We are pleased to be able to offer AlfaThermodiagnostics regulation thermometry scans. This non-invasive test is done in our office and allows us to identify physiological dysfunction very early in the disease process. Different from breast or whole-body thermography, which takes a heat-image “snapshot” of the body, this is a functional test that uses the ability of the autonomic nervous system to regulate temperature before and after a cooling period to evaluate the health of organs, tissues and the presence of infections, toxicity and other factors. The scan incorporates information about the teeth and their relationship to organ health, evaluates sinus health, breast health, prostate and ovarian health and much more. Using a subtle thermal stress stimulus that initiates a regulation response, underlying disturbances and dysfunctional organ systems are revealed with a high degree of accuracy.
This whole-body thermometry system employs the science of regulation thermometry, and employs data from more than 100,000 patient assessments over the past three decades. Disease signatures have been derived from the data and correlated with nuclear-CT (SPECT) and MRI studies.
How it works:
The AlfaSight 9000TM has been FDA cleared for adjunct diagnosis of:
- Abnormalities of the female breast
- Peripheral vascular disease
- Musculoskeletal disorders
- Extra-cranial cerebral and facial vascular disease
- Abnormalities of the thyroid gland
- Various neoplastic (cancerous) and inflammatory conditions
Regulation thermometry is not intended to serve as a sole diagnostic screening procedure. Thermometry is not a replacement for mammography or any other imaging method, rather it is to be used in conjunction with conventional testing to provide a physiological perspective.
How is it done?
You will be asked to come to the clinic wearing long pants and sleeves, having had a light breakfast but no shower or bath (full instructions will be given to you when you book your appointment). When you arrive, you will be asked to remove your glasses and turn off your cell phone while you relax and adjust to the temperature of the clinic for about 15 minutes. Then your first scan will be done with an infrared sensor that is lightly placed on the skin at over 100 different points on your head and torso. After a 10 minute cooling period, the scan will be repeated. All together, the process takes about 45 minutes. Your results will be reviewed at a follow-up appointment.
