What is thermography? Breast Thermography is a radiation-free state-of- the-art screening procedure that captures heat images of the breast to aid in the early detection of cancer and fibrocystic breast disease. As a tumor grows it develops a blood supply that emits heat that is detected on a modern infrared device as seen below. Thermography can establish overall breast health and is an excellent test for assessing fibrocystic breasts and response to treatment. In the images below the heat surrounding the nipple emits excess heat, a function of angioneogenesis.
In addition to breast screening, we can also perform screenings for full body thermal imaging, thyroid issues, hormonal imbalances, abdominal inflammation, cerebrovascular, systemic conditions, spinal, lymphatic dysfunction and dental.
Thermography has been used for breast cancer detection since 1956. It was cleared by the FDA in 1982 as an adjunctive procedure for breast cancer screening. There are over 800 published studies in peer-reviewed journals about thermography of the breast alone. Most of these articles show the success rate of breast thermography greater than 90%.
A very important area of consideration is the neglected category of women under the age of 40. There are over 20,000 case of breast cancer in this age group each year in the USA. When cancer occurs in a younger woman it is usually a much more aggressive form, and less likely to respond to treatment. There is currently no routine screening test for women under 40, and thermography is a perfect test for these women as there is no radiation from the exam. Annual exams are recommended starting at 20 years of age.
