The Screening Method That Helps Detect Disease Early

Thermography, or digital infrared thermal imaging, is a screening method which catches dysfunctions before they becomes symptoms, Tammy Kohlschmidt, a certified clinical thermographer at Thermography for Health New York in New York City, tells WellBe. By taking images that show body temperature and blood flow and looking for abnormal variations, clinicians can help screen for disease. Though thermography and mammograms are both assessment tools (meaning they’re not diagnostic), thermography is not a replacement for mammograms and shouldn’t be solely used to diagnose breast cancer, according to the Food and Drug Administration.
Watch the full Wellbe interview  to hear Kohlschmidt explain why thermography helps you understand what’s going on in your body—with or without symptoms, what to expect during a thermography appointment, and how to find qualified professionals.
