Thermography is FDA registered and is designed to make imaging a delightful, streamlined experience, while providing pain-free early detection. Often inflammation shows up before a noticeable lump.

Thermography

“Radiation from a mammogram is 1000 times greater than that from a chest x-ray. It accumulates over time, with ten x-rays increasing your breast cancer risk by 10%.

Mechanical compression of your breast – as well as a biopsy – can dislocate and spread existing malignant cells. A breast cancer growth has grown for 7-8 years and reached 4-10 billion cells before a mammogram can detect it. This is not early detection!” *

Benefits of Thermography

  • Safe, easy, and pain free
  • No radiation exposure – FDA registered.
  • No compression of breast tissue
  • Detects changes in breast tissue from the smallest of tumors.
  • Provides information about inflammatory breast cancer (IBC)
  • Entire breast can be imaged
  • Provides information about fibrocystic breast disease or tumor inflammation
  • Effectively and safely screens breasts with implants
  • Useful for evaluating chest wall after breast surgery
  • Effective for breasts of all sizes
  • Creates opportunities for early intervention

Quick Results!

Results are reported quickly by certified doctors and include all color images taken during your test.

The first session provides the baseline of your “thermal signature”. A session 3 months later checks to see if the patterns remain unchanged, with yearly thermograms suggested thereafter. Early detection provides time for preventive measures far in advance of what is seen with traditional mammograms.

What is Thermography?

Thermography is a technique that involves the use of infrared imaging to detect and visualize the temperature distribution of a surface or object. It relies on the fact that all objects emit infrared radiation as a function of their temperature. Thermographic cameras, or infrared cameras, are used to capture this radiation and create images based on the temperature differences.

  1. Temperature Measurement: Thermography allows for non-contact temperature measurements. By capturing the infrared radiation emitted by an object, the camera can create a temperature map of the surface.
  2. Applications:
    • Medical Imaging: In medical applications, thermography is used for diagnostic purposes, such as detecting abnormal patterns of heat in the body. It can be employed in breast cancer screening, vascular imaging, and other medical fields.
  3. Infrared Cameras: Specialized cameras are used for thermography. These cameras can detect infrared radiation and convert it into visible images or thermal patterns. The resulting images are called thermograms.
  4. Limitations: While thermography is a powerful tool, it has some limitations. It is sensitive to environmental conditions like ambient temperature and humidity. Additionally, the accuracy of temperature measurements can be influenced by factors such as the emissivity of the material being observed.

In summary, thermography provides valuable information by visualizing temperature variations, allowing for early detection of issues and informed decision-making.
