With the use of medical thermography, we make preventive (breast) studies about how the body functions. We study physiology and not anatomy. With medical thermography, we get a report which indicates where improvements can be made within your health. Particular patterns “indicate that…” and that can be used for follow-up studies or treatments.
With medical thermography, we don’t get a diagnose, but a report which indicates where improvements can be made or give a clear reason for a follow-up study.
The study is made with a thermal camera. There is no radiation and you don’t get touched. The thermographer stays at a distance of approximately one meter and makes images from different angles.
(30 minutes) At the initial breast screening, we look at the appearance of the breasts and we also ask a lot of questions before we start with making the thermal images. These images can be found in your report. The original report is in English so in most cases we add a translated Dutch report. This report will be discussed with you in a call appointment that follows approximately 14 days after your screening. You will learn a lot about your breast health in this first report. By measuring temperatures and viewing patterns, our physicians can pinpoint what you could do to improve or maintain your health.
We often see patterns and temperatures that we would rather not see the next time. We would, therefore, like to make an appointment for a 2nd screening to form the Baseline. With the information from this 2nd report, the results will get more accurate. We give many tips during this initial breast screening and during the call appointment, everything is aimed at helping you keep your breasts healthy for a lifetime.
Two breast screenings are called a baseline breast screening. This means there will be two studies done in 3 to 6 months in between, which gives the greatest accuracy we could wish for with thermography.
In these months you can improve the tissue of your breasts. The notable patterns we had seen on the first thermogram and the differences we see on the second thermogram together form the baseline for us. We always use this baseline if you come for a breast screening every year. These photos will then be compared to see if any changes have taken place. The physician who writes your report will determine whether the follow-up examination will take place after 3, 6, or 12 months.
There is yet another reason for making a baseline. If malignant cells are present in the breasts, they divide on average every 90 days. A second screening after 3 or 6 months may give us a clearer picture of this.
Thermography has an accuracy of 95% to 97%.
(1 uur): Bij dit onderzoek kijken we vooral
naar de verbanden die er zouden kunnen zijn tussen de
gezondheid van je borsten en andere delen van je lichaam. Vaak
hebben gezondheidskwesties met andere zaken in het lichaam te
maken. Een voorbeeld daarvan is dit: een ontsteking in je kaak
(die je niet hoeft waar te nemen) kan er voor zorgen dat
bacteriën jarenlang in je lymfe draineren, langs je hals en zo je
borsten belasten. Dat zou borstklachten kunnen geven. Een ander
voorbeeld is dat we zien of de schildklier een afwijkende temperatuur heeft, of de halsslagaders. Of
dat je rug recht staat of dat daar temperaturen zijn die niet wenselijk zijn. Je kunt monitoren met
thermografie of de behandeling van een osteopaat effect heeft. Ook kijken we naar de buik en zien
daar ook verschillen in temperaturen die op iets zouden kunnen duiden. Baarmoeder en eierstokken
zijn moeilijk te ‘zien’ omdat we namelijk kijken aan de huid. Wat ik daarmee bedoel is dat het voor
borsten makkelijker is er iets over te zeggen, de bosten zijn buiten het lichaam en bestaan enkel uit
borstweefsel. De baarmoeder ligt in een gebied waar achter de huid ook de blaas en darmen zijn. Dat
maakt het moeilijker om iets specifiek van te zeggen.
(About 45 minutes): This is the most frequently chosen screening for males, and it is about the physiology of the heart and veins. Furthermore, thermal images will be made of the head and neck to look at cavities, teeth, the condition of the thyroid gland and carotid artery, and possible causes for headaches. Lots of diseases start with inflammations, which can be detected in an early stage with thermography. With thermography we measure the skin temperature; in the place in the body where the prostate is located, there are also the bladder and parts of the intestines. Therefore, deviant temperatures in this location do not necessarily have something to do with the prostate, it could also be the bladder. Deviant temperatures along the chest, stomach, and back give a good reason for a follow-up examination. Deviant patterns are very apparent on the jaw, carotid arteries, back, chest, and big parts of the stomach.
(1 hour): We will make more than 25 thermal images of your body. These are different images of the body from head to toe. During the screening, we will ask a lot of questions in order to gather information. These questionnaires, once completed, will then be sent to our physicians along with the thermal images to form a report. The full-body screening will allow you to get a clear picture of your overall health.
Lots of connections are made between different body parts. An example of this is the following. A woman had suffered from a slow thyroid gland for years, which she took Thyrax for. Her energy started to decrease and eventually, this led to a burn-out. A thermogram allowed to see patterns and temperatures over the whole body which could indicate low-grade inflammations. The therapist we referred this woman to (during the call appointment which always takes place after the consultation) could confirm that there were low-grade inflammations, and created a treatment plan which helped her step by step to cure the inflammations so that her immune system got stronger and her hormones more balanced.
Sometimes people don’t know where to start when it comes to improving their health, a thermogram can give clarification in this case. We always refer to physicians or therapists who understand what low-grade inflammations are and know how to treat this.
(30 minutes): If you have a specific question regarding a part of your body, you can request a screening which only takes half an hour. For example, if you have a question about varicose veins, or you would like to monitor whether the inflammation in your jaw is gone after a dental procedure, or you would like to know if the treatment from your osteopath is working well for your back. A regional screening does not give you an overall picture of your health, but gives clarification regarding specific questions about your health.
We can request an urgent report for every screening. The report will then be evaluated with you within 48 hours. The urgent report costs an extra €32,50 in addition to the prices above.
During the consultation, we will make a call appointment, in order to make sure you can understand the thermographic report correctly.
Make sure you read (about 20 minutes) your report with the attachments thoroughly before the free call appointment, and make sure to also write down any questions. This way you’ll be able to ask your questions effectively during the call appointment.
It is possible to take more time to evaluate your report if you prefer to. It is also possible to request a telephone consultation. The price is €25,- for a 15-minute call.
