Thermography: Advanced Medical Thermal Imaging, better known as Thermography, is a state-of-the-art FDA approved, non-invasive, radiation-free imaging technology that creates a digital map of your body, illustrating heat patterns that may detect some condition or abnormality using a scanning-type infrared camera that measures your body’s surface temperature. X-rays, mammography, ultrasound, and MRIs are all tests that only provide information on the structures found within the body, and may miss such things as active inflammation or angiogenesis (increased blood supply to growing tumor). Thermal changes are often the earliest sign of vascular disease, immune dysfunction, diabetes, and thyroid dysfunction. It is also the earliest indication of systemic inflammation, a precursor to many diseases—including cancer.
Breast thermography is a 15 minute non-invasive test for alerting your doctor to changes that offers the opportunity of earlier detection of breast disease than has been possible through breast self examination, doctor examination or mammography alone.
