Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging
Thermography has been comprehensively researched for more than 30 years, and while it should not replace technologies such as Mammography, it has many valuable functions, namely: early detection of neovascular patterns (blood supply) – giving a physiological picture of the body.
It provides improved detection for women with dense breasts. It can also serve as an adjunct to inconclusive mammograms. Thermography involves a procedure of taking a photographic image of a patient, producing a ‘map’ of the infrared patterns of the body. Any modification of this infrared map on images taken over months to years can indicate early signs of an abnormality. After taking a base thermogram and then regular series of thermograms, the patient’s physiological ‘map’ can be monitored and early signs of abnormality.
However, thermography does not have the ability to locate a tumour. Consequently, breast Thermography’s role is an adjunct to mammography and physical examination, not a replacement.
