What Doctors Are Saying About Clinical Thermography

Women need to know that breast thermography is a promising and safe technology that is a welcome addition to helping women create breast health.

Every woman should include breast thermography as part of their regular breast health care. I have recommended the use of this technology extensively over the years in my newsletter. Thermography has the unique ability to “map” the individual thermal fingerprint of a woman’s breasts. Any change in this map over the course of months and years can signal an early indication of possible tumors or other abnormalities. In fact, studies have shown that an abnormal infrared image is the single most important indicator of high risk for developing breast cancer.

For years, I’ve been looking for a test to offer my patients who refuse mammograms. Some are concerned about cumulative radiation and complications from compression, and others have personal reasons for refusing this test. Yet, to do nothing is to put their heads in the sand, and this doesn’t save lives… I found in my research, and personally, that thermography can help a woman take a possible pre-cancerous condition and turn it around. It supports mammography and provides additional information. Prevention is the gold standard of health care. In my opinion, breast thermography should be part of every woman’s yearly exam to help prevent breast cancer, and for early detection.

The use of computerized medical infrared imaging for breast cancer detection, diagnosis, and as a high risk and prognostic indicator leads to both earlier detection of breast cancer and increases the overall survival of breast cancer patients.

Infrared imaging of the breast should be an integral part of any breast cancer screening program due to its value as an independent risk factor for breast cancer and its value as a prognostic indicator.

Infrared imaging, based more on process than structural changes, and requiring neither contact, compression, radiation nor venous access, provides pertinent and practical complimentary information to both clinical examination and mammography. Quality controlled abnormal infrared images heighten our index of suspicion in cases where clinical or mammographic findings are equivocal or nonspecific and signal the need for further investigation rather than observation. With the addition of infrared imaging, our sensitivity of image detection has increased from 83% to 93%.

...Dr. Desauliers:  Thermography is also a great tool to be able to access the physiological changes that are going on in the body. So, yes, there is a cure [breast cancer], and, yes, you can prevent it.

(Interviewer) And if you want to detect it, what you are saying is that there are better detection methods than getting your mammogram. You’re saying thermography is better?

Dr. Desaulniers: Absolutely. Thermography cannot diagnose cancer, but it can detect physiological changes going on in the body. And we know that mammograms, according to a 25-year Canadian study that was just published last year, mammograms are just as effective as a self-breast exam. And mammograms have not decreased breast cancer mortality rate, not even by one percent.
