Bellis Chiropractic, in Elizabethville, has partnered with Nizza Straub, a certified clinical thermologist and owner of Picture Your Health Thermal Imaging, LLC, to offer thermal imaging, a radiation-free, pain-free, non-invasive, FDA-approved screening tool that is useful in the early detection and monitoring of breast disorders and other diseases and physical injuries involving inflammation, nerve damage and blood flow problems by showing thermal abnormalities present in the body.
Thermography of the breast area can help female patients detect early warning signs that breast cancer may be developing. According to Dr. Brett Bellis, it takes 8 to 10 years for a dime-size tumor to be detected by mammogram. Digital infrared imaging can provide the first signal that such a possibility is developing. Scans can be taken of the entire body, or just areas of concern. The digitized images are encrypted for privacy, stored in a computer and then sent electronically to a team of thermologists (certified doctors) for interpretation and reporting.
Location: 129 Locust St., Elizabethville. For more information, call 717-362-1288, 717-576-0236 or visit Picture-Your-Health.com.
