Breast Wellness and Thermal Imaging
1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. If it isn’t us, it is someone we know and love. Fortunately, we know that early detection can save lives. Also, we know that Thermal Imaging is one of the best ways to detect early, up to 8 years before other tests would show cancer.
What is Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging?
What is Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI)? DITI is an FDA-registered diagnostic imaging technique that records the thermal patterns of the body.
Physiological changes can occur within the body years before a tumor actually forms. By tracking the body from an early stage with thermal imaging, we can detect these disturbances and set forth a plan of defense to eliminate the problem before a person’s health is compromised and life put at risk.
Digital thermal imaging is entirely non-invasive, affordable, painless, and involves no radiation.
Digital thermography has been used successfully and safely for over a decade to detect physiological disturbances such as breast diseases, including cancer. But it can also help to detect:
- Thyroid dysfunction
- Nerve damage
- Detecting tumors & abnormal cells
- Other hidden risk factors
SureTouch Breast Imaging
SureTouch is a revolutionary Tactile Breast Imaging (TBI) technology that is making tremendous strides in the early screening and detection of breast disease. As with any form of cancer, early detection is key, and here are a few of the reasons why SureTouch is pioneering a “new world” in breast imaging technology:
Painless and Radiation-Free Imaging
Unlike other forms of breast disease screening, SureTouch does not rely on potentially harmful x-rays, and offers complete comfort throughout the entire exam. The whole process takes between 20-45 minutes depending on areas screened.
Imaging the Entire Breast
Did you know that over half of breast diseases develop in the upper outer quadrant of the breast? This area can be difficult to image with a mammogram, which is one of the many reasons we prefer SureTouch to mammograms and other traditional forms of breast imaging.
Nothing is worse than having an exam, then waiting days, or even weeks for results. With SureTouch, results are instant, and everything is explained in detail throughout the entire process.
Simply put, digital breast imaging with SureTouch is a more effective way to detect breast disease at an early stage, as opposed to a traditional mammogram.
DITI for Breast Imaging and Early Detection:
The American Cancer Society panel admits mammography has limitations – some women who are screened will have false alarms, some cancers will be missed and some will undergo unnecessary treatment. Women, especially African American women, are increasingly developing breast disease in their thirties. The worst thing that can be done is nothing at all.
