Medical thermography, using an infra-red digital camera, can find cancer in breasts that mammograms can't.
The thermal imaging uses physiologic changes– increased blood flow to the cancers– to find abnormal growth. Since these changes occur before the tumor is large enough to be found by a mammogram, thermography can find cancers well before they can be picked up my mammograms.
The cancer seen in this series could not be found by mammogram until the final image, 1 year after the thermogram was suspicious.
The image on the right is an inflammatory breast cancer that had no symptoms and would not show up on a mammogram.
All of this is done completely painlessly: there is no compression and no radiation.
