Glowing spineThermography Body Scanning in Mt Pleasant

Thermography body scanning, also known as Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI), is a health analysis tool that uses a far infrared camera to take pictures of the body. These pictures indicate where heat and inflammation exist over specific organs. The location of the hot spot and how hot it is tells us a lot about your state of health.

The screening lets us know if there’s anything happening in your body that might indicate potential disease. We’re then able to coach patients on how to get better results for the next screening and be healthier in general.

Our chiropractors are proponents of the process and use it themselves. They’re excited to offer this service to their patients.


How Does It Help Me

Boasting an FDA 510k clearance, thermal imaging is most commonly used by women for breast cancer screenings, but may be used to detect other types of cancer and diseases. Men may also benefit from the screenings. By detecting physiological changes in the body in response to disease or pathology, such as abnormal vascular activity and inflammation, patients are able to take additional steps to heal the body and eliminate inflammation.

This safe imaging test produces an infrared image showing patterns of heat and blood flow near the surface of the body. This is very different from tests used for anatomical or structural analysis, such as mammography, MRI, and ultrasounds. Those tests look at what’s happening in the body that might be seen, such as a cyst or a tumor.

Thermography looks at the heat discrepancies in your body to detect disease at an early stage or severe health problems in some cases, known or unknown. If an injury is brewing, we can identify unusually hot or cold areas and work on them now before an injury occurs! Patients may request a breast only scan, a health profile, or full body imaging. HSA and FSA plans are accepted.

What to Expect

Prior to your scans, there are intake forms to complete, as well as some protocols to be followed before your screening. The actual scan will take place at Atlas Spine & Wellness Care. After your scans are completed, they’re submitted through the patient portal to our team of interpreting doctors for review. They will create the report, take all the temperatures with the software, and return the results to the patient and the practitioner.

Your technician is certified through the Professional Academy of Clinical Thermology (PACT) and works with the international company Flow Well to interpret your scans. When you receive the results, the scans will indicate if there are any areas that need to be further explored to prevent or treat a concerning condition. Lifestyle changes are often recommended to improve health, and the technician may refer patients to different professionals for further care.
