No, thermography, like mammography is an investigative tool. Thermography identifies abnormal physiological changes in your breasts that may be indicative of breast disease. Mammography, a type of x-ray identifies certain structures n the breast that are abnormal and could be cancerous. With both mammography and thermography, a diagnosis is done by a tissue biopsy. Many of our patients come in after an abnormal “let’s watch this area” mammogram results, and correlate the area to be watched with a thermograpic image of the same region. If the thermogram indicates a physiological change in the same area, the patient will have more information with which to make an informed decision.
