human-thermographyWhat is Medical Infrared Imaging (Thermography)

Medical infrared imaging (MII) provides a non-radiating and contact-free method to display sympathetic skin vasomotor response, inflammation or vascular skin perfusion. Skin galvanic impedance, vasomotor and sudomotor functioning can be assessed through infrared skin response studies. The efficiency of new high definition MII systems make it a valuable auxiliary for detecting thermal abnormalities characterized by increases or reductions in skin heat.

Every year we provide courses in Medical Thermography.

InfraredMed International
Interpretation Services

InfraredMed prepare reports for thermographic examinations of full body to intend the following areas:
  • Internal MedicineDr. Marcos Brioschi
  • Musculoskeletal (posturology and overloads)
  • Neurology
  • Head and Neck
  • Surgery
  • Rheumatology
  • Orthopedics
  • Neurosurgery
  • Segmental examinations as cold stress test for sympathetic diseases and Raynaud phenomena.
  • Brachial Artery Reactivity Testing (endothelial test)
  • And also evolutionary tracking with trend curves for wounds healing and inflammatory diseases.
