Thermography Safe Diagnostic Tool Detects Hidden Inflammation

Mammograms Can Actually INCREASE Your Risk of Breast Cancer.

Cancer is now the disease most likely to lead to your death. It passed heart disease as the #1 killer years ago. If you are a woman, breast cancer is the type of cancer you are most likely to get.  There are numerous options which can be taken to prevent breast cancer (or any cancer), including the dietary and lifestyle modifications.  However, if you already have breast cancer a radically different strategy should be considered, since the cancer could kill you before your dietary and other changes take effect.

Mammograms, regardless of what you may have heard, expose your body to radiation that can be 1,000 times greater than that from a chest x-ray — which makes you vulnerable to further risks of radiation-induced cancer which is unnecessary.  Mammography also compresses the breasts tightly and painfully, which could lead to a spread of any existing malignant cells.  There is no concrete evidence that mammograms improve breast cancer survival rates.

Inflammation is a precursor to many diseases.  Some very effective options are now available which can find inflammation — the precursor to many of these types of cancers.  It is now well-known that inflammation can be responsible for many chronic diseases such as cancer, arthritis, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and high blood pressure.  Early detection of inflammation may help you prevent negative health conditions from developing.

Thermal imaging, or thermography creates a digital map of your body which illustrates heat patterns — patterns that may detect some condition or abnormality. It uses a scanning-type infrared camera that measures your body surface temperature, presenting the information as a digitized image. Measuring inflammation through thermal imaging is a proactive, preventative method you can use for detecting disease, which significantly improves your chances for longevity and good health.

Thermal imaging is Not painful, Non-invasive, and Quick – a multi-image exam usually take less than 15 minutes. Thermal imaging has no contact with your body, thus no body part compression as what you experience with mammograms.  Thermal imaging also emits absolutely NO radiation.

How Can Thermography Really Help you?   Breast Imaging, Pain Diagnostics, Early-Stage Disease Detection

Thermograms provides early diagnosis and treatment assistance in such problems as cancer, inflammatory processes, neurological and vascular dysfunction, and musculoskeletal injury.

How are Thermographs Different From Mammograms?

Mammograms look at anatomical changes in the breast, as they detect masses or lumps in the breast tissue. Thermograms look at vascular changes in the breast, as they detect blood flow patterns, inflammation and asymmetries.

Thermograms may be particularly useful for young women who want to monitor their breast health before the recommended age of 40.

Proper breast self-exams, physician exams, and now thermography together provide you with the earliest detection system available. Thermal imaging detects the subtle physiologic changes that accompany breast pathology, whether it is cancer, fibrocystic disease, an infection or a vascular disease.

The first session provides the baseline of your “thermal signature”.

An annual  thermograms allow you to map changes in your body’s heat patterns over time. They can alert you to any deviations. Mapping annually helps you detect changes, often before disease develops.

Thermograms can be of benefit to both sexes is pain diagnosis.  Thermography is the only method available for visualizing your pain and pathology.  Thermography can assess pain and pathology anywhere in your body. It is a very useful adjunctive procedure to other diagnostic tools, such as x-ray, bone scans, and ultrasound. It is very cost effective, risk free, and provides you with instant images.  X-rays, CT scans, ultrasound, and MRI scans are all tests of “anatomy” that measure structures of your body, thermography  is unique in its ability to measure your physiological changes and metabolic processes.

The Steps of a  Thermogram:

Step 1: While you complete some simple paperwork, you will sit in a temperature-controlled room to allow your body to cool from any external conditions.

Step 2: You are positioned in front of a Thermal Imaging Camera and while the technician takes digital pictures (5-15 minutes). You will be able to see live captures on the computer screen.

Step 3: The pictures are sent out to a certified physician for analysis of 1) the amount of heat and 2) the symmetry of the heat patterns. Heat patterns may indicate inflammation, infection, or a variance from your body’s normal functions.

Step 4: You will receive a report by mail after the analysis is complete. 

Step 5: Repeat thermograms annually to monitor for changes.
