Infrared Breast Thermography is another assessment tool we offer for our Greenville, Spartanburg, and Anderson area patients. It is a safe, non-ionizing, non-contact study of breast skin temperature that is useful as a breast thermal findings assessment. It is useful as in the detection of physiologic changes such as hypervascularity, hyperthermia, hormonal imbalance, lymphatic edema, ductal congestion, chest wall and other thoracic pain syndromes. Internationally peer reviewed Guidelines for Breast Thermography have been developed by the American Academy of Thermology in 2012 and are restated every three years. These guidelines support breast thermal imaging as a breast thermal findings assessment, the results of which can be used to assist in clinical decision making regarding breast health, not unlike high blood pressure screening for vascular disease.
