Review: Breast ThermographyBreast Cancer, Cancer Websites — By nygal on July 18, 2008 at 12:02 pm
Information on the role of thermagrams in detecting breast cancer can be found on Breastthermography.com. This site is dedicated to providing information on breast thermography, risk assessment, breast cancer, early detection, prevention and ultimately the preservation of the breast and the survival of women.
The addition of Digital Infrared Imaging (Breast Thermography) to the frontline of early breast cancer detection brings a great deal of good news for women.
Unlike mammography and some other imaging modalities, DII does not require radiation, compression, contact, or intravenous injection. As such, DII is a very comfortable procedure which poses absolutely NO health risks to the patient. However, according to The American Cancer Society, it should not be used as a replacement for mammograms. Visit: the Breast Thermography website for more information.
