Breast Disease Detection Now Painless & Radiation-free

Breast screening. The thought of it makes women shudder. And you can't blame them; it is at times extremely excruciating and largely invasive. However, one can't argue on the efficacy and reliability that procedures like Ultrasonography, MRI, BRCA Testing, and Mammogram offer. But what if there's a proven procedure that's painless, non-invasive, and radiation-free, and able to detect risk of breast disease at its earliest stage?

Such a procedure exists.

Breast Thermography is a 15-minute, non-invasive breast physiological test. A medical practice that has been used since the early 70s, it detects the subtle physiological changes that accompany breast pathology (whether they be cancer, fibrocystic disease, an infection, or a vascular disease).

The method offers you and your doctor the valuable opportunity for earlier detection of breast diseases, as compared with self or doctor examination or mammography alone. Your doctor can then plan accordingly and construct a careful program for you in diagnosing and monitoring your treatment.

The procedure uses Digital Infrared Imaging or more commonly known as DII. The reasoning behind this is that metabolic activity and vascular circulation in both the area around a developing breast disease and pre-cancerous tissue are most likely higher than in average breast tissue.

Cancerous tumors, with its incessant need for nutrients, increase circulation by opening dormant vessels, holding existing open blood vessels, as well as creating new ones.

This results in a surge in regional surface temperatures of the breast, and that’s where DII comes in using ultra-sensitive medical infrared cameras to identify, assess, and produce high-resolution images of these temperature variations. And because of the high sensitivity of DII, the temperature variations help identify the earliest signs of breast disease.

Breast disease and its numerous iterations can be prevented. And it’s a fact that early detection, especially in the earliest stages, gives the patient the highest probability of fully recovering from the disease.

Mammogram and the forms of screening coupled with a painless and radiation-free procedure like Breast Thermography, arm women with the necessary tools to fight such diseases that have threatened the lives of millions in the Philippines and around the world.
