Research & Case Studies
Breast thermography has been researched for over 30 years and over 800 peer reviewed breast thermography studies exist in the index-medicus. Some studies have shown that when thermography is added to a woman's regular breast health checkup, a 61% increased survival rate has been realized. And when used as a part of a mulitmodal approach (clinical examination + mammography + thermography) 95% of early stage cancers will be detected. Thermography, with its non-radiation, non-contact and low-cost basis has been clearly demonstrated to be a valuable and safe early risk marker of breast pathology. It has proven to be an excellent case management tool for the ongoing monitoring and treatment of breast disease when used under carefully controlled clinical protocols.

Screening thermography has the opportunity to detect changes at any stage in the development from the first year through to when a tumor is dense enough to be seen with mammography. This early detection of
change can lead to earlier diagnosis and better treatment options as well as the opportunity for patients and their healthcare practitioners to intervene at an early stage with preventative treatment.
