Northern Virginia’s Premier Ultrasound Provider Expands Practice to Offer Medical Thermography

Nov 29, 2016 10:18AM
Northern Virginia’s premier prenatal ultrasound imaging provider, InfantSee4D, recently announced the addition of medical thermography to their practice. Thermography Imaging, Inc. now offers this painless, safe, non-invasive and popular procedure which uses a thermal imaging camera to detect heat and inflammation within the body. Designed to be a complement to other forms of diagnostic testing such as mammograms, MRIs and CT scans, thermography often detects problems and areas of concern in very early stages.

According to Thermography Imaging, Inc. owner and founder Maria Christopoulos, many illnesses can be difficult to detect until it is too late. This was the case for Christopoulos herself who was diagnosed with a brain tumor several years ago. “My own illness inspired me to seek alternative ways of detecting issues in the human body,” explains Christopoulos.

One area of interest for women is breast scans. Mammograms normally detect cancer after the mass becomes large enough to be felt or seen. Thermography, however, allows for the budding cells to be seen. In many cases, thermography can see changes in the breast much earlier.

Christopoulos says thermography is popular for younger clients who have not reached the age to begin regular mammogram screenings, yet would like to see if they have any underlying areas of concern. Women who get regular mammograms are encouraged to continue doing so based on their doctor’s recommendations. Adding thermography to annual mammogram screenings can help detect cancers at the earliest possible stages.
