Thermography Detects Breast Cancer Sooner than X-Rays

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Dr. Malcolm Sickels, owner of Ann Arbor Thermography, urges women to schedule a thermography appointment. Thermography uses state-of-the-art, U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved infrared technology to provide an image of the body that can detect physiological changes in the breast tissue that have been shown to correlate with pre-disease or disease states. Because thermal imaging detects changes at the cellular level, studies suggest that this test can detect activity eight to 10 years before any other test. All studies are read by board-certified physicians for reliability and accountability.

            Sickels says, “Women of all ages are given the opportunity to increase their chance of detecting breast disease early on. Early detection of changes and patterns seen on thermography images can enable a person to take early prevention measures. It is particularly useful for women under 50, where mammography is less effective because of increased breast density.”
