Breast Thermography

Breast health is one of the biggest health challenges for women in the UK. Women in the UK who were born after 1960 have an estimated 1 in 7 risk of developing breast cancer in their lifetime. Consequently, we recommend checking your breast health regularly using Thermography which does not use radiation or compression.

What is Breast Thermography?

Breast Thermography uses infrared photography to create a thermogram, or an image of the breast area, revealing heat patterns that can indicate abnormalities like infection, inflammation or other pathology. Breast abnormalities can have abnormal blood vessel patterns and increased metabolic activity that give off more heat than the surrounding tissue. Analysis of these heat patterns can enable early intervention and reduction of risk.

What are the benefits?

  1. The Thermography procedure can be repeated as often as required as there is no compression and no radiation. This allows regular breast health checks with low risk.
  2. Thermography does not replace Mammography as a cancer diagnostic tool, but it can be a useful adjunct to mammography for women with dense breasts (especially younger women) or where other tests present difficulties.
  3. It is 100% Safe.
    • Nothing is emitted from the camera.
    • Nothing is injected into your body.
    • There is no risk of damage to the fragile cellular DNA
  4. No Radiation!
  5. It is painless.  There is no contact or compression.
  6. It is inexpensive (compared to other diagnostic imaging procedures).
  7. It is effective for men, women and children.
  8. Thermography is ideal for PREVENTIVE medicine.
    • Thermography allows for early detection and thereby timely investigation and intervention BEFORE symptoms manifest.
  9. It is the ideal tool for Early Health Screening
    • Thermography offers the unique insight of your body’s current physiology and a first glance at developing conditions, long before the much later stage detection of conventional imaging.
  10. For Womens’ Health Screening
    • Thermography can be used by women of all ages, from pre-adolescence  to post-menopausal women.
      There is no age limit
    • Thermography can be used by women of all shapes and sizes
      • Small breasted women
      • Large breasted women
      • Women with breast implants – thermography won’t harm delicate breast implants
      • Women with dense breast tissue (typically women in their 20’s and 30’s)
      • Women with fibrocystic breast tissue
      • Women who are pregnant and/or breast feeding
      • Women in who are in menopause
      • Women who are in their post-menopausal years
      • Women who are on hormone replacement therapy.
    • Thermography can help monitor hormonal balance
