Thermography uses extremely sensitive medical infrared cameras and computers to detect these temperatures. These temperature variations are among the earliest signs of breast cancer or a precancerous state of the breast.
Thermal imaging provides a safe, simple, and painless way to identify developing breast cancer.
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 thermography is a 15 minute non invasive test of physiology. It is a valuable procedure for alerting your doctor to changes that can indicate early stage breast disease.
The benefit of breast thermography is that it offers the opportunity of earlier detection of breast disease than has been possible through breast self examination, doctor examination or mammography alone.
