Frequently Asked Questions


What are the​ benefits of Thermal Imaging?

  • Thermography is a non-invasive diagnostic tool with scientifically valid, reproducible results.
  • Thermography is an FDA approved adjunctive diagnostic device so the results can be trusted.
  • Thermography can detect dysfunction even when conventional blood tests and radiographic tests were negative.

 

Does insurance cover thermal imaging?

  • All insurance carriers are different.  Currently Total Thermal Imaging does not accept insurance, however we  provide you with a Superbill for you to submit to your insurance company.
  • HSA or FSA accounts are accepted as a viable method for paying for your scan.

 

Why get tested with thermal imaging?

  • Thermal imaging has been an available medical test for more than 50 years, and its nonmedical applications pre-date that by a decade. 
  • Despite controversy in its early days, this tool has withstood the test of time and has become the mainstay in many diagnostic endeavors. The technology in modern day thermography as well as properly training technicians has improved tremendously over the years.
  •  With the increasing technological advances of thermal imaging cameras and the newest and best software available, WHY NOT BE TESTED WITH THERMOGRAPHY?
  •  It locates dysfunction with precision going right to the source of heat increased blood supply and enables your doctor to develop a more exact treatment plan.  Clearly shows future disease tendencies of those in the process of development.

 

How does thermal imaging work?

  • Thermography registers skin-surface temperature from 112 different points on the body.
  •  Thermography displays an image yielding a scan of 25 organs, tissues, or systems and their function.
  •  While X-rays give a structural view, thermography gives us a functional perspective based on physiology and cold stress response.
  •  By computer analysis of the skin temperature patterns, the doctor gains a direct index of the metabolic activity in various parts of the body.
  •  The thermography scan will also show inflamed, degenerated, or overactive organ or tissue processes.

 

Who should be tested with thermal imaging?

  • There is no one who shouldn’t be tested. It is a safe procedure for people of all ages. Thermography offers reproducible and scientifically valid information that can be crucial to the development and tracking of a successful treatment strategy.
