Take immediate appropriate action and be sure to consult with your physician and to follow up with secondary thermograms as recommended by the thermologist in your report. As inflammation is detected through the raised heat on the epidermis, thermology is able to help detect cancerous changes up to 10 years ahead of the standard mammogram. When screened early and at regular intervals, it potentially affords the patient time to make lifestyle changes to bring the body and the breasts back to a state of equilibrium.
Thermograms are infrared images that show the temperature of the skin irradiated by the underlying tissues. Inflammation has a heat signature which will be detected by the highly sensitive infrared camera.
