Facts to Consider about 

Breast Thermography

  • Safe, easy, pain-free and radiation-free


  • FDA cleared for adjunctive breast screening to be used with standard imaging procedures (mammograms and ultrasounds, as recommended by your doctor)


  • No contact or compression of breast tissue 


  • Entire chest can be imaged, including underarms


  • Safely images breasts with implants


  • No limitation for varying breast sizes, small or large


  • Available for women who would like additional breast imaging, such as younger women or women with concerns due to family history, BRCA gene mutations, and other risk factors


For women new to breast thermography,

we recommend our Complete Breast Evaluation service,

which includes your initial breast scan and required breast baseline scan

three months later. Read below for more information.​

How to get started with breast thermography:

Every woman has a unique thermal pattern in the breast region, it is as unique as a fingerprint.  Because thermal imaging looks for changes in your unique patterns over time, it is essential that every woman completes an initial breast scan AND a comparison breast scan in 3 months.  This helps to ensure that the breast tissue is not changing suspiciously, it is stable and the reading thermologist can officially confirm your pattern.  Once this is completed, the thermologist can recommend routine annual scans.  This is absolutely necessary for the proper use of medical thermography for breast imaging purposes.


We recommend women start utilizing thermography for their advantage around age 30:

  • It is very helpful to establish a baseline before experiencing a lump or area of concern.

  • Breast cancer can take several years to develop and we want to observe the earliest changes. 

  • When it does occur in younger women, breast cancer is faster-growing and more aggressive.

  • Traditional imaging (i.e. mammography) is not recommended until age 40 and the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force actually recommends the average woman wait until age 50 to begin biennial (every two years) mammogram screenings. Although breast cancer is less prevalent in women younger than 50, we all know that it happens and we have seen this first-hand with women in their 30's with no family history.

  • 85% of women with breast cancer DO NOT have family history of breast cancer.

  • Awareness of your overall breast health (possible inflammation, hormone imbalance, lymph congestion) can inspire you to make healthy choices now and reduce your risk.

Breast thermography is not a replacement for mammography or any other form of breast imaging. Breast thermography is meant to be used in addition to mammography and other tests. Breast thermography and mammography are complementary procedures, one does not replace the other. All thermography reports are meant to identify thermal emissions that suggest potential risk markers only and do not in any way suggest diagnosis and/or treatment. According to studies, earliest detection is realized when multiple tests are used together. This approach includes breast self-examinations, physical breast exams by a doctor, mammography, ultrasound, MRI, thermography, and other tests that may be ordered by your physician.
