Thermal images of the body are difficult to analyze and interpret, generally requiring a highly trained individual to perform the task. Practitioners overcome this obstacle by outsourcing their thermogram interpretation requirements to specialized interpretation services, such as ThermEval's affiliate and ACT Examination interpretation service, Thermogram Assessment Services.
Outsourcing thermogram interpretation requirements relieves practitioners of a burdensome learning experience, but examination protocol and image acquisition techniques are topics that must be mastered by every thermographer.
These subjects are easy to learn despite assertions to the contrary by some enterprising alternative care practitioners offering costly and unnecessarily time consuming courses in capturing thermographic images of the body. Training and certification for ThermEval clients is without tuition, travel, or obligation for continued services.
ThermEval recognizes its obligation to teach practitioners how to assure images submitted for evaluation and interpretation are high quality and display all information required to maximize the accurate and objective analysis of the examination.
From the practitioner's perspective, ideally, a thermography examination should be made simple to perform with a short learning curve. ThermEval achieves this ideal with intelligent system software that makes performing a thermography examination literally as easy as 1-2-3.
ThermEval's training takes less than two hours for medical professionals and technicians to master the elements essential to conducting a credible examination. There is no need for expensive weekend training. The entire training session takes place within the framework of your practice.
Free internet-based video presentations and image review and feedback, or on-site instruction (as needed, within the USA only), ThermEval teaches how to conduct a meaningful examination with emphasis on adhering to the strict examination protocol and capturing high integrity images.
ThermEval teaches the following subjects (follow the 'Read More' links to read actual instructional material.):
Contrary to myth, there is no accredited board or accredited academic organization to certify the competency of thermographers or thermologists. When proficiency conducting thermographic examinations is consistently demonstrated by a ThermEval client, a certificate evidencing that achievement is issued by ThermEval.
