Thermography is a state-of-the-art, non-invasive, painless clinical test with no radiation exposure lasting 15 minutes, giving women of all ages the opportunity to increase their chances of detecting breast disease at an early stage.
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.
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.
Thermography can detect changes that may indicate various conditions, such as:
- Fibrocystic disease.
- An infection.
- Vascular disease.
The test cannot confirm that cancer is present. It can only show that there are changes that may need further investigation.
This test is designed to improve chances for detecting fast-growing, active tumors in the intervals between mammographic screenings or when mammography is not indicated by screening guidelines for women under 50 years of age.
