Pamela Howard, doctor of chiropractic and founder of Advanced Thermal Imaging, with offices in Columbia and Mechanicsburg, helps clients take a proactive approach to health. As a certified clinical thermographer, she utilizes Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI), also known as thermography.
According to Howard, DITI is a noninvasive, diagnostic technique that allows the examiner to visualize and quantify changes in skin surface temperature. Without coming into contact with the body, an infrared scanning device converts infrared radiation emitted from the skin’s surface into electrical impulses that are seen in color on a monitor.
“This visual image, referred to as a thermogram, graphically maps body temperature and is a biomarker to detect areas where problems may be developing,” notes Howard. “It is a tool for whole body health in both women and men.”
New clients are being accepted. Locations: 259 N. 6th St., Ste. 2, Columbia; 550 Coventry Dr., Mechanicsburg.
