Breast thermography is a safe, painless, noninvasive test that takes only 20 minutes. It will alert you to subtle physiological changes that often accompany breast disease such as cancer, fibrocystic disease, infection, or vascular disease. The procedure may detect breast changes earlier than self examination, clinical examination or other breast testing. In fact, with Breast Thermography you may be able to detect breast disease up to 10 years earlier than other testing methods! Breast thermography can also help detect breast implant ruptures and leaks.

Thermography is especially appropriate for younger women between the ages of 30 and 50 whose denser breast tissue makes it more difficult for mammography to pick up suspicious activity. This test can provide a “clinical marker” to the mammographer that a specific area of the breast needs particularly close examination.
Thermography allows the technician to see changes in skin surface temperature. A scanning device converts infrared radiation into electrical impulses that are visualized in color on a monitor. Additionally, it graphically maps body temperature, and shows infrared radiation being emitted from the body surface. Since there is a high degree of thermal symmetry in healthy bodies, abnormal temperature differences are easily identified. Once the thermographic pictures are taken here at the center, our technicians send the images to Meditherm’s team of Physicians for interpretation. The Physicians at Meditherm then send the interpretation report back to our office within a few business days. This process is accurate, quick, and painless.
Thermography is a very sensitive and reliable way to graphically map and display temperature variations. In addition, Thermography allows us to evaluate, monitor, and document many injuries and conditions. These conditions include soft tissue injuries and sensory/autonomic nerve fiber dysfunction.
Also known as Medical Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI), Thermography’s value is in its sensitivity to detect pathology in the vascular, muscular, neural and skeletal systems. Therefore, this amazing technology gives the clinician a very clear picture of health or abnormality.
Thermography is very useful as a complementary procedure to other diagnostic modalities.
