7 REASONS TO USE BREAST THERMOGRAPHY

-

Thermography is a safe screening approach to proactive breast health. Thermography Clinic Inc. is the leader in breast thermography with over 35 locations worldwide. 

REASON 7 – RISK ASSESSMENT

Someone who is assessed as high risk will be asked to escalate to physical examination and structural testing to make sure that they get a full and complete evaluation.

REASON 6 – LONG-TERM TRACKING

Once a baseline condition is established, any future changes can be detected and tracked to determine if the condition is stable, improving, or deteriorating.

REASON 5 – ALL SHAPES AND CONDITIONS

Thermography can be used to test all women regardless of breast size or shape, as well as women with breast implants, or a fibrocystic condition.

REASON 4 – MONITORING

Thermography is crucial at assessing the effectiveness of treatment, as well as any hormonal influences and their effect on breast health.

REASON 3 – EARLY WARNING SYSTEM

When assessing the risks involved with breast cancer, Thermography is a highly predictive tool which provides you with an early warning system.

REASON 2 – MEASUREMENT OF FUNCTION

Thermography can detect physiological changes – how your breast functions – usually many years before any structural change takes place.

REASON 1 – 100% SAFE

Thermography measures naturally-emitted body heat. No radiation is involved, it is completely non-invasive and it poses absolutely no risk or pain to the patient. Since a mammography test can sometimes be inconclusive (a “detectable size” may take 8 to 9 years to develop) it makes more sense to first test using thermography, and then to follow up with other tests (such as mammography) for those deemed to be “high risk”. At this point the best approach would be to first evaluate the reasons why a person is “high risk”, then develop a preventive program to help reduce their risk factors. This makes much more sense than screening women indiscriminately, which may cause pain or harm, as well as confusion and fear due to inconclusive or “false-positive” results. ~
