THERMOLOGY: A DEFINITION
Thermology is the medical science that derives diagnostic indications from highly detailed and sensitive infrared images of the human body by applying a quantitative and objective analytic system. Thermology is sometimes referred to as digital infrared imaging, diagnostic infrared imaging, infrared mammography or tele-thermology and involves the use of highly resolute and sensitive infrared (thermographic) cameras. Thermology is a patho-physiologic imaging discipline, completely non-contact and involves no form of energy imparted onto or into the body. Thermology has established applications in breast oncology, vascular medicine, chiropractic, dentistry, neurology, occupational medicine, orthopedics, pain management and veterinary medicine.
