Advanced Medical Thermography Course (The Infrared Imaging Clinic Evaluation)
Blended Medical Thermography Learning: Integrated Online and Hands On Course
TABLE OF CONTENTS
The human being temperature is vital sign that usually is measured at only one site (axillary, tympanic, oral, rectal, esophagic) but it can done with numerous points, as thermography, to monitor the body thermoregulation and related diseases. The last one, thermography, provides complex and ample results for the diagnosis of diverse diseases due the body map of innumerous data registered and analyzed at real time. Therefore it maps all the superficial thermal distribution and monitor the vasomotor activity of the neuroimmune and vascular biologics events. The classics Physiology, Immunology and Medical Pathology´s textbooks are copious of descriptions of these biological actions in the most diseases. However, in the clinical practice many times unnoticed dues its inadequate detection and diagnostic interpretation. This module gives the physiological and anatomical basis for interpretation.
There are some general medical thermography immutable principles that never will change and others will vary just a little. The only consideration nowadays is that they are assisted by the modern technical and informatics new resources.This training module will be focused and how to implant correctly this method in the clinical setting.
We summarize and discuss the general main indications of actual medical thermography recognized by several scientific medical entities. Medical infrared imaging can recognize and document a wide range of Medicine applications that include: neuropathic pain diseases, tissue inflammations, post-stroke abnormalities, spinal cord injuries, rheumatologic disorders, sports injuries, poor extremity vascular perfusion, low back pain causes and vasomotor changes related to chronic pain conditions as myofascial, fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndromes and others.
Hands on course at different countries
This module comprises practical hands on training with the medical doctor instructor in which students can put into practice everything learned in previous online modules. This module is held in different locations worldwide according to the number of students enrolled.
It is an optional module and the value and description is carried out directly with the local organizer of the course as links below. The student can perform the online modules before or after the hands on course at any time.
All the courses are certificated by ABRATERM/IBTM (all specialized in Medical Thermology and Thermography from Sao Paulo University Medicine School, Neurology Department – FMUSP).
