One week later the third scan showed that symmetry of pattern over the neck. The subject was completely pain free.

In some cases, Acupuncture can prove to be an extremely helpful form of treatment for the relief of pain, either on its own or complementary to MRT.
Acupuncture is, of course, a very ancient therapeutic practice with roots going back at least four thousand years to ancient China. Although it works in quite a different way to MRT - operating via the energy system that follows the pattern of meridians within the body - it is perfectly compatible with MRT and its results can be read equally well by the Thermographic technique.
Truly an example of modern science working with ancient art.
Soft Tissue Thermoimaging
An important part of the management of muscle pain is the availability of an adequate means of objectively recording the progress of the treatment.
In this respect, conventional X-rays are not adequate as they pass straight through the soft tissues that make up the muscles and their immediate surrounding area. They cannot, therefore, create a photographic picture.
The solution to the problem lies with Thermographic Imaging. This is a non-invasive diagnostic technique that uses an Infra Red scanner to record the heat emitted by the injured tissues. As this is greater than that of normal tissue, the progress of treatment can be objectively monitored to the satisfaction of both the patient and the practitioner.
With our equipment which uses the latest computerised technology, three coloured scans are usually sufficient. One at the start of treatment by MRT, one to check progress at roughly halfway through the course, and a final check at the end to confirm that all is well.
