Early Detection Saves Lives
Breast thermography has developed into an important tool in the fight against breast cancer. As a safe, comfortable, and sensitive procedure, thermography is used to detect infrared markers that may suggest some of the earliest signs of breast cancer.
Thermography uses sophisticated infrared cameras and computer systems to image heat patterns from the surface of breasts. Alterations in these images are caused when cellular changes increase blood flow (angiogenesis); thus, warming the breast. These thermovascular changes may be among the earliest signs of breast cancer.
