The MTS center supports and promotes Thermography as a means of evaluating through the heat the appropriate function of the body.
What is Thermography?
Thermography is a whole body analysis for assessing skin surface temperatures that can be assessed for abnormal physiology. Uses for thermography are similar to that of an oral thermometer, a stethoscope, or any other test that assesses patient function. There are several type of devices used by the thermologist. These include contact sensors, infrared cameras, and point analysis systems. The most technical and advanced system is the infrared thermal camera which is the choice technology of Breast Thermography International and the Professional Academy of Clinical Thermology. Infrared cameras measure radiation in the infrared electromagnetic emission that the human body emits. The sensors on the thermal camera read varying degrees of infrared emittance and through proper calibration, translates it in to a temperature reading. The information is then plotted in a digital format in a color palette. The most commonly used palette is the full spectrum rainbow (ROYGBIV) which shows hot measurements as red and white and cold measurements as magenta and black. These patterns are then analyzed and physiological assessments are made.
The MTS center, through our certified in Thermography therapists, in association with our Clinical evaluation application '' Manual Therappist'' will learn you how yoy should be evaluated before your treatment.
