Take Control of Your Breast Health with Breast Thermography
Breast Thermography is a well known, safe, radiation and compression-free method of assessing a woman’s risk for breast cancer, offering the earliest possible warning that problems may be developing in her breasts.
Thermography uses an infrared camera with high tech computer software and takes images of the temperature and vascular supply in the breasts. It is based on the scientific principle that chemical and blood vessel activity in both precancerous tissue and the area surrounding a developing breast cancer is almost always higher than in a normal breast. The base-line examination is then rated as low, medium, or high risk. Once that is established, thermography is an objective way to evaluate if therapies or lifestyle changes are working to reduce the risk of breast cancer.
On average, it takes 8-9 years of tumour growth before detection mammogram. Women no longer have to “wait for the lump” and can now take a more proactive role in their health. In addition to medical breast examinations, consider regular breast screening with thermography; the results could save your life!
Thermography is not meant to replace, standard detection methods, but when used as a multi-modal approach (clinical examinations, thermography, mammography), peer reviewed studies have shown that 95% of early stage breast cancers can be detected!
