Thermography is a safe, comfortable and easy procedure. This risk assessment test can help aid in early detection of breast cancer with absolutely no radiation or compression. Thermography can establish overall breast health and can be used as a whole body approach to wellness. Thermography is taking a heat map of your body and provides you with information about what needs to be evaluated. When thermography is used as an adjunctive screening to a mammogram, 95% of early stage cancers will be detected.
There are over 800 published studies in peer-reviewed journals about thermography of the breast alone. A 2008 study at the New York Presbyterian Hospital in Cornell was published in the American Journal of Surgery showing a 97% sensitivity. Thermography is looking for physiological changes happening in the body which is why receiving follow up screenings are so important. When you monitor the physiological changes occurring in your body, you have the ability to save your life, or prevent disease from developing in the first place.
