may feel any symptoms or be diagnosed with an actual disease.
