According to an analysis published in 2014 and published in JAMA, the journal of the American Medical Association, over the course of 10 years of annual mammograms starting at age 50, about 61 percent of women will have at least one false positive result.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 08, 2017
This month the company RX2Live announced a new Thermal Imaging solution for physicians in Texas and the surrounding states. Thermography has been FDA approved as adjunct image screening since 1982 to spot inﬂammation and other signs of illness. However in the last 40 years significant strides have been made in the technology to help doctors use it as an early screening tool to look for early or tell-tale signs of possible malignancy. RX2Live is using these digital infrared cameras to read “heat maps” created by the body’s natural response to disease. The skin’s autonomic response to inflammation called a “heat signature”, allows the technology to convert infrared radiation emitted from the skin surface into electrical impulses that are visualized in color. The spectrum of colors indicates an increase or decrease in the amount of infrared radiation being emitted from the surface of the body.
RX2Live is helping physicians to use the device in conjunction with other methods to monitor the vascular systems, breasts and other areas within the body that had predominately been monitored using other methods. According to an analysis published in 2014 and published in JAMA, the journal of the American Medical Association, over the course of 10 years of annual mammograms starting at age 50, about 61 percent of women will have at least one false positive result.
Reducing false positive results is a key component of thermal imaging. It is offering a quick and non-invasive procedure that is pain-free and can be conducted in less than fifteen minutes. The scan captures a heat sensitive image but uses no radiation so is reported to be safe for repeated use to monitor a patient’s progress. Scanned images are evaluated by a licensed medical doctor certified in evaluation and analysis of medical digital infrared thermal imaging (D.I.T.I.)
Thermal imaging was originally designed for Dentists giving them the capability to see how dental disease can lead to other diseases. Today, Primary Care Physicians, Pain Management Centers, Chiropractors, and Senior Care Centers use thermal imaging for early detection of disease and other health related problems.
