While the official term is Digital Infrared Imaging, this procedure when applied to breast screening is also known as Thermal Mammography, Thermal Breast Imaging, thermographic breast screening etc.

Screening methods such as mammography (mammograms), CT, ultrasound, PET scans, MRI or breast examination detect a malignant tumor only once it has already formed and reached a certain size, i.e. years after its original inception.

In contrast, thermography (FDA-approved since 1982 as an adjunct screening tool in breast cancer diagnosis) detects cancerous or even merely "suspicious" spots or growths (malignant cell colonies) up to 10 years in advance of conventional methods which makes it the earliest detection method available.

Thermography works by detecting (imaging) the early stages of angiogenesis, i.e. the formation of capillaries due to the cancer cells secreting certain substances; these newly sprouted primitive blood vessels supply tumour cells with nutrients and enable them to possibly grow into sizeable tumors. In addition to this vastly superior diagnostic accuracy and earliest possible detection of abnormality allowing for the earliest possible intervention, thermograms are painless (no application of mechanical pressure), comfortable, non-invasive, non-contact and free of intravenous injections and ionizing radiation, an established well-known possible cause of cancer. Thermograms are considered totally safe, including for women with breast implants or sensitive breasts and during pregnancy.

Additional note on breast health screening via thermography

A recovered breast cancer patient who has decided to use thermography as a screening tool instead of mammograms recommends care in choosing a thermography practitioner. Apparently thermography has been used for over 50 years, with the lesser accuracy of the original equipment making conventional doctors disregard thermography as a valid test. She recommends The Thermogram Center, 315 S. Boulder Rd., Ste. 110, Louisville, CO 80027, (303) 664-1139, www.ThermogramCenter.com and a talk with its very knowledgeable and helpful technician, Tirza Derflinger, CTT. Apparently you can call them for a certified location in your area.
