Thermography can detect irregular patterns in the breast, conditions that occur often before a noticeable lump is formed. In some cases, such as inflammatory cancer, lumps are undetected by self-exam or mammogram. This is why adding thermography to your annual routine can help with early detection.
Thermal Imaging is :
- No Compression
- Emits absolutely NO radiation
Mammograms look at anatomical changes in the breast as the detect masses or lumps in the breast tissue. Thermography looks at the vascular changes in the breast, as the detect blood flow patterns, inflammation and asymmetries. The two detection methods complement each other and provide holistic approach to early detection.
Thermograms can benefit all women. They may be particularly useful for young women who want to monitor their breast health before the recommended age of 40. Breast cancer prevention should start as early as possible.
One in eight women will get breast cancer at some point in their life. Proper breast self-exams, physician exams, thermography, and mammograms, together provide the earliest detection system available.
“With a multi-modal approach, a women’s chances for early breast cancer detection are 95%”
