You may be wondering what breast thermography is. Breast thermography is a quick, non-invasive test of breast physiology. It is popular in the US, France, Sweden, and Japan in assessing breast health. The procedure works to measure the heat (infrared radiation) which is constantly radiating away from the surface of the human skin.
Why breast thermography?
The main benefit of breast thermography is that it offers the opportunity of earlier detection of breast disease. The treatment is more effective than breast self-examination, doctor examination, or mammography alone.
The procedure works by detecting subtle physiological changes that accompany breast pathology. This could include cancer, fibrocystic disease, or an infection or vascular disease.
Benefits of breast thermography
Breast thermography is extremely safe. It has been clearly demonstrated to be a valuable and safe early risk marker of breast pathology. Breast thermography can be an excellent case management tool for the ongoing monitoring and treatment of breast disease when used under carefully controlled clinical protocols.
Other benefits include:
- no radiation
- no contact
- low cost
