Breast and Body Medical Thermal Imaging

Early detection saves lives!

NON INVASIVE

ThermaVUE offers safe, non-invasive, pain-free breast and body medical thermal imaging for the adjunctive diagnostic
screening for the early detection of breast cancer, circulatory diseases, inflammatory conditions and
neuromusculoskeletal injuries.

Medical thermal imaging can detect the earliest markers for cancer several years before mammograms. No radiation and no compressions allows for more frequent screening to monitor changes and healing as a result of treatment, natural therapies and / or lifestyle choices.

Medical Thermography or Medical Thermal Imaging 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.

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 Digital Infrared Imaging (DII) So Unique?
What Makes Digital Infrared Imaging (DII) So Unique?
While mammography, ultrasound, MRI and other anatomical structural imaging tools rely primarily on finding the physical tumour, DII 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 DII. This is why DII 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 Thermography Work?
How Does Thermography Work?
Thermography locates physiologically active tissue that may be hot due to angioneogenesis, 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 thermography) 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 BreastCancerNow.org, research indicates that 1 in every 7 women will get breast cancer in their lifetime.
