For your breast health…
Since its first large scale uses in the 1980s, breast thermography has developed into an important tool in the fight against breast cancer. As a safe, comfortable and extremely sensitive procedure, thermography is used to detect both a pre-cancerous state of the breast and the earliest signs of breast cancer.
Sophisticated cameras and computer systems are used to measure heat from the surface of the breasts and produce an image that can be evaluated for abnormalities. Alterations in these images are caused when cellular changes increase blood flow, thus warming the breast. Because of thermography’s extreme sensitivity, these changes may be among the earliest signs of pre-cancerous and/or cancerous tissue formation.
Early Detection Means Life
Thermography’s unique ability to see the abnormal heat changes produced by diseased breast tissue allows for extremely early detection.
What Does Breast Thermography Have To Offer?
The earliest breast cancer detection available.
Individualized breast cancer risk assessment.
An important role in breast cancer prevention.
Accurate screening for women under 40.
What Makes Breast Thermography So Unique?
*20-30 years of age every three years
*30 years of age and over every year
By maintaining close monitoring of a woman’s breast health with serial thermography, self-breast exams, clinical examinations, and other tests, a woman has a much better chance of detecting cancer at its earliest stage and preventing invasive tumor growth.
