As the only modality capable of identifying a hormonal imbalance in the breasts, thermography uses an infrared thermograph camera to detect estrogen dominance, a potential risk factor for the development of breast cancer, fibrocystic breasts, uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts.
Early Intervention without Radiation
Unlike X-Ray, sonography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and virtually all other modern medical imaging modalities, designed to capture anatomical information, medical infrared technology detects physiological changes of the body in real time imaging, without contact, compression, or pain.
The distribution of temperature in your body is widely affected by pathological abnormalities. With medical thermography, we receive essential information regarding inflammatory conditions by detecting temperature changes
Answering your most asked questions so you can be prepared.
What is Digital Infrared Breast Thermography?
Digital Infrared Breast Thermography is a sensitive, non-invasive method of effectively screening for early functional changes in breast tissue. And, it’s listed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as an accepted diagnostic procedure for breast disease.
How does it work?
An infrared thermograph camera is used to take detailed measurements of skin temperature from a distance of five to eight feet. The thermograms are then analyzed for abnormalities or asymmetries that may be signs of disease in your body.
What are the benefits for women?
- Safe, easy, pain-free, and radiation-free
- Provides a color-coded temperature “fingerprint”
- Identifies fibrocystic tissue disease and tumor inflammation within the body
- Effectively and safely screens dense breasts and women with implants
- Useful for evaluating chest wall size after breast surgery
- Effective for breasts of all sizes
- Creates opportunities for early intervention!
How can athletes benefit from medical thermography?
Since athletes are exposed to physical stress in training and during competition season, overuse reactions and “minor traumas” are very frequent. Medical thermography provides proactive, early detection to avoid overuse injuries.
