Thermography is ...
Thermography is a non-invasive, non-contact, radiation-free, painless imaging that can assess abnormal inflammation and risk for breast cancer.
Thermography (also called Medical Infrared Imaging - MIT) creates a map of the skin surface temperature which can indicate an abnormal heat pattern which may be an indicator that something is happening in the body that could require more investigation.
Thermography can be used at any time to detect and track areas of concerns and its as easy as getting your picture taken.
Thermography can provide information on:
Breast cancer risk assessment
Cause of pain in the body
Spine pain and back injury
Arthritis, sprains and strains
Risk for sports injury
Sub-clinical thyroid conditions
Skin cancer risk

Every month should be breast cancer PREVENTION month!!
Are you personally at a greater risk for breast cancer?
A woman living in the United States has a 1-in-8 lifetime risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer.
In the 1970s this risk was 1-in-11. Increased risk is not because women are being made differently, it's because today we are exposed to more and more causes of inflammation.
Thermography provides an individualized breast cancer risk assessment.
Women with a family history are definitely at greater risk, but 85% of women who get breast cancer have no family history of the disease.
Thermography plays an important role in breast cancer prevention. Breast Thermography can warn women if they have estrogen activation in the breasts or inflammation (heat) present that may indicate risk.
The most significant risk factors for breast cancer are age (getting older) and gender (being a woman). 80% of all breast cancers are estrogen driven. To be clear, estrogen doesn't cause breast cancer, it feeds it.
Thermography offers accurate scanning for women under 40.
Approximately 1/3 of all breast cancers occur in women under 45.
No one test is perfect.
Studies show up to a 61% increase in survival rate when thermography and mammography are used together. Mammography can confirm or deny if you have a tumor. Thermography can provide information to assess your risk for developing a tumor.

Thermography Visualizes Inflammation
Inflammation is believed to be the root cause of disease, illness and ailments that plague people from all walks of life.
Inflammation is our bodyʼs way of telling us that something is wrong, or trying to fight back against what is harming it.
This means that when our bodies are struggling with inflammation, itʼs a warning sign of something else occurring within the body. It is the result of any injury to tissue, including trauma, toxins, surgery, burns, bacteria, etc.
Although inflammation has been studied for decades, thereʼs still a lot to learn about this complex physiological condition.
Inflammation is basically state of hyperactivity in the body, in which the immune systemʼs reserve capacity is thrown into overdrive.
This excess immune activation sends the wrong cellular signals to various parts of the body — and can wind up worsening conditions like diabetes, Alzheimerʼs, and potentially even cancer.
“The connection between inflammation and cancer has moved to center stage in the research arena,” notes Robert A. Weinberg ofthe Massachusetts Institute of Technologyʼs Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research.
Understanding Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
Pain associated with CRPS is characterized as constant, extremely intense, and out of proportion to the original injury. The pain is typically accompanied by swelling, skin changes, extreme sensitivity, and can often be debilitating. It usually affects one or more of the four limbs but can occur in any part of the body and in over 70% of the victims it spreads to additional areas.
CRPS is ranked as the most painful form of chronic pain that exists today by the McGill Pain Index.
“The diagnosis and management of neuropathic pain requires neurovascular autonomic tests such as infrared thermal imaging.” - Dr. Hooshang Hooshmand, M.D.
