Thermography is an FDA approved non-invasive screening procedure which uses a specialized thermal camera to take infrared images of your breast, thyroid or carotid artery
It is painless, non-invasive and radiation free
Is Thermography beneficial for the breast?
It offers earlier detection of breast disease
Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging detects abnormal cellular changes that accompany breast pathology whether it is cancer, fibrocystic disease, an infection or vascular disease
30 years of research resulted in 800 peer-reviewed studies on breast thermography
“My patients are overjoyed to find out about how breast thermography can help them maintain their breast health. Not only can the test pick up abnormalities long before they manifest via mammography, but it can also detect patterns of estrogen dominance, a possible precursor to breast cancer, which we can then work to change by balancing a woman’s hormone profile naturally.”

While mammography, ultrasound, MRI, and other structural imaging tools rely primarily on finding the physical tumor, infrared THERMOGRAPHY is based on detecting the heat produced by increased blood vessel circulation and metabolic changes.
By detecting minute variations in normal blood vessel activity, infrared imaging may find thermal signs suggesting a pre-cancerous state of the breast or the presence of an early tumor that is not yet large enough to be detected by physical examination, mammography, or other types of structural imaging. Traditional Mammograms sometimes have difficulties detecting anomalies especially in women who are on hormone replacement, nursing or have fibrocystic, large, dense breasts or implants. These types of breast differences do not cause difficulties in reading digital infrared scans.
