Join Louise Milleman for a discussion on thermography for wellness.
Louise’s bio and info about thermography is below.
PLEASE RSVP SO WE CAN SECURE SEATING AT DAD’S!
Louise Milleman, CTT is a baby-wearing, earth-loving, home-steading, tree-hugging, conscious-parenting, breastmilk-advocating, home-schooling, RV-living, freedom-fighting, world-traveling citizen of the entire world who happens to be obsessed with helping people stay healthy!! She has spent the last 4 years of her life traveling the world educating others about how to live a vibrant, healthy life incorporating nature in as many ways as possible – and raising some free range babies along the way!!! She feels so blessed to be living this life, ensuing her passion and sharing it all with the world!!!
WHAT IS INFRARED THERMOGRAPHY?
Thermography, also known as digital infrared thermal imaging, uses a state-of-the-art infrared camera to measure the temperature of the skin’s surface. We look for asymmetry in the body and indications of abnormal hot or cold patterns. These thermal images can show an increase in temperature if/when physiological changes are happening.
WHAT IS MEDICAL THERMOGRAPHY?
Medical Thermography is a whole body analysis for assessing skin surface temperatures that can be correlated by a physician to assess for abnormal physiology. Uses for thermography are similar to that of an oral thermometer, a stethoscope, or any other medical test that assesses patient function. There are several type of medical devices used by the medical thermologist. These include contact sensors, infrared cameras, and point analysis systems. The most technical and advanced system is the infrared thermal camera and is the choice technology of Breast Thermography International and the Professional Academy of Clinical Thermology.
Infrared cameras measure radiation in the infrared electromagnetic emission that the human body emits. The sensors on the thermal camera read varying degrees of infrared emittance and through proper calibration translates it in to a temperature reading. The information is then plotted in a digital format in color palette. The most common palette is the rainbow (ROYGBIV) that shows hot measurements as red & white and cold as magenta & black. These patterns are then analyzed and physiological assessments are made.
WHAT IS BREAST THERMOGRAPHY?
Breast Thermography is a non invasive and non destructive way to screen for breast cancer without radiation or compression. It uses state of the art technology that assesses heat in the breast through infrared technology. Comparative exams can create a baseline for monitoring breast health based on thermal changes.
