Thermography is a diagnostic method with no side effects that uses thermal image measurement as a scientifically reliable and early indicator for the localization of inflammatory disease sites and tumors.
How infrared radiation temperature is measured: The methods, also known as quantitative infrared thermography and pyrometry, are based on the physical phenomenon in which bodies with a temperature above absolute zero, i.e. 0 °K (-273.15 °C), emit electromagnetic radiation. If the intensity can be determined, it is possible to measure the temperature of the body emitting the radiation.
Infrared radiation is the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that borders on red light at a wavelength of approx. 760nm on the long wavelength side of the visible spectrum and extends up to approx. 1 mm wavelength. For the technical temperature measurement, the range up to about 20μm wavelength is of importance.
Thermography is a technological method capable of depicting heat fields and is therefore particularly suitable for detecting inflammation in the body. It can also be used as an effective alternative to mammography to identify active areas where cancer cells form.
Thermography is a reliable method that delivers objective data on body heat with high precision. This information can be used for diagnoses, treatments, and prognoses. A thermography session takes about 20 minutes and is a painless, non-invasive procedure.
