Safer Breast Cancer Prevention
Thermal Scans can detect irregular breast patterns before a noticeable lump is formed. In fact, Thermography is the only screening tool that can detect inflammatory breast cancer, in which there are no lumps that can be detected by self exam or mammogram.
With Breast Thermography, it is important to establish a stable “baseline” for each patient. This is done by having two imaging sessions done within a 3 month period. Because active cancers double in size and heat approximately 100 days apart, changes from the first breast scan to the second will alert your doctor to request additional tests.
Initial baseline scans are used to compare all future imagine studies. If heat patterns remain unchanged, annual Thermal Scans are recommended. If there are changes seen in the initial scans or subsequent annual scans, a more frequent imaging timeline may be recommended as well as follow up with your doctor to determine why things are changing.
By adding Thermal Scans to your annual exams and breast imaging studies (mammograms, ultrasound, MRI), you can improve your chances for early breast cancer detection by 97%. All women can benefit, but it is especially useful for younger women (ages 30-50) whose denser and more vascular breast tissue makes it more difficult for mammography to be effective. With one in eight women getting diagnosed, it’s never too early to start breast cancer prevention.
