WHAT IS THERMOGRAPHY?
A Risk Assessment Procedure
Thermography is a medical screening device for breast cancer and other breast disease using infrared detectors, commonly called infrared cameras. This procedure is non invasive and does not use radiation. It is complimentary to mammography and causes no harm to the patient.
Thermography has been approved by the United States FDA since 1982 for the adjunctive screening of breast cancer. Recent studies have shown thermography to be effective with 90% sensitivity and specificity. Currently no single imaging tool is 100% accurate in the detection of breast cancer including thermography or mammography, but when used together the detection rate greatly increases.
