Routine Breast Screening
The standard recommendation is that all women should begin annual breast screening at age 40. With recent statistics indicating that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime, early detection is critical.
Thermal imaging is a “do no harm” method of breast screening and is safe for all women. It is recommended for women to begin annual thermal imaging as early as age 25, especially if there is a family history of breast cancer.
Baseline Breast Screening
Every woman has a unique thermal heat pattern. It is as unique as her fingerprint. Because thermal imaging looks for change over time, it is essential that a stable baseline be established. This requires two sets of image be taken within a 3-4 month period. This helps to assure that the breast tissue is unchanged and remains stable. Once a baseline is established, it will then be used for comparison to all future scans so that the most subtle of tissue changes can be identified.
