Thermography

Thermography is the best screening method for early detection of breast cancer as well as other illnesses. With Thermography, we are able to look at the physiology of the body to detect inflammation, congestion, and other abnormalities by measuring your body’s surface temperature.

Rapha Health & Wellness is the area’s leading provider of Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI) services. A clinical thermographer performs each thermogram using a medical thermal camera. Each scan is read and interpreted by a medical doctor known as a thermologist.

We offer breast scans as well as full or half body scans for the detection of many conditions. We are the only provider in Minnesota that reviews the results with you and provides notes to share with your doctor or chiropractor. Thermography can assist in diagnosis and treatment as well as help monitor therapy progress. It is also a great way to perform your yearly physical.

Thermography is commonly used for:

  • Artery Inflammation
  • Arthritis
  • Breast Disease
  • Back injuries
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy)
  • Dental
  • Digestive Disorders
  • Disc Disease
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches
  • Inflammatory Pain
  • Nerve Damage
  • Referred Pain Syndrome
  • Skin Cancer
  • Sports Injuries
  • Sprain/Strain
  • Stress fractures
  • Stroke Screening
  • TMJ
  • Unexplained pain
  • Vascular Disease
  • Whiplash

Many times, these conditions and injuries are not detected with x-ray or other diagnostic tools. X-ray and CT, as well as ultrasound and MRI, are all tests of “anatomy” that measure the structures in your body. DITI is unique in its capability to show physiological change and metabolic processes.
