  • 1. Breast Thermography
    Dr. Monica Gavin

  • 2. Breast Cancer
    Breast cancer is the leading cause of death among American women between the ages of 44 and 55
    Mammography is not as effective and safe as widely thought
  • 3. Mammography
    About 70 percent of all positive mammograms do not, upon biopsy, show any presence of cancer. At the same time, mammograms also have a high rate of missed tumors, or "false negatives." Dr. Samuel S. Epstein, in his book, The Politics of Cancer, claims that in women ages 40 to 49, one in four instances of cancer is missed at each mammography.
  • 4. Mammography
    Mammography also carries radiation risks. According to Russell L. Blaylock, MD, one estimate is that annual radiological breast exams increase the risk of breast cancer by two percent a year. So over 10 years the risk will have increased 20 percent.
  • 5. Mammography
    Since mammographic screening was introduced, the incidence of breast cancer has increased by 328 percent
    In addition to harmful radiation, mammography may also help spread existing cancer cells due to the considerable pressure placed on the woman's breast during the procedure.
  • 6. Breast Thermography
    It is radiation free, non-invasive, FDA approved, relatively inexpensive, and detects early, potentially reversible physiologic changes associated with later development of breast cancer.
  • 7. What thermography offers and its strong points
    No radiation, non-invasive, harmless.
    Can be used as often as indicated to trace a problem, observe the effectiveness of treatment, or monitor the health of the breast over time.
    Functional imaging. Detects physiologic changes. Cannot pinpoint the exact area of suspicion inside the breast.
  • 8. What thermography offers and its strong points
    Non-contact. Nothing touches the breasts.
    Earliest method of breast cancer detection known.
    Can detect a pathologic state of the breast up to 10 years before a cancerous tumor is found by any other method.
    Has the ability to detect fast growing aggressive tumors.
  • 9. What thermography offers and its strong points
    In 7 out of 10 women, thermography will be the first alarm that something is happening.
    A positive infrared image represents the highest known risk factor for the existence of or future development of breast cancer – 10 times more significant than any family history of the disease.
    Due to the nature of infrared imaging, pre-cancerous and cancerous tumors as deep as the chest wall can be detected
