Thermography is a state-of-the-art, and  potentially life-saving, method of detecting cancer by using thermal  imaging. The technology used to perform thermograms is considered one of  the most reliable for risk assessment and detection, especially in the  case of breast cancer — as opposed to potentially cancer-causing  mammograms. 

What are the benefits of a thermography?

A thermography offers the opportunity of earlier detection. Thermography can detect the subtle physiologic changes that accompany breast pathology, whether it is cancer, fibrocystic disease, an infection or a vascular disease. Your doctor can then plan accordingly and lay out a careful program to further diagnose and or monitor you during and after any treatment.

Breast screening without the radaition

Thermography uses non-radiation digital infrared thermal imaging to detect patterns of heat and blood flow near the surface of the body. With that said, we all know the risks of breast cancer and that having regular breast health screenings is important. Women who are at risk that are too young for regular X-ray screenings (mammography), or they have implants or fibrocystic breasts, which can make mammography less effective and in the end get  too much radiation from too many mammograms in the event of trying to be proactive. 

Baseline thermograms 

In many cases, thermography can  be useful to track changes in a condition.

Once you have a baseline  thermal reading, subsequent thermograms will

reveal temperature  deviations over time. This may provide valuable

information to you and  your physician for gauging whether a condition is

getting better or not,  and even whether a particular treatment is working

well or not.
