Breast Thermography

When it comes to Breast cancer, early detection is the best defense. Women now have access to a unique technology that can provide them with this early warning: a procedure called Breast Thermography. Breast Thermography is an excellent screening procedure that captures images of the breast to aid in the early detection of breast irregularities. It is based on the principle of temperature variation, chemical and blood vessel activity in the area of developing breast cancer, it is almost always higher than in a normal breast. Images are captured with ultra-sensitive digital infrared camera and analyzed with computers that seek to detect the increases in surface temperature and vascular changes. Just as unique as a fingerprint, each patient has a particular infrared map of their breasts. Any modification of this infrared map on serial imaging (images taken over months to years) may constitute an early sign of an abnormality. However, if a pathology is suspected, this information is used to recommend further examinations and tests. First session provides a baseline of your thermal signature(like your fingerprint) and a subsequent session in 3 months to assures that patterns remain unchanged. Then an on going annual comparative study to continue to detect any suspicious functional (physiological) changes. All records are archived for future comparative analysis. Breast Thermography Guidelines Initial infrared scan by age 20 20-30 years of age – every 3 years 30 years of age and over – every year Testing is comfortable and safe, using neither radiation, non invasive and no compression of the breast. Breast thermographic technology has been FDA approved since 1982. It has been gaining national...
