This whole-body thermometry system employs the science of regulation thermography, 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 that were performed by Dr. David Hickey, radiologist and a member of the Alfa Medical Team, in his Dallas-based imaging center.
Feedback provided by AlfaSight™ allows physicians to make more accurate and real-time assessments of the root cause of a disease and accompanying factors. More focused laboratory or imaging tests can then be prescribed for a more efficient and cost-effective approach to diagnosis.
AlfaSight™ also recognizes trends in the body that can assist in the practice of preventive medicine.
Specific areas of physiological dysfunction that can be identified include:
- Abnormalities of the female breast
- Peripheral vascular disease
- Musculoskeletal disorders
- Extracranial cerebral and facial vascular disease
- Abnormalities of the thyroid gland
- Various neoplastic and inflammatory conditions
Parallel disease factors accompanying many conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, cognitive disorders and viral diseases are also identified. Early stage detection of these factors is critical for effective treatment and faster recoveries.
