Thermography, a cutting-edge screening technique, offers a radiation-free solution for detecting temperature variations in the body. By analyzing these temperature differences, it becomes possible to identify not only pathological processes reflected by increased heat, but also neurological processes indicated by excessive cold (hypothermia). Widely recognized by medical consensus groups, thermography serves as a valuable tool for assessing overall breast health alongside clinical breast exams and screening mammography.
Thermography, unlike other imaging techniques, does not involve any radiation. It offers a non-invasive way to visualize changes in the functioning of structures within the body. This unique approach complements X-rays, mammography, ultrasounds, and MRIs, which mainly provide information on the structure itself. What makes thermography even more remarkable is its ability to detect certain breast cancer tumors that may go unnoticed by other imaging options, thanks to the increased heat they generate. Typically, about 70% of breast cancer tumors are detected after they have grown to at least 30 mm. However, by utilizing thermography, it becomes possible to visualize breast disease before the tumor reaches that size. This early detection could potentially prevent tumors from growing to a size where they can be detected by other imaging techniques.
Toxins and excessive hormones can generate an increase in heat within the breast, potentially indicating the presence of breast disease. By identifying areas of angiogenesis, characterized by an increase in blood vessels supplied by a growing tumor, thermography allows for the monitoring of these heat patterns over time. This monitoring method not only promotes overall wellness but also complements other imaging techniques, health approaches, and treatments to optimize your health. Thermography has gained recognition as a screening test specifically for women under the age of 40, a population often overlooked by traditional breast cancer screenings. As a result, thermography offers a viable testing option for this age group.
