Don’t Wait to Feel a Lump…Heal Before You Can Feel!!
At Go Pink! we are spreading the word about early detection of breast cancer. Don’t wait until cancer cells have grown to the size that you can feel. Where mammography looks for structure such as a lump, thermography looks for the body’s physiological response to cancer cells. These changes can often occur 8-10 years before the cells are large enough to be seen by a mammogram. Be proactive with your health and have your radiation free breast screening today!
What Is Thermography? Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI)
Breast Thermography can detect abnormalities in breast tissue 8-10 years earlier than a mammogram!
Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging uses changes in breast tissue temperatures to identify changes in breast tissue. When pre-cancerous cells or cancerous cells form in the breast tissue, changes in blood flow and tissue concentration occur, resulting in temperature changes. The thermographic images will show the change in blood flow, tissue density as it is related to temperature, and heat distribution. DITI’s role in breast cancer and other breast disorders is to help in early detection and monitoring of abnormal physiology and the establishment of risk factors from the development or existence of cancer. This will then alert doctors of concerning changes. When used with other procedures the best possible evaluation of breast health is made.
The initial exam is done to determine a baseline and then a follow-up is done 3 months later to see if any changes have occured.
