This procedure is totally painless and there is no compression or contact with the body. The test is non invasive, uses no radiation, and is F.D.A approved.
This quick and easy test starts with your medical history being taken before you partially disrobe for the scanning to be performed. This first session provides the baseline of your “thermal signature”.
A subsequent session assures that the patterns remain unchanged.
All of your thermograms (breast images) should be kept on record and once your stable thermal pattern has been established any changes can be detected during your routine annual studies.
Thermography offers the opportunity of earlier detection of breast disease than has been possible with breast self examination, doctor examination or mammography alone.
Breast thermography is a non invasive test. This means there is no contact with the body of any kind, no radiation and the procedure is painless.
Thermography detects the subtle physiologic changes that accompany breast pathology, whether it is cancer, fibrocystic disease, an infection or a vascular disease. Your doctor can then plan accordingly and lay out a careful program to further diagnose and /or MONITOR you until other standard testing is positive. This allows for the earliest possible treatment.
Regular breast thermography screening can provide an early alert for possible referral to mammography, sonography, or MRI to improve early detection by your doctor.
It takes years for a tumor to grow, and the earliest possible indication of abnormality is needed to allow for the earliest possible treatment and intervention.
