The 3 Keys for Premier Thermography

Choosing Vital Thermal Imaging for your infrared scans will provide you with results based on the 3 essential factors:

  • Thermal Imaging must be conducted by utilizing a strict and proven protocol. Because of the sensitivity of the equipment images must be taken in a highly controlled environment, at precise angles and only after a client has fully followed the pre-procedure checklist and acclimated to the room temperature.

  • The Thermal Camera must be state of the art to detect the slightest temperature differentials, such cameras cost upwards of $10,000 and must sync with specific IR interpretation computer software to insure accuracy and precision.

  • The interpretation of the scans must be conducted by a doctor certified in analysis of thermal scans. Vital Thermal Imaging is proud to be partnering with one of the top experts in the world for your scan interpretations.

In the 21st century people have learned to actively seek out healthy alternatives to the dangerous and toxic methodology of the past. Organic foods, regular exercise, pure water, healthy lifestyle are just some examples but medicine has been very slow at keeping pace. Today medical drugs are as toxic as ever and many of the diagnostic techniques are outright dangerous.  

Infrared thermal imaging offers a completely safe, non-invasive, no compression, no radiation method for assessing the health of your breasts.  It does not replace mammogram as a method for diagnosis of disease but it certainly gives tremendous insight into the health of your breasts and is analyzed by a Doctor of Chiropractic/Board Certified Thermographer.  

Carol Fowler C.T.T.

My decision to become a Clinical Thermographic Technician was based on my own personal experience with battling health issues and suffering from undetected and undiagnosed endometriosis for many years. I experienced first hand the frustration of not knowing what was happening in my own body and the inability to heal myself as a result.  In addition, I have watched some of my closest friends lose loved ones to cancer after fighting long battles that may have been prevented by early detection of the disease.

After a career of over 30 years in real estate marketing, I made the decision to shift my focus and pursue a career in a field that utilizes this life saving technology.  

Making a difference in the lives of people is my passion and my life long pursuit. 

I am a both a Clinical Thermographic Technician performing breast cancer risk assessment screenings for my patients and also a Certified Equine Thermographer who performs full body thermograms on horses.  I have watched this technology effectively and accurately locate injury and disease in a horse and immediately improve the quality of a horses life.  I have eased the minds of horse owners who have tried everything to help their animals and helped horses that would have otherwise suffered in silence.

I am excited to bring this amazing technology to animals and people alike and I am proud to be partnered with some of the world's most respected and experienced thermologists in fields of veterinary and clinical health.

interpretation Partner

Dr. William Amalu, Board Certified Thermologist



Vital Thermal Imaging is honored to partner with world leading Thermologist, Dr. William C. Amalu, DC, DABCT, DIACT, FIACT    

Similar to a radiologist who reads x-rays for outside offices, Dr. Amalu is a board certified thermologist who also reads thermograms from certified technicians. He currently provides thermogram interpreting services for many imaging centers worldwide.

In his capacity as a board member of the International Academy of Clinical Thermology, Dr. Amalu instructs physicians worldwide in the science and interpretation of thermal imaging. He also lectures worldwide in both university and public venues to increase awareness and utilization of this lifesaving procedure.

Dr. Amalu's personal experience with breast cancer has left him with a determination to do all he can to prevent other women from going through this terrible disease. On October 6, 1999, he lost his step-sister Robin to a 5 year battle with breast cancer. At the age of 47, she left two young daughters and the love of her life. She had faithfully listened to her doctor and had both physical exams and mammograms as recommended. Her mammograms did not detect her tumors, first in one breast and then later in the other. The sizes of the lumps were large, easily felt, and not detected on the images. What if breast thermography had been readily available to Robin? If we could make breast thermography available to women on a broader scale, the face of this horrible disease would be changed worldwide.
