Nava’s thermography service is designed to complement traditional screening and diagnostic tools to:
Also known as Digital Infared Thermal Imaging, this non-invasive technique is used primarily to monitor breast health and musculoskeletal health by way of infared imaging rather than radiation. Thermograms are both safe and comfortable for clients, causing no discomfort or pain. Our thermographic screening services are available at locations throughout Maryland and DC, including Columbia, MD, Chevy Chase, MD, North Bethesda, MD, and Washington, DC.
Notable for its early detection and disease prevention capabilities, thermography can potentially detect signs of pre-cancerous cellular growth well in advance of standard screening procedures. For that reason, it has become an increasingly well-accepted screening tool used to monitor breast health, and has been FDA approved for use in conjunction with mammography, since the 1980s.
At Nava, we highly recommend that clients use thermography in addition to having clinical exams and routine mammograms. By no means does thermography replace mammography; rather it is considered a complimentary, and highly-beneficial, imaging technique.
Traditional mammography uses x-rays to generate an image based on tissue density. They tend to provide structural information for use in detecting the location of possible abnormalities. Thermography however, provides functional information about breast tissue. The results may help to show an increased risk factor before and structural abnormalities appear.
In addition to conducting breast thermography, Nava offers whole body scans, as well as jaw & cranial scans. Nava recommends that clients receive a scan annually, or more often, as needed. Having regular scans establishes a basis for comparison and helps clinicians identify cellular changes that may indicate that further screening is necessary.
You can rest assured that in addition to monitoring your cellular wellness effectively using thermography, Nava’s clinicians will help ensure both your comfort and privacy in a warm, welcoming environment.
For an hour or less annually, our thermograms are worth your investment of time. A whole body scan can be completed in 60 minutes, while the breast thermography scan lasts just 30 minutes, and the jaw scan takes only 15 minutes.
