Thermography is a radiation-free, state of the art screening procedure that uses heat detection to locate areas of temperature differences in the body.
Thermography has been used for breast cancer detection since 1956. It was cleared by the FDA in 1982 as an adjunctive procedure for breast cancer screening. There are over 800 studies published in peer-reviewed journals about thermography of the breast alone. Most of these articles show the success rate of breast thermography greater than 90%. There are studies showing even a rate of 97%.
