Infrared Breast Thermography

Infrared Breast Thermography is a great way to raise breast awareness in the Greenville, Spartanburg and Anderson areas. This harmless, non-ionizing breast risk assessment test can complement other studies such as breast mammography for those looking to be as proactive as possible in the early detection of breast disease.  Breast thermography looks at physiology instead of structure and as a result it can provide different information regarding breast health as compared to traditional imaging studies.  Women also like that it is still effective in those with small, large, dense, fibrocystic, post surgical, and post implant breasts.   Tests of physiology may show abnormalities before structural tests too.  While there does not have to be a direct relationship this feature can allow breast thermography to detect disease before structural studies.  It also can monitor the effects of treatment or give insight into the progression of disease in the absence of treatment.   Learn more about the benefits of Breast Thermography at Piedmontpmr.com.

Breast Thermography and Mammography

Quite often when reading about Breast Thermography there is discussion about women who do not want to get a mammogram so they are looking for an alternative.   A conflict arises centered around Breast Thermography versus Mammography when the real discussion should be about the value of having both Breast Thermography and Mammography.   Breast Thermography is a breast risk health assessment, not unlike an elevated blood pressure reading that may indicate risk for stroke or heart attack.  Breast Mammography is an imaging test that looks for signs of abnormal structure associated with things like cancer.   They are simply not the same thing.  In some cases Mammography has a harder time seeing breast tissue changes.  Examples include women with small, dense, fibrocystic breasts or those who have had a mastectomy or implants.   In these cases Thermography is an especially valuable adjunct.   Since it is a test of skin temperature and physiology Breast Thermography also has the advantage of being able to look at estrogen imbalance, lymphatic congestion, and surface vascularity.    In yet other cases women simply want to be as proactive as possible and prefer to get both Breast Thermography and Mammography done in order to have an even more thorough examination done versus what Mammography alone might offer.   It makes sense when considering the merits of any structural or functionally oriented test to make use of both wisely.    For those who are looking for something beyond Mammography choosing both Breast Thermography and Mammography can make sense too.  Learn more about Breast Thermography and women’s health issues at piedmontpmr.com.
