Thermography

Thermography Screening

Thermography is one of the best tools for detecting inflammation, which is key because inflammation is often a precursor to disease. Thermography can also identify dysfunction and injury within the body. It does this by taking several scans that provide a temperature map of your body with a digital infrared camera.

At Rapha Health & Wellness, 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. 

Thermography is painless and radiation free. It is a wonderful tool to use for detecting health problems at a very early stage, but it’s also an important tool for prevention. It is 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.
