The Benefits of Thermography

Early Detection of Breast Disease

Thermography is a FDA approved technology used to identify physiological signs that precede cancer and signal future risk. Many believe they can improve, modify and manage their risk through lifestyle changes, diet, and natural treatment. Thermography offers patients a tool for monitoring the effectiveness of these treatments.

Monitoring your hormone levels.

Studies have shown that high levels of estrogen are a key risk factor for breast disease. Thermography can offer your physician a powerful diagnostic tool to identify Breast Specific Estrogen Dominance. While vascular changes are common among women during lactation and pregnancy, identifying vascular development can be critical in establishing your risk for breast disease. By seeing your level of estrogen in your breast, you have another tool that compares and contrasts to other tools such as serum blood levels for a more accurate view of what's happening inside your body. The serum levels of hormones may not match the tissue levels. Breast tissue can have up to 50 times the estrogen concentration as serum. Salivary tests have been used to assess tissue hormone levels but do not take into account that the breasts produce estrogen locally while salivary gland tissue does not. Laboratory tests such as these are still very helpful in determining a therapeutic intervention and monitoring its effects, and should not be discounted. Thermography, however is a direct measure of breast physiology and ultimately needs to reflect the desired change.

Pain Management

Increasingly, thermography offers physicians a tool for identifying and isolating areas of the body that are causing pain. We know the region where it hurts. Thermography is one of the most effective tools that can help identify the cause of the inflammation by the heat that it produces.

Thermography is a safe and effective means to help in the diagnosis of:

  • Breast Cancer
    Diabetes
    Nervous System Disorders
    Metabolic Disorders
    Repetitive Strain Injuries
    Headaches
    Neck and Back Problems
    TMJ Conditions
    Pain Syndromes
    Arthritis
    Vascular Disorders
    Soft Tissue Injuries
    Stroke Risk
    and much much more...
