The Benefits of Thermography
Did you know that there is an alternative to mammograms? A tool for early cancer detection where you can avoid being exposed to radiation?
It is called Thermography.
What is Thermography and why is it better?
Thermography (also called infrared thermography, or IRT) is a state-of-the-art, and potentially life-saving method of detecting cancer by using thermal imaging. It is considered one of the most reliable methods for risk assessment and detection, especially in the case of breast cancer. This way of testing can offer earlier detection of abnormal cellular activities and suspected tumor growths. It is estimated that up to 95% of breast cancer cases can be overcome when the cancer is detected in its earliest stages. For all cancers early detection is key!
Over the past 20 years, thermography has come a very long way, and today doctors rely on these ultra-sensitive, high-resolution digital infrared cameras to track thermal (heat) patterns. It is a 15 minute, non-invasive test that is painless, requires no compression, and there is no radiation (potentially cancer causing) or contact involved. If cancer is suspected and later confirmed, the doctor and patient can come up with the best cancer treatment plan.
Thermography works by detecting heat that is produced by increased blood vessel circulation and metabolic changes associated with tumor growth. It may find thermal signs suggesting a pre-cancerous state of the breast or other area and can even pick up subtle changes in the body that can signify other lurking problems. This test is both precise and sensitive, and can be performed years before conventional mammograms are ordered. This allows doctors to identify patients who are at a higher risk for cancer development, so they can be monitored more carefully.
The American Cancer Society estimates that 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer are diagnosed every year among US women alone. That’s one in eight women! It is comforting to know that there is a safe tool that can be used in risk assessment for breast cancer and more.
