Medical Thermal Imaging

Redefining ‘EARLY’ in ‘EARLY detection saves lives’!


Imagine if there was a better breast screening approach using modern technology:

  • suitable for all ages even the young with dense breast tissue (so screening can start from age of 21)

  • suitable after surgery or with implants or even if you have a pacemaker

  • combined multiple tests for true accuracy

  • is gentle, 100% safe and accurate 

  • with NO radiation and NO compression

  • detects the very earliest markers for cancer 

  • plays an important role in breast cancer prevention 

  • provides an early risk assessment for breast cancer 

  • is so safe you can use it as often as you need to monitor changes in the breasts

  • can find the true cause of pain so you can get the treatment you need

And as an athlete . . . imagine there was a test that could give you the edge in sports injury management

Well  imagine no longer, it’s here! 



the life-saving technology of the 3rd millennium!!   

ThermaVUE® Medical Thermal Imaging:

  • Provides you with safe, non-invasive and pain-free breast and body imaging for the adjunctive diagnostic screening for the earliest detection of breast cancer, circulatory diseases, inflammatory conditions and neuro-musculoskeletal injuries.
  • Can detect the earliest markers for breast cancer several years before tumours are big enough to be detected by structural imaging.
  • NO radiation and NO compression allows for more frequent screening to monitor changes and healing as a result of treatment, natural therapies and / or lifestyle choices.
  • An essential life saving tool for women particularly those under 50 with no screening protocol where mammograms are not suitable due to breast tissue density in younger women.

ThermaVUE® Medical Thermal Imaging MammoTHERMOgram is a system using a highly technical and non-contact infrared camera to capture and record temperature variations on the skin, the largest organ of the body.

Thermal Imaging is also known as Thermography or Thermology

The surface of the skin provides vital information that is directly influenced by complex metabolic and vascular activity, including micro-circulation, below the surface via the sympathetic nervous system. Thermography does not see or diagnose cancer or other diseases. These patterns of activity vary in intensity and distribution over each body region, represented by images with variation in colours. Detection of variations in skin temperature allows for recognition of asymmetric, abnormal or suspicious thermal patterns over a specific area or region of interest. Changes of these patterns may be recognised by the interpreter as abnormal physiology or function.

What Makes ThermaVUE® Medical Thermal Imaging So Unique?
What Makes ThermaVUE® Medical Thermal Imaging So Unique?
While mammography, ultrasound, MRI and other anatomical structural imaging tools rely primarily on finding the physical tumour, ThermaVUE® Medical Thermal Imaging is based on detecting the physiological heat produced by increased blood vessel circulation and metabolic changes associated with inflammation and a tumours’ genesis and growth. By detecting minute variations in the normal blood vessel activity, infrared imaging may find thermal signs suggesting a pre-cancerous state of the breast or the presence of an early tumour that is not yet large enough to be detected by physical examination, mammography or other types of structural imaging. Certain types of cancers will not be detected (approximately 20%) by mammography for various reasons, but most of these cancers will be discovered by thermal imaging. This is why ThermaVUE® Medical Thermal Imaging is an important adjunctive screening to be used in conjunction with the structural imaging tools of mammography, ultrasound and MRI and not to replace them. If necessary, your doctor will work with you to find the most appropriate structural screening tool.

How Does ThermaVUE®Medical Thermal Imaging Work?
ThermaVUE® Medical Thermal Imaging locates physiologically active tissue that may be hot due to neoangiogenesis, the development of new blood vessels that feed tumours; or inflammation associated with the tumour process, circulatory conditions, injury or disease. Cancer metabolism usually produces more heat compared to normal adjacent tissue and can be monitored for baseline comparison.
Mammothermograms® (Breast Thermal Imaging) proportionally detects the rise in skin temperature and the possible growth of cancer cells.
Early Detection Means Life
Early Detection Means Life
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, and the risk increases with age. Risk is also higher in women whose close relatives have had the disease. However, every woman is at risk of developing breast cancer. According to, research indicates that 1 in every 7 women will get breast cancer in their lifetime.

Quick and Simple


All thermogram reports are meant to identify thermal emissions that suggest potential risk markers only and do not in any way suggest a diagnosis or treatment. As with other medical imaging systems, a diagnosis cannot be made from an infrared image. The thermal markers must be correlated by the patient’s treating physician with additional testing and procedures before a final diagnosis can be made. Medical Thermal Imaging  (also known as Thermography) offers information that no other procedure can provide. However, thermography is utilized as an adjunctive imaging procedure and, as such, is not a replacement for or alternative to any other form of imaging. Since thermal imaging only detects heat at the surface of the body, the technology cannot see into the cranial vault, thoracic cavity, abdomen, pelvic basin, or deep into the body to visualize organs or bones. As such, thermography cannot be used to screen for skin cancer, internal disorders, or the spread of cancer (metastasis).
