Breast thermography is a non-contact, private and non-invasive procedure. The value of thermography as a study tool is its ability to measure skin temperature changes. It offers men and women information that no other procedure can provide regarding breast health.
Breast thermography is not a replacement for or alternative to mammography or any other form of breast imaging. Breast thermography, mammography or breast ultrasounds are complementary procedures; one test does not replace the other. Breast thermography is meant to be used in addition to other tests or procedures.
Thermography captures and records temperature variations on the skin, which provides vital information directly influenced by complex metabolic and vascular activity. This information does not in any way suggest diagnosis and/or treatment. Studies show that the patient benefits when multiple tests are used together. This multimodal approach includes breast self-examinations, physical breast exams by a doctor, mammography, ultrasound, MRI, thermography, and other tests that may be ordered by your doctor.
A reported “Elevated Level of Concern” finding does not indicate that it is suspicious for any specific disease. However, any suspicious finding will be accompanied with a strong and intentional recommendation for further clinical evaluation. If you detect a lump or any other change in your breast before your next thermogram study, consult your doctor immediately.
Notice to clients presenting with previously diagnosed cancer: Thermography interpretation in your report does not include information or recommendations related to the measured changes of disease beyond skin temperature changes and patterns. As there is no single known test capable of monitoring all biological influences of the complex disease generally diagnosed as cancer, continued monitoring with available additional testing as recommended by your personal physician is strongly advised.
Your Thermographer may not be a licensed medical professional. Your Thermographer cannot interpret your images or advise or prescribe to you based on your images. Your thermographer can ask health history questions as well as educate you on general breast health.
