The more information you can get about your patients, the easier a diagnosis will be. With digital technology, thermal imaging can now be a simple, non-invasive addition to your examinations, giving you clues that help you learn more about patients that can’t speak.
Thermal images are a visual representation of the surface body temperatures of a patient and give physiological information about what is going on below the surface. Increased temperatures (hyperthermia) may indicate inflammation, infection, or malignancy. Decreased temperatures (hypothermia) may indicate atrophy or neurological dysfunction. Thermal images help form a road map for additional diagnostics and therapy.
