Mammograms, ultrasounds, MRIs and other structural imaging tools favored by modern medicine are used to DETECT physical tumors the body has already produced. Doctors often refer to these tools as ‘prevention’ methods but they certainly are not that.
Thermography (digital infrared imaging) takes a different approach: It measures the HEAT PATTERNS CREATED BY INFLAMMATION in pre-cancerous tissues and in areas surrounding a developing cancerous tumor and other abnormalities. Thermography is done with sensitive medical infrared cameras connected to sophisticated computers to produce high-resolution images of temperature variations in the body. And, unlike most of the more commonly used structural imaging tools, it does this without exposing us to any radiation. (Pacific Chiropractic and Research Center. 2005)
