One third of all breast cancers occur in women below the age of 45.
In this pre-menopausal age group mammography is less accurate in picking
up cancers because pre-menopausal women have denser breast tissue than
post-menopausal women. Dense breast tissue is not an issue with
thermography. Thermography is an FDA adjunct to mammography and can be
used safely at any age.
Thermography, with its non-radiation, non-contact and low-cost basis
has been clearly demonstrated to be a valuable and safe early risk
marker of breast pathology, and an excellent case management tool for
the ongoing monitoring and treatment of breast disease when used under
carefully controlled clinical protocols.
