A lifesaving risk assessment technology for the 21st Century

What if…

…there was a way to provide an early risk marker for breast cancer?

…there was a better screening approach that combined multiple tests, including a technology that reflects the early cancerous process itself?

…there was a technology that could find areas of inflammation in advance of symptoms?

…there was a tool that had the possibility to find the true cause of your pain so that you could get the treatment you need?

…there was a test that could give an athlete an edge in sports injury management?

That technology is here, and it’s called clinical thermography.

Hot Shots Thermography is privileged to provide breast thermography along with thermography of the body as an aid in the care of your health. We are proud to serve the greater Sandpoint community. 

If you are a physician, we are here to help you care for your patients. Computerized infrared imaging may aid you in the differential diagnosis process. The technology is designed to complement your examination procedures and assist you in the treatment process. Computerized infrared imaging is FDA approved as an adjunctive procedure.

What is Thermography?

Thermography, or infrared imaging, entails the use of specialized cameras that are sensitive to the detection of electromagnetic energy (light) in the infrared wavelengths (heat). As such, these imagers serve as a remote sensing system; nothing touches or harms the object under investigation. When the camera’s detectors sense the incoming infrared heat an electrical signal is produced that generates a visible image display.

State of the Art Technology

In healthcare, thermography incorporates the use of high-resolution infrared cameras and sophisticated computer processing to produce a topographic heat map display which bears a resemblance to the visible image of the body. Modern computerized thermography produces an accurate and reproducible high-resolution image that can be analyzed both qualitatively and quantitatively for minute changes in skin surface heat emissions. These changes in heat act as biomarkers that may warn of an underlying problem.
With regard to breast thermography, studies show that the earliest breast cancer detection is realized when multiple tests are used together (multimodal imaging). What we are promoting is a multimodal approach. This multimodal approach includes breast self-examinations, physical breast exams by a doctor, thermography, screening imaging, and other tests that may be ordered by your doctor.
