Radiation-Free Body Scanning for Disease
Approved by the FDA in 1982 as an adjunct breast screening procedure, breast thermography offers women information that no other procedure can provide. The use of Digital Infrared Imaging (DII) is based on the principle that metabolic activity and vascular circulation in both pre-cancerous tissue and the area surrounding a developing breast cancer is almost always higher than in normal breast tissue.
Thermography is also useful for detecting other disease in their early stages:
- Heart disease
- Increased stroke risk
- Gum disease
- Thyroid disease
- Abdominal disorders
Infrared Breast Thermography is ideal for women and men, those who have small breasts or implants, have dense breast tissue, women who are pregnant or nursing, those who have fibrocystic breasts and individuals who have undergone lumpectomies or mastectomies.
