Early detection may make a difference
Every woman, 18 or 80, is at risk for breast cancer. Breast cancer screening is occurring more frequently now than ever.
One in Eight Women Will Get Breast Cancer at Some Point in Their Life
Radiation-Free Breast Screening
In 1950, one in twenty women developed breast cancer, and usually at sixty or seventy years of age. Now breast cancer occurs in 1 of every 8 women and has involved more young women than ever before! The choices you make today to care for your breasts may determine your fate. Detecting the disease early may give you a 97% survival rate and real options for treatment. The alternative is deadly.
You have likely tried self examination of your breasts as recommended by the American Cancer Society. However, it is difficult for anyone but an expert to find a lump until it has grown to about 1 inch in diameter. This is not "early detection" as the disease is likely to have spread. Your physician may have urged you to get a mammogram, but you have hesitated because you know the compression will be painful and, despite reassurances, you are concerned about the x-ray radiation. The truth is that a mammogram is a limited test, especially in pre-menopausal women, or women taking hormone replacement therapy. X-ray radiation certainly is a real risk in developing breast cancer.
Now consider thermography.
- No compression, no physical contact
- Passive Non-Xray
- Risk Free
- No Doctor Referral
Thermography creates a digital map of your body that 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. These thermal images (called thermograms) are analyzed for abnormalities that may be signs of disease in your body. Additionally, since your body is thermally symmetrical if normal, thermal asymmetries can indicate problems.
Routine breast screening
It is recommended that all women should begin annual breast screening at age 40.
Baseline breast screening
Every woman has a unique thermal heat pattern - it is as unique as a fingerprint. The first scan provides the baseline of your unique "thermal signature". Because thermal imaging looks for change over time, it is essential that a stable baseline be established within a 3-4 month period following the first scan. This subsequent session assures that the thermal patterns remain unchanged. Once a stable baseline is established, it will be used for comparisons to all future scans so that the most subtle of tissue changes can be identified.
