Thermography

Digital infrared thermal imaging (DITI) is another identification for thermography. It consists of a series of pictures taken by digital camera- without pressure, touch or radiation. Pictures may be taken of most areas of the body for interpretation by a group of 37 medical doctors in the electronic medical imagining system. BRAS specializes in breast thermogaphy and education of breast health, but we do take other thermograms as requested. See list of other indications for a thermographic evaluation below.

According to Dr. Thomas Hudson, “Thermography can detect physiological changes associated with breast cancer while it’s still at the cellular level – before it becomes visible on a mammogram.” This thermal imaging system is also safe, painless and radiation-free.

Thermography is also a great tool to monitor breast health because it gives indications of problems before there is a diagnosed cancer that can be changed and monitored. Examples include estrogen dominance, lymphatic congestion, and even allergies that cause inflammation. Tulsa Breast Center strives to talk about these ideas out during an initial screening and give women easy cost-effective, drug-free ways to make breast health changes.

Mammograms show structure using compression and radiation. A mammogram is considered the “gold standard” by the medical community. It is excellent to pinpoint a mass and is always required before surgery. A tissue biopsy is then needed to make sure a lump is not cancerous.

The latest advice from the U.S. Preventative Task Force in November 2009 is that a mammogram is “a very private decision between a woman and her doctor.” The task force suggested screenings every two years after the age of 50.

The easy answer is no, but it is more complex than that. Both systems serve a different purpose. Using thermography and mammography together can decrease breast cancer risks. Thermography is better used for prevention and protecting breast health in many ways. Mammography is used to diagnose a specific problem.

Cancer cells double every ninety days, so the second thermogram series provides a baseline. The United Breast Cancer Foundation may reimburse up to $300 for two thermograms three months apart. Follow their lead, do not have one thermogram and base your breast health on half of the equation.

United Breast Cancer Foundation Breast Screening Program offers free or low-cost breast screenings to women and men nationwide. UBCF covers various screening technologies such as mammography, ultrasound and thermography. Click here for their program guidelines and eligibility questionnaire.

Our specialty is breast health. We spend 30 minutes with you sharing information, woman to woman, about simple, low-cost, effective, natural, drug-free ideas on protecting your breast health. You are not going to a thermographer who is trained to snap pictures as quickly possible. Tulsa Breast Center is an educational support program for you.

This is an earlier interpretation service. The black and white pictures are simply a setting or function of the camera. The same picture can be black and white or color. The color is important as the medical interpretation service is using the temperature variances for visibly seeing hotter spots in the body. A service only using black and white would not be using the full ability of the thermal cameras and their heat seeking concept. Think bombs to busts! Our new technologies came from the smart bombs and their thermal capabilities used extensively during the last two war conflicts.

Yes, you can eat and drink the day of your scan. No diet changes are necessary. Try to limit fluid intake about 1 hour prior to your scan so you don’t feel the need to stop the scan multiple times to use the restroom.

The Full Body scan should take roughly 45mins. These times are estimates. We advise planning to be at the facility a minimum of 30 minutes if your schedule is tight.

Please arrive at the imaging center at least 10 minutes prior to your scan time. This will allow you to review and sign your pre-completed paperwork, and be on time of your scheduled appointment.

  • Do not smoke for two hours before the tests.
  • Do not use lotions or powder on your breasts or surrounding areas on the day of the test.
  • Avoid sun exposure on the day of test.
  • Tulsa Breast Center specifically asks that you do not shave under your arms the day of the test.
  • No diet changes are necessary.
  • No medicine changes are necessary.

We use Meditherm, a medical camera designed specifically for clinical applications. Meditherm maximizes the potential of thermography for the best possible diagnosis and treatment by delivering a higher degree of sensitivity and specificity than other systems.

  • Only thermography system specifically designed and calibrated for optimal operation in the narrow temperature range of metabolic heat.
  • Meditherm has the largest network of doctors and technicians worldwide and is the industry leader with the oldest established infrastructure covering manufacture, marketing, training and after sales support.
  • Has the quickest turnaround of reports.
  • Has the most accurate reading because each pixel is an individually referenced measurement which can be compared to any other pixel within an image and also image to image, and comparisons over time.
  • Efficient thermoelectric cooling of the cameras and auto correction with unique agile processing technology of the BRAS cameras eliminates the problems of thermal drift suffered by other cameras.
  • Can focus on regions of interest from 2 inches to infinity, while detecting 100% of the body’s emitted infrared radiation.
  • Permits less critical protocols in clinics without sacrificing accuracy and reliability.

This thermal imaging system is also safe, painless and radiation-free.

Please make sure to bring your completed intake form, or arrive at the imaging center at least 10 minutes prior to your scan time to review and sign your pre-completed paperwork.
