What is Thermography?
Thermography is an FDA approved infra -red technology used to provide an image of the body’s physiologic responses. It is a safe energetic modality which is non-invasive, non- radio-logic, and painless . There are no contraindications to it’s use, and as it is an energetic test , it, like the MRI is a far superior screening tool for detecting early stages of disease.
By detecting energetic asymmetry , from one side of the body to the other, a physician has more information to detect early disease which has not been available with the anatomic x-ray or mammogram.
The earliest possible indication of abnormality allow for the earliest possible intervention. For breast studies, thermography detects the physiologic changes in the breast tissue that have been shown to correlate with cancerous or pre-cancerous states . Thermal imaging detects changes at a cellular level which can detect abnormal activity in the breast eight to ten years BEFORE any other test. Thermography has a sensitivity of 90% leading to detection of 95% of early stage cancers when used as apart of a comprehensive multifaceted approach with clinical exam, etc. It is especially useful in women who have dense breast tissue. It has the potential to increase long term survival rates of cancer by as much as 60%.
