Breast Thermography.org is the place to find information concerning breast thermal imaging. Thermography is a medical screening device for breast cancer and other breast disease using infrared detectors, commonly called infrared cameras. This procedure is non invasive and does not use radiation. It is complimentary to mammography and causes no harm to the patient.
Thermography has been approved by the United States FDA since 1983 for the adjunctive screening of breast cancer. Recent studies have shown thermography to be effective in women with health breasts at 97% sensitivity.
Breast Thermography.org has been on the internet for over 14 years.
