Thermography is a safe alternative to mammograms that doesn’t involve radiation or harmful treatment of breast tissues by squeezing the breast between two plates. In fact, thermography requires no physical contact with the body at all to work. A camera takes a picture of the heat signature the body gives off to create a color map, or thermogram, of the body’s heat. Often, a concentration of heat in an area of the body where it would not normally be can be indications of problems such as cancer, inflammation, or stress, among other things. An interpreting doctor can read the results and determine the next course of action.
Because a thermogram reads heat, it can detect abnormal activity long before a traditional mammogram, self examination or even doctor examination can. Early detection is especially important for women under 50 who will often have denser breast tissue, making suspicious legions harder to find.
Thermography isn’t just for breast screenings, but can also be used as a diagnosis for abnormalities anywhere in the body. The thermogram machines at Thermography Limited, LLC., can detect very slight changes in temperature on the body which can indicate inflammation, soft tissue injuries, and sensory/autonomic nerve fiber dysfunction.
