It is recommended that you have a thermography scan once a year as a mammogram alternative. Like mammograms, thermography does not diagnose breast cancer, but rather thermography records image changes in tissue due to a variety of causes. While mammography detects anatomical changes, thermography images physiological changes that occur much earlier than anatomical changes, making it easier to receive earlier detection of dysfunction. There is no exposure to radiation or painful compression as there is with mammograms. Those that have had a mastectomy, those with a history of breast cancer, and those with breast implants, can have thermographic scans as often as they like.
Have you heard of breast thermography, but are not sure what it is or how it works? Breast thermography is a 20-minute non-invasive imaging of your physiology that is painless and does not use radiation. It records the temperature changes in the body. This is excellent for women of all ages, but particularly for women with dense breast tissue, or small breasts, making mammograms less effective. Breast thermography images the chest area to the base of the neck, including underneath the arms. It works for women with all size breasts and takes about 20 minutes.
We offer detection and imaging of heat, which is not possible with a doctor examination, self-examination, or a mammogram alone. We also do whole body scans at our facility, which takes about 40 minutes. This can help when determining the cause of pain. Our camera is designed for medical use, calibrated to read body temperatures to within 1/100 of a degree, and records over 80,000 temperatures with each image. A change in tissue temperature is one of the first signs of disease, which is why dysfunction shows up so much earlier with a thermographic scan. Thermography can detect even the most subtle of temperature changes. Temperatures in a healthy body are symmetrical. When there are differences in temperatures from right to left, we recommend you see your health care professional for evaluation. Our reports are written by board certified medical doctors and will be mailed to you within 5-7 days after your scan.
