Is infrared full body imaging an alternative to an MRI or CT scan?
Absolutely not! The technologies are completely different. MRI and CT are structural imaging procedures. Infrared imaging is an adjunctive physiologic imaging procedure that does not look inside the body. If you are interested in looking for structural changes such as a tumor, arteries of the heart, colon views, or views of the female reproductive organs, then MRI, CT, or EBT would be the right choices. If you are in chronic pain, or interested in prevention, infrared imaging may be able to help you.
Infrared imaging does not replace any other form of imaging, but is designed to be used in addition to other tests to provide physiological information that cannot be obtained from other examination procedures.
Adding infrared imaging to your regular health care may help you in improving your quality of life.
