Over 30 years of research comprising of 300,000 women over 800 peer-reviewed studies on breast thermography exist in the index-medicus literature. Breast thermography has the ability to detect the first signs that a cancer may be forming up to 10 years before any other procedure can detect it.
An abnormal thermogram is 10 times more significant as a future risk indicator for breast cancer than a first order family history of the disease. A persistent abnormal thermogram caries with it a 22x higher risk of future breast cancer.
An abnormal infrared image is the single most important marker of high risk for developing breast cancer.
Thermography can see the disease process before that mass has ever been formed when it is so small (can be detected as small as the size of a ball point pen), it is only a "fever" and too difficult to perform a biopsy on because the exact location is difficult to locate.
Thermography was FDA approved tool to mammography in 1982; however, it is not yet government regulated. Because of this, it is very important to find a facility with the highest standards, quality control, images that are reproducible, and a multitude of other factors. The International Academy of Clinical Thermology is the oldest, most trusted thermal imaging source.
