At Integrative Medical Specialists, we partner with Midwest Thermography who is dedicated to educating patients and health care providers about the benefits of thermography, its intended use and the correct methods of thermal imaging and interpretation. 

In 1982, thermography was approved by the FDA for use as adjunct testing to other clinical diagnostic procedures in the diagnosis, quantifying, and screening of differences in skin surface temperature changes.  It is a non-invasive, infrared imaging technology free of ionizing radiation that visualizes and documents temperature variations.  This allows for visualization of physiological changes in the body, such as a hormone imbalance and health risks associated with one’s lifestyle.  Imaging such as x-rays, mammography, ultrasound, and MRI’s are utilized to detect abnormal structures within the body.  Both are completely different pieces of information that are complementary in the detection process.

Clinical Thermography is used for monitoring treatment progress of many conditions including:

  • Breast Health
  • Dental Irritation
  • Dental Misalignment
  • Headache Patterns
  • Hormone Imbalance
  • Inflammatory Conditions
  • Musculoskeletal Pain
  • Spider Veins
  • Spinal Misalignment
  • Sports Injuries
  • Thyroid Problems
  • Varicose Veins

At Midwest Thermography, we provide thermal imaging services as an assessment tool to be used in addition to standard screening and/or diagnostic examinations. It is not a stand-alone examination and cannot diagnose or rule out the presence of injury or disease. When interpreting these images, we look for unusual patterns of warmth and cooling that can suggest inflammation and circulatory changes that may suggest risk for various types of injury and disease. Since the causes of most of the examination findings cannot be determined by the thermal images alone, additional examinations are always required before a final diagnosis can be made.

At Midwest Thermography, we strive to offer services with integrity, quality and excellent customer service in a safe, comfortable environment.

  • No Doctor’s Referral Needed
  • Certified Female Thermographic Technicians

All thermal scans are performed using a high resolution computerized thermal imaging camera in a controlled environment after following strict pre-examination protocols to insure the accuracy of the findings.  The impressions noted on the thermal imaging reports are based upon common presentations of typical conditions but should not be interpreted as a definitive diagnosis. Evaluation by your health care provider is necessary to determine their actual cause and significance.  

Midwest Thermography stresses the importance of reviewing your thermogram results with a licensed doctor that has experience interpreting thermography reports. Midwest Thermography partners with Integrative Medical Specialists where our doctors specialize in teaching lifestyle medicine to prevent and treat the cause of chronic health conditions.  Dr. Diehn and Dr. Guse utilize their combined expertise to direct patients in further clinical and/or diagnostic testing and assessments in order to formulate individualized health care treatment plans. They also monitor patient’s progress through additional thermographic imaging comparison studies for further lifestyle modifications.
