Thermography Centers for Breast Cancer screening

Check below to find a center in your state that does thermography breast screening.

Thermographic breast screening is brilliantly simple. It measures the radiation of infrared heat from your body and translates this information into anatomical images. Your normal blood circulation is under the control of your autonomic nervous system, which governs your body functions.

Thermography uses no mechanical pressure or ionizing radiation, and can detect signs of breast cancer years earlier than either mammography or a physical exam.

Mammography cannot detect a tumor until after it has been growing for years and reaches a certain size. Thermography is able to detect the possibility of breast cancer much earlier, because it can image the early stages of angiogenesis (the formation of a direct supply of blood to cancer cells, which is a necessary step before they can grow into tumors of size).

CTT - Certification as a clinical thermographic technician
Provisional Certification as a Clinical Thermographic Technician (Provisional CTT) denotes an individual who is currently involved in his or her thermographic residency program and has demonstrated competency in capturing thermographic images under the supervision of an IACT instructor. IACT provides offsite supervision for such centers and the public should feel quite confident in their quality of service. Images taken at a center which does not have a qualified interpreter (Thermologist) on staff will be read by an outside specialist who has met IACT standards and guidelines for interpretation of infrared images.

Not that you'll post this, but Thermography has been around for many years and is NOT recognized as a diagnostic tool. It is too sensitive and not specific enough to be of any value clinically. Mammography is the GOLD standard in detecting breast cancer. The patients we see (I work in an imaging center) who have had a thermogrophic scan usually have the largest and most invasive cancers. Why? Because they go untreated and unrecognized. Who reads thermograms? Ask your provider. It's not an MD or even a DO - they won't touch this technology.

Good luck!

Thank you so much for this wealth of information! I have never had a mammogram due to not wanting to be exposed to the radiation and had never heard of Thermography until a few months ago! Once I read and researched about it, I was elated.

I have made an appointment with Dr. William Cockburn in Southern California and am very excited about not ever having to worry about harmful radiation!

Thanks for the time you put in compiling this valuable information!

AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN BREAST CANCER PREVENTION
Is there a hormone imbalance in your breasts?
Since the single greatest risk factor for the development of breast cancer is lifetime exposure to estrogen,normalizing the balance of the hormones in the breast may be the first and most significant step in prevention.Breast thermography is the only known non-invasive procedure that can detect estrogen dominance in the breasts. If a woman's thermographic images suggest a relative progesterone deficiency (estrogen dominance),treatment of this condition may play an important role in prevention.With treatment from her doctor,a woman can use this information to balance the hormones in her breasts. Follow-up thermograms are compared to the baseline estrogen dominant images as part of the treatment monitoring process.

According to me i think that mammography will be better than thermography because thermography has more side effects which is really harmful to health.

Thermography can detect irregular patterns in the breast, conditions that occur before a noticeable lump is formed. In some cases, such as inflammatory cancer, there are no lumps to be detected by self-exam or mammogram. That's why adding thermography to your annual health routine can help with early detection. You Will increase your chances of detecting breast cancer in its earliest stages.

Although breast cancer is extremely uncommon during childhood and adolescence, breast concerns and problems among females of this age group are a relatively common occurrence. These concerns may be further exaggerated by the significance placed on breasts in American culture and the fear of breast cancer.

Yes, thermal imaging is great!

And another interesting detection technique is trained dogs:

"dogs can detect breast and lung cancer with sensitivity and specificity between 88 percent and 97 percent. Moreover, the study also confirmed that the trained dogs could even detect the early stages of lung cancer, as well as early breast cancer. The researchers concluded that breath analysis has the potential to provide a substantial reduction in the uncertainty currently seen in cancer diagnosis."

Thank you for posting this list. Someone close to me may have breast cancer, and I'm doing some research to help her out. Mammograms have a HUGE # of false positives, and they subject women to a very painful procedure which can actually CAUSE (because of the radiation) breast cancer.
