Midwest Thermography

At Midwest Thermography, we are dedicated to educating patients and health care providers about the benefits of thermography, its intended use and the correct methods of thermal imaging and interpretation.  In 1982, thermography was approved by the FDA for use as adjunct testing to other clinical diagnostic procedures in the diagnosis, quantifying, and screening of differences in skin surface temperature changes.

Thermography is a non-invasive, infrared imaging technology free of ionizing radiation that visualizes and documents temperature variations.  This allows for visualization of physiological changes in the body, such as a hormone imbalance and health risks associated with one’s lifestyle.  Imaging such as x-rays, mammography, ultrasound, and MRI’s are utilized to detect abnormal structures within the body.  Both are completely different pieces of information that are complementary in the detection process.

At Midwest Thermography, we strive to offer services with integrity, quality and excellent customer service in a safe, comfortable environment.

At Midwest Thermography, we provide thermal imaging services as an assessment tool to be used in addition to standard screening and/or diagnostic examinations. It is not a stand-alone examination and cannot diagnose or rule out the presence of injury or disease. When interpreting these images, we look for unusual patterns of warmth and cooling that can suggest inflammation and circulatory changes that may suggest risk for various types of injury and disease. Since the causes of most of the examination findings cannot be determined by the thermal images alone, additional examinations are always required before a final diagnosis can be made. In the absence of clinical findings, thermal findings may constitute functional changes to the body which should be monitored as they may suggest risk for illness, injury or pain syndromes in the future. Internal organs cannot be directly evaluated with thermal imaging and are indirectly evaluated by looking for neurological reflexes that can potentially affect the temperature at the surface of the body. All examinations are performed using a high resolution computerized thermal imaging camera in a controlled environment after following strict pre-examination protocols to insure the accuracy of the findings.

The Federal Drug Administration accepts thermography as an adjunct to other diagnostic testing for:

  • Extracranial Cerebral Vascular Disease
  • Female Breast Conditions
  • Musculoskeletal Disorders
  • Neoplastic and Inflammatory Conditions
  • Peripheral Vascular Disease
  • Thyroid Gland Abnormalities
