Thermography

Thermography Screening

 

A healthy alternative to mammography!

 

In cooperation with True Life in Falköping we can now offer thermography to all women!

 

Thermography screening is given in our location in Lerum.

Each visit costs: 800 SEK 

 

We recall everyone to take a follow-up screening 1-3 months after the first visit,

as we need to have a reference image to assume.

 

Call or email us to book your appointment for thermography!

Screening of chest 30 min

800 SEK

 

When we are mobile, each visit costs

1000 SEK

Good to know before you come to your screening:

 

It is important that the patient avoids:

 

• Hard workout and sauna bath 24 hours before the examination

• All forms of sunbathing should be avoided 5-10 days before the examination

• Alcohol and strong drugs 5 days before the examination

• Hot drinking the evening before and in the morning

• Meal, 3-4 hours before the survey

• Creams, lotions or oils of various kinds 24 hours before the examination

Thermography - What is it?

 

Everything radiates thermal energy to the environment in the form of invisible infrared radiation energy. You have probably heard of infrared heat. Infrared thermography is the technique used to make this invisible radiation visible.

 

In terms of humans and animals, a thermography survey shows the physiology of the individual and not anatomy. The infrared camera measures the surface temperature of the body and presents the information in the form of a digital image.

 

In case of injury, there is increased activity in the area when the body's healing process starts and therefore you can see an increased temperature difference. This also applies when the body tries to fight a tumor. You can see the change long before a tumor develops. Since the vascular system (the blood vessel system) and the vegetative system (nervous system) are normally the same on both sides of the body, asymmetry can indicate a problem.

 

The pictures we take can be saved in the computer as reference images. New thermographic surveys will reveal changes.

 

Thermography is incredibly useful, for example, for prevention purposes. You can then, with regular thermography, see how tissues change - inflammation increases or decreases, etc.

 

 

How does a survey go?

 

Before a Thermal Survey, the patient must be informed of important actions that it must take to exclude sources of error.

 

It is important that the patient avoids:

 

  • Hard workout and sauna bath 24 hours before the examination
  • All forms of sunbathing should be avoided 5-10 days before the examination
  • Alcohol and strong drugs 5 days before the examination
  • Hot drinking the evening before and in the morning
  • Meal, 3 hours before the survey
  • Creams, lotions or oils of various kinds 24 hours before the examination
  • Anti-inflammatory drugs 24 hours before the examination

 

Ongoing infection with fever increases the temperature, which can create sources of error, scars have a lower circulation, which must be taken into consideration when evaluating.

 

To exclude different sources of error, the body part to be examined should not be covered by clothing 10-15 minutes before the examination. Suitable room temperature for adults about 20-25 degrees.

 

Also, the body part must not be exposed to any kind of hot movements that may develop sources of error. The distance between the heating camera and the patient is between 1 meter to about 2 meters. The therapist adjusts the camera and sharpens the computer screen, until the picture is as good as it can be. The possible imbalance can be seen directly on the screen.

 

Pictures on your breasts will be taken from different angles. The images are sent to the doctor for analysis. You will not be notified at the time of your visit.

 

The screening is done in collaboration with True Life in Falköping. The pictures are then treated by a doctor.
