Thermography, a revolutionary and safe diagnostic tool, detects hidden inflammation, allowing one to detect breast cancer which is one of the leading causes of death among women.
Thermography is the measurement of temperature variations at the body surface. The scientific evidence suggests that thermography may only confirm the presence of a temperature difference, and that other procedures are needed to reach a specific diagnosis. Thermography may add little to what doctors already know based on history, physical examination, and other studies.
Thermography studies are non-invasive imaging techniques that are intended to measure the skin surface temperature distribution of various organs and tissues. The infrared radiation from the tissues reveals temperature variations by producing brightly colored patterns on a liquid crystal display. Interpretation of the color pattern is thought to contribute to the diagnosis of many disorders including breast cancer.
