Thermography

 

Increase your chances of detecting Breast Cancer in its earliest stages

Breast thermography is a diagnostic procedure that images the breasts to aid in the early detection of breast cancer. State of the art Breast Thermography uses ultra-sensitive infrared cameras and sophisticated computers to detect, analyze, and produce high-resolution diagnostic images of these temperature and vascular changes. The procedure is both comfortable and safe using no radiation or compression. By carefully examining changes in the temperature and blood vessels of the breasts, signs of possible cancer or pre-cancerous cell growth may be detected up to 10 years prior to being discovered using any other procedure. This provides for the earliest detection of cancer possible.

The procedure is based on the principle that the temperature in both pre-cancerous tissue and the area surrounding a developing breast cancer is almost always higher than in the normal breast. Since pre-cancerous and cancerous masses are highly metabolic tissues, they need an abundant supply of nutrients to maintain their growth. In order to do this they increase circulation to their cells by sending out chemicals to keep existing blood vessels open, recruit dormant vessels, and create new ones (neoangiogenesis). This process results in an increase in regional surface temperatures of the breast.
Digital Infrared Thermal Imagining “DITI” is a non invasive test of physiology. It is a valuable procedure for alerting your doctor to changes that can indicate early stage breast disease. DITI detects the subtle physiologic changes that accompany breast pathology, whether it is cancer, fibrocystic disease, an infection or vascular disease. Unlike mammography, breast thermography has the procedure of non invasive, no radiation, no pain or compression, it detects cancer up to 10 years, has no contact with the body, it’s simple and quick. All of your thermograms are kept on record and once your stable thermal pattern has been established any changes can be detected during routine annual studies.
