The Truth About Breast Thermography Breast thermography is a clinical diagnostic procedure which uses highly specialized infra red cameras to measure the heat coming from the body, in this case, the breast. Thermography has been approved for this purpose for many years by the US FDA (United States Food and Drug Administration) and in the past two years (2001-2002) many new doctors and technicians have entered the field.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month!!!This year over 200,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and over 40,000 women will die. Medical Infrared Thermal Imaging can detect certain cancers 10 years before a mammogram with a 90% accuracy and without the discomfort, errors, and radiation associated with mammography. Help us promote Breast Cancer Awareness this year by getting the word out regarding Medical Infrared Imaging and early detection of breast cancer. The process is non-invasive and has clearance by the FDA. With your help we can educate the world on early detection and prevention of breast cancer.

Using thermal imaging cameras as a medical diagnostic tool began in the late 1960’s. Initially it did not find its beginnings in main stream medicine. In fact it is a technology that has evolved primarily from a defense industry's need and secondarily as an engineering tool. Mainstream infrared camera manufacturers do not have a medical equipment manufacturing background. The science of medical thermal imaging was not initially embraced by radiologists or most medical doctors after its introduction. Most of the thermal imaging systems sold medically over the last 30 years were to chiropractors. Although there has been a gradual change, medical doctors and chiropractors have not always agreed.
