Breast Imaging *

By the time mammography detects breast cancer, a women has had it for 8 to 10 years.  By carefully examining aspects of temperature and blood vessel activity of the breasts in thermal images, signs of possible cancer or pre-cancerous cell growth may be detected within the first year of development. This provides the earliest detection of breast cancer possible. Because of thermal imaging’s extreme sensitivity, these temperature variations and vascular changes are among the earliest signs of breast cancer or a pre-cancerous state of the breast.

This breast imaging procedure is based on the principle that chemical and blood vessel activity in both pre-cancerous tissue and the area surrounding a developing breast tumor is almost always higher than in the normal breast. Since pre-cancerous and cancerous masses are highly metabolic tissues, they need an abundant supply of nutrients to maintain their growth. To obtain these nutrients they increase circulation to their cells by secreting chemicals to keep existing blood vessels open, recruit dormant vessels, and create new ones (neoangiogenesis). This process results in an increase in regional surface temperatures of the breast.

State-of-the-art applications use ultra-sensitive thermal imaging cameras and sophisticated computer software to detect, analyze, and produce high-resolution diagnostic thermal images of these temperature and vascular changes.

Upper ** and Full Body Imaging †

Thermography allows multiple views of the body from a physiological and functional point of view.  This provides views of your body as a whole for diagnostic insight and a perspective of individual wellness without compromising any systems (100% safe). Your body is considered a thermodynamic living organism that forwards and receives information by way of the nervous system which is medically divided into three (3) primary systems: Motor = muscle control, Sensory = touch and vision, and Autonomic = control of blood flow to all organs. Skin is your largest organ and has unique and distinctive thermal patterns that are specific to you. Skin thermal patterns demonstrate hot and cold areas that are consistent with the body part involved in that region and are imaged with highly sensitive medical infrared cameras.

The digitized data from the camera is saved by the imaging system computer for evaluation by a licensed physician who is trained and certified as a Clinical Thermologist which allows for the specific interpretation of your thermal patterns. When conducting upper and full body imaging, we assess patterns that can relate to the function of your heart, lungs, digestive system, colon, stomach, liver, gallbladder, thyroid, vascular system, muscles, joints, and breast health. Thermal imaging has the ability to “see” inflammation, nerve and vascular changes that are invisible to X-ray and MRI.
