Why You Should Choose Thermography over Mammography
By Dr. Veronique Desaulniers
Thermography now offers Very Early Detection
Mammograms? The compression and radiation (Xray x 1000) to the breast can harm your body.
We need to note that in spite of supposed advancements, mortality rates from breast cancer are unchanged over the last fifty years.
A few facts about mammography:
1.) Mammograms may increase the spread of cancer cells as a result of the compression of small tumors not yet visible on an x-ray.
2.) Since when is radiation safe? A mammogram delivers more than 1000 times the radiation of a chest X-ray.
3.) Studies have shown that if you have a family history of cancer, repeated mammograms may very well increase the possibility of cancer.
4.) A 25 year study concluded that routine mammography is only as effective in detecting breast cancer as a self breast exam.
5.) After all is said and done, mammograms have NOT reduced Breast Cancer mortality.
Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging
also known as Thermography, can detect abnormal breast patterns 5-8 years before it is visible on a mammogram. Thermography is a painless, non invasive, state of the art clinical test of physiology that is used as part of an early detection program. Infra red heat is measured with a special camera and the images are captured electronically.These are then analyzed by a Medical Doctor who specializes in analyzing and reading Thermographic images.
