WHAT DOES BREAST THERMOGRAPHY OFFER?
THE EARLIEST BREAST CANCER DETECTION AVAILABLE
Breast Thermography has the ability to warn women (or men) up to 8 – 10 years before any other method currently available that a cancer may be forming. This allows prompt diagnosis and early treatment before invasive tumor growth has occurred.
Radiation causes damage to DNA and chromosomes. There is no “safe” level of radiation according to the Nuclear Regulatory Agency.
Mammography requires compression of a woman’s breasts and this is often uncomfortable or even painful. There is no body contact with Thermography.
Thermography is as accurate as mammography at 90%. It is more accurate in younger women with dense breast tissue, overweight women, and in women with fibrocystic breasts or breast implants. It also evaluates all areas of the breasts and regional lymph nodes, whereas mammography misses portions of the breast tissue. Approximately 1/3 of all breast cancers occur in women under 45, where mammography is not recommended.
ESTROGEN EFFECT ON BREASTS SHOWN
The single greatest risk factor in the development of breast cancer is if a woman has an estrogen dominant effect on her breasts. Thermography can provide information on estrogen effect that a doctor can use to treat and decrease a woman’s breast cancer risk. Even more important, Thermography can demonstrate whether treatment is having a beneficial effect.
WHAT DOES THERMOGRAPHY OFFER FOR EVALUATION OF PAIN?
THERMOGRAPHY VISUALIZES PAIN
Thermography is the only method currently available for visualizing pain in the body. It can assess pain and pathology anywhere in the body.
Radiation causes damage to DNA and chromosomes. Radiation is a known causal factor in the development of some cancers. Thermography does not use radiation and is risk-free.
A thermogram of the entire body can be taken. This is not safely possible with CT scans due to high radiation exposure.
FILLS IN THE GAPS IN DIAGNOSIS OF PAIN OR INJURY
X-ray, CT, Ultrasound and MRI are all tests that look at anatomy or structure. Thermography is complementary to these tests and is unique in that it looks for physiological change. It can visualize painful areas when X-ray or MRI has not demonstrated the cause, such as in a hairline fracture, soft tissue injury, or neck pain from a whiplash.
