Dr. Mercola & Gena Powell discuss the benefits of breast thermography and the need for annual assessment. Click to read the complete story.
• The article discusses the benefits of annual Breast Thermography Health Assessment Imaging as a physiological test to monitor your breast health, allowing you the opportunity to address chronic inflammation in your body BEFORE cancer has had the time to develop.
• Infrared cameras measure the heat coming from the surface of your body. Specialized software translates temperature data into thermal images for medical evaluation. It is non-invasive and does not utilize mechanical compression or ionizing radiation, and can alert us to physiological abnormalities due to inflammation or increased tumor related blood flow, 8-10 years before mammography or a physical exam can detect a cancerous mass.
• Breast Thermography Health Assessment Imaging benefits are proven effective for women of all ages and for all breast densities. It is particularly helpful for women with dense breasts, as they are at a higher risk of developing cancer, and have an increased risk of both false positives and false negatives due to the limitations mammograms have in imaging dense breast tissue.
