Event: Thermal Imaging, Preventing and Detecting Illness
Join Rosa and Phil who are speaking at the about how Thermography can be used as an early breast cancer assessment and how it helps to intervene as a preventative treatment.
Medical Thermography is a system using a highly technical and non-contact infrared camera to capture and record temperature variations on the skin, influenced directly by metabolic and vascular activity below the surface via the sympathetic nervous system. These variations in temperature allow for recognition of asymmetric, abnormal or suspicious thermal patterns over a specific area or region of interest and may be recognised by the doctor or interpreter.
Note: Thermography does NOT see or diagnose cancer.
At this event you will learn:
What the limitations and dangers of the current routine breast screening program are
The history of mammography and how it became the choice for routine screening.
The difference between diagnostic screening and routine screening.
The advantages of using thermography.
The use of Thermography in treating vascular, inflammation/pain, dermatology and neuromusculoskeletal conditions.
