What is a Thermogram? -- No Pain Breast Screening

 

A thermogram is a 15 - minute, non invasive test used to detect breast disease. There is no contact with the body of any kind, no radiation, and the procedure is painless. It uses Thermography, a process of infrared technology to spot abnormalities in your breasts by measuring temperature variations.

This state-of-the-art system, called DITI (Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging), is able to read functional changes in the breast at the critical point when a tumor begins to receive its own blood supply – before malignant cells have a chance to spread. Early detection is key.
