Safe Breast Cancer Screening

Safe Breast Cancer Screening

As a current method of detection mammography has become a mainstay in traditional medicine.  Thermography (Digital Infrared Breast Imaging), however, is shown to be a safer and more effective tool in detecting physiological changes in breast tissue before a tumor can be detected with mammography.

I found this article on the blog of Dr. Sarah Cimperman, N.D.:

A Different Kind of Doctor: Mammograms Misunderstood

The article talks about misconceptions about mammograms and offers concrete information on accurate alternatives, including infrared imaging, otherwise know as breast thermography, which is painless, non-invasive, and free of radiation.

Breast thermography (digital infrared imaging) may be new information for you; therefore we have outlined the more frequently asked questions below. Should you have any questions that are not addressed here or simply need more information, please call us at (916) 784-9355.

Breast Thermography is a non-invasive screening procedure that detects and records infrared heat emissions from the breast, which can aid in the early detection of breast cancer.

The procedure is based on the principle that chemical and blood vessel activity in both pre-cancerous tissue and the area surrounding a developing breast cancer 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. The cells release substances that stimulate the formation of new blood vessels (neoangiogenesis). This process results in an increase in surface temperatures of the breast.

State-of-the-art breast thermography uses ultra-sensitive infrared cameras and sophisticated computers to detect, analyze, and produce high-resolution images of these temperature and vascular changes. The procedure is both comfortable and safe using no radiation or compression. By carefully examining changes in the temperature and blood vessels of the breasts, signs of possible cancer or pre-cancerous cell growth may be detected up to 10 years prior to being discovered using any other procedure. This provides for the earliest detection of cancer possible. Because of the extreme sensitivity of breast thermography, these temperature variations and vascular changes may be among the earliest signs of breast cancer and/or a pre-cancerous state of the breast.
