Thermography is a safe, radiation and compression-free screening method, helpful in risk assessment and documenting select health concerns. Breast health screening is the most common; but can also be used in thyroid screening, lymphatic congestion, nervous system disorders, vascular system analysis, and neuromuscular disorders. Thermography uses a specialized digital infrared camera, recording temperature emitted from your skin capturing thermal activity, which can indicate physiological changes.
Thermography of the breast is a screening tool that shows physiological changes associated with angiogenesis, the growth of blood vessels that support tumor proliferation. A tumor needs a blood supply. That blood supply creates heat that can be seen using thermography indicating a need for lifestyle changes and further testing. Mammography is an anatomical test. A tumor is seen anatomically.
Thermography has the ability to detect the signs that a cancer may be forming, giving time to make lifestyle changes to reduce your risk factors. When used as a part of a multimodal approach, 95% of early stage cancers will be detected.
