Breast Thermography

Infrared Breast Thermography.
 Breast Thermography is a diagnostic procedure that images the breasts to aid in the early detection of breast cancer.

The procedure is based on the principle that the temperature in both precancerous tissue and the area surrounding a developing breast cancer is almost always higher than in the normal breast. Since precancerous and cancerous masses are highly metabolic tissues, they need an abundant supply of nutrients to maintain their growth. In order to do this they increase circulation to their cells by sending out chemicals to keep existing blood vessels open, recruit dormant vessels, and create new ones. This process results in an increase in regional surface temperatures of the breast.

State of the art Breast Thermography uses ultra-sensitive infrared cameras and sophisticated computers to detect, analyze, and produce high-resolution diagnostic images of these temperature and vascular changes.

If you live in Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Hollywood, or any surrounding South Florida location, give Dr. Slavin and the Institute of Advanced Medicine a call to schedule your procedure!

The procedure is both comfortable and safe, using no radiation or compression. By carefully examining changes in the temperature and blood vessels of the breasts, signs of possible cancer or precancerous cell growth may be detected up to 10 years prior to being discovered using any other procedure. This provides for the earliest detection of cancer possible.

Studies show:

  • An abnormal infrared image is the single most important marker of high risk for developing breast cancer
  • When added to a woman’s regular breast health checkups, a 61% increased survival rate has been realized.
  • When used as part of a multimodal approach (clinical examination + mammography + thermography) 95% of early stage cancers will be detected.
