Comprehensive Services in Breast Thermography from Our Chiropractor in Redondo Beach
Breast Thermography is a safe, effective screening tool used to detect abnormalities and pathologies of the breast. Using infrared technology, this non-radiation, non-invasive process highlights and the physiological changes that occur in different breast anomalies. This thermal imaging process also helps monitor the effects of varied lifestyle changes that could impact negatively the breasts. Having knowledge of what impacts breast health allows women to become informed and help therefore in the early detection of breast cancer.
What occurs during the Breast Thermography process?
The clinician performs an initial consultation where you will provide information on your prior health history. It is a good idea to be prepared to answer detailed questions, such as lifestyle regiments, any medications, surgeries, or complications that have occurred. The clinician also needs to know whether or not you currently take hormones or have in the past.
Once this initial session is complete and the body is cooled to the appropriate temperature, a minimum of six images will be taken of the breast area to provide some insight on possible areas of concern. After this process, the thermogram will be assessed, and a follow-up appointment will be scheduled within seven business days.
Why would Someone Need A Breast Thermogram?
A breast thermogram identifies issues in the breast long before recommended exams are done. It identifies physiological changes in the breast at the cellular level to detect any areas that require further evaluation. Breast Thermography is a safe and non-invasive way to monitor the progress of someone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer, or is a breast cancer survivor or is concerned with their breast health.
Below is an example of a Breast Cancer patient imaged in Nov 2014 and again June 2015 (7 months apart). Her breasts have made tremendous positive progress! Not only are they becoming less vascular but the isolated areas of concern have better temperatures that show positive progress.
