I don’t know a single woman who looks forward to a mammogram, and most women don’t even know there are alternatives to monitoring breast health apart from that highly-invasive & uncomfortable procedure! I personally have begun this as my choice of breast health monitoring and I wanted to share a little more with you. I used to refer my patients to either Austin or Dallas to get thermography imaging, but now we have it available in GRANBURY!! I highly recommend Melissa Cash, N.D.’s “In His Image Thermography” at Head2Toe Salon in Granbury…and here’s why…
Breast Thermography measures the infrared radiation (heat) which is constantly radiating (emitting) away from the surface of the human skin. Skin as an organ breathes, exchanges gases with the environment, cools us as well as keeps us warm by letting heat out or keeping it in by controlling the amount of circulation, or blood flow, in the skin. This automatic regulation is done without conscious thought and is controlled by the autonomic nervous system via the sympathetics. The whole process is called thermoregulation.
The procedure of Breast Thermography is both comfortable and safe using no radiation nor any compression. By carefully examining changes in the temperature and blood vessels of the breasts, signs of breast abnormalities may be detected years before a more serious problem develops. This provides for the earliest possible warning signal. Because of breast thermography’s extreme sensitivity, these temperature variations and vascular changes may be among the earliest signs of breast disease and/or a pre-cancerous state of the breast.
Breast Thermography has been researched for over 30 years, and over 800 peer-reviewed breast thermography studies exist in the index-medicus. In this data base well over 250,000 women have been included as study participants. Some of these studies have followed patients up to 12 years. Breast thermography has an average sensitivity and specificity of 90%.
