Want to know more about thermography ?

Thermography is an approach to breast screening using digital infrared imaging. This type of scan shows the function, physiology, and metabolism of breast tissue. Abnormal cells tend to be hotter in temperature because a malignant tissue mass develops a network of blood vessels to feed it. A thermogram shows the heat difference between normal breast tissue and problem areas.  It provides the earliest evidence of breast disease. In addition, thermography permits the monitoring of one’s breast health, while seeking to improve one’s overall health. Check out another article here articleBCW

* Digital Infrared Imaging (Thermography) does not replace an ultrasound, MRI or a mammogram. These diagnostic imaging tools have their own place in one’s health care. Mammograms show the physical anatomy of the breast. They are useful to detect a mass once it has already developed, but it cannot tell a patient if there is a tumor starting to form. The only definitive diagnosis for breast cancer is a biopsy. All other methods are investigative and adjunctive diagnostic tools.
