Medical thermal imaging is a revelation in the way in which medical practitioners can make use of this fantastic FLIR technology to produce fast and accurate answers and results. Whereas sometimes people will require observations in the form of CAT scans and other similar procedures. Sometimes depending on the equipment that is used it means that in order to get the answers to an extensive health issue, the doctors and patients have to wait for the readings. However, with a thermal imaging medical diagnosis, you can see the inner workings of a human body in real-time, there and then!
With advanced medical science available nowadays, as a society, we have access to the knowledge of how certain organs and aspects of the human body function normally. Therefore, when observing a patient through a medical thermography assessment it is easy for a doctor to be able to view these organs as they function and notice any irregularities that may have occurred.
By having the ability to get these answers quickly and easily, if anything is amiss or not as it should be, then the process of diagnosis and forward planning for treatment of this ailment is greatly sped up. This is literally the difference between life and death in some cases, so why not use this brilliant equipment to start saving people left, right and centre.
There are some instances where medical thermal imaging has been used to great success for certain assessments. An excellent example is the use of infrared thermal imaging for the use of detecting breast cancer. This works by scanning the surface tissue of the breast to analyse for differences in temperature. If there are heat signature anomalies found throughout the skin of the breast it can be an indicator of the early signs of breast cancer. In this scenario, this can allow the doctor to prescribe the necessary treatments and medicine to be able to stop it dead in its tracks and resolve it before it is allowed to become a greater health threat.
Despite that previous example, there are also many other facets to medical thermography that make such an invaluable tool in the healthcare industry. Infrared thermal imaging can detect issues that arise for muscular and skeletal aspects, nervous system irregularities, stroke screenings and chronic diseases too.
While we have spoken about the use of thermal imaging as an early detection tool for getting to problems before they are allowed to become worse, that doesn’t expend medical thermography’s usefulness there. What if the problem has already occurred, been dealt with and the patient is now in the rest and recuperation phase of their journey back to optimal health? Well, thermal imaging is just as useful then too! For example, if a patient had undergone an operation and was coming to the end of their immediate recovery, it is common practice to assess the targeted area to ensure that the operation was successful. By viewing internally with a thermal imaging camera you can assess them and there’ll be no broken stitches or tears.
Medical thermal imaging from Direct Thermography that saves time, money and lives!
A thermal imaging, or FLIR, camera works by detecting the infrared radiation of a given object, person or animal based on the surface temperature. Due to this, and the fact that this practice is both non-contact and non-invasive it means that there are many applications and uses for this excellent technology.
Thermal imaging cameras have a wide range of applications and uses across an array of different industries and professions. The fact that a thermal imaging camera is able to produce results without any contact or invasion means that you can get easy and accurate answers.
As well as this, it also allows for whatever it is that is being assessed to be in operation during the survey which can be far more insightful than other methods. The industries that we most frequently conduct surveys for are; aerospace, automotive, buildings, chemical, electrical, mechanical, medical, pest control and veterinary.
Within these industries are multiple different applications for the effective use of thermal imaging cameras and their fantastic infrared detection technology.
Yes, a thermal imaging camera can indeed be used during the daytime and daylight hours. The reason for this is because a FLIR camera contains a special lens. What this lens does is that it focuses the heat given off of whatever it is that is being assessed onto a detector that is sensitive to heat. Therefore, a thermal imaging camera is not affected by light and produces equally brilliant results during the day as it would at night too.
Once you are aware that you require a thermal imaging survey then it is time to either pick up the phone to give us a call or fill out the contact for that can be found on every page of this website. We will then arrange a time that is convenient for you to be able to come and provide a free quote for the cost of the service you require. If you have already received a quote from another company, inform us of this for us to beat their price. Then it is time to get down to business, our thermal imaging survey specialists will conduct a thorough survey of whatever you require. Once we are satisfied that we have a comprehensive assessment of the given subject of the survey then we will process the data of this. We provide a report of the survey which outlines the findings of it and explains it in a way that can e understood and that will include the images from the survey too.
A thermal imaging survey will vary in cost, depending on multiple factors. Our service is entirely mobile as we can transport our thermal imaging cameras to wherever they are needed. If you are very far away from on of our offices then this may factor into the cost of your survey. Typically, a thermal imaging survey will be based around a day rate. This is subject to change by factors such as; the selected service, the necessary equipment to complete the survey, the time taken to complete the survey or other factors that are also subject to change.
