What is Infrared Thermography?
Infrared Breast Thermography (also known as No-Touch or Non-Contact Breast Scan) is actually a non-contact method of helping detect breast cancer earlier. Another advantage is thermography does not emit cancer causing radiation in the first place. The infrared digital camera shoots thermal pictures that reveal minor alterations (thermal signs) in the physiology of the breast, therefore helping detect cancer tumors approximately 10 years in advance of other techniques like mammography or palpation.
What is the Difference Between Infrared Breast Thermography and Whole Body Thermography?
In our office we offer the most progressive thermography tests used by the best clinics in the World to determine the risk of developing breast cancer and other diseases.
How does it feel when during mammography screening your breasts are tightly squeezed between two cold plates through which radiation enters your body? With Infrared Breast Thermography there is no pain and it’s as safe as regular photography, so safe that you can do it hundreds of times a day with no damaging effect to your body.
Infrared Breast Thermography is a particularly good tool for small and dense breast tissue which many younger women have and, it is safe for women with breast implants. Furthermore, it assesses a larger area such as under the armpits and upper chest, areas that mammography cannot check.
Thermography can detect the possibility of breast cancer much earlier then mammography, because it can image the earlier stages of increased blood supply to cancer cells, which is a necessary step before they can grow into a detectable size tumor. Using Contact Regulation Thermography (CRT) you will learn about your circulation and heart function, strength of your immune system, health of your teeth and gums, lymphatic system, breast or prostate, stomach and intestines, body toxicity and ability to detox and adrenal stress level.
During your visit we will help you to choose the best healing or preventative strategy. Both scans are SAFE, NON-INVASIVE, PAINLESS and ACCURATE.
While this is a highly accurate method of revealing thermal signs consistent with thermal signs known to be correlated with cancer symptoms, it has been rarely employed in the medical establishment, but that is rapidly changing.
The cost of Infrared Non-Contact Breast Thermography is $275.
Thermography carries a 9% for both false positive readings, as well as false negatives – and is pain-freeproviding a complete preview of the torso and the under arm area.
The Non-Cancerous (Benign) Thermography Report: The image below (Figure 1) shows symmetrical vascular-like properties as hot – looking like bolts of lightening. You can see the same bi-lateral features (both sides), indicating it is normal. In addition, these traits generally responded autonomously, meaning that if the woman were to place her hands to a cold surface such as ice, the readings (colors) will obviously change as they should. This reading is determined to be benign because there’s no malignancy risk.
Abnormal or Irregular Thermography Report: The image below (Figure 2) exhibits vascular-like hyperthermic characteristic in the outside portion (lateral) of the breast on the right (point 1). The characteristics here are abnormal, and the temperature is >1.4ºC over the base temperature levels of the opposite breast in point 2, (a pathological indication.) This specific reading has a 96% confirmation of malignancy. When adding ‘F’ to TH-5F, it shows hypothermic properties (cold) in the lower portion (caudal) of the breast, pointing to fiber-adenoma cyst that is benign.
Thermal Graphic Revealing Yellow Colored Banding: This third picture (Figure 3) could have a rating of TH2. Here the hyperthermic semetric characteristics in the busts (both breast), implies a metabolic imbalance. Such a vascularity is often times seen in women who are pregnant – which is deemed normal. However, when present in women who are menopausal, it means that estrogen is in abundance, or that there is an imbalance in the ratio of estrogen to progesterone. This is referred of the breast if not otherwise addressed. Additional, hormone testing
is advised, together with natural supplementing as a preventative course.
Sad Breast Case Study
This case by Dr. Anthony Piana, demonstrates the detection of a cancer as far back as 2009 when the patient had a lumpectomy. The doctor did not use thermal imaging to detect the margins of the tumor and it grew back. In 2012 she was upset at the way her case was handled and refused surgery. She passed away in 2014. We have learned some important information from this and is listed in the image.

Preparing for breast thermography exam?

“Our Interpreters are Highly Trained TAS Thermographers and Provide Easy to Understand Reports WITHIN 24 HOURS.”
The digital thermography (CBT) test done by TAS labs is known for increasing the breast cancer rate of survival by 61%. TAS believes from experience that long-term breast cancer survival will be positively affected by the widespread use of thermography screenings – as long as the exams and test interpretations are carried out correctly. Many times these crucial factors are overlooked, or even ignored.

Breast thermography exams follow strict guidelines for individual preparation and exam criteria, utilizing the highest standards for image capturing and interpretation. TAS provides the critical factors that contribute to the credibility of a successful practice of breast thermography.
TAS breast thermography interpretations are done on it’s proprietary computerized program which conforms to global standards, embodying clinical case studies of over 110,000 patients. TAS generates highly accurate, credible and objective interpretations. Their proprietary software developed to the “Gautherie” gold standard in breast thermography protocol, ensures the accuracy and objectivity of it’s interpretations. The interpretation methodology TAS employs takes into account more than 20 critical quantitative and qualitative thermopathological markers, in over 15 years of clinical studies encompassing over 110,000 symptomatic individual patients.
TAS Examination Protocol (CBT assessment protocol) has been embraced and adopted by the thermography community since it was initially introduced in 1982 by it’s founder. Today TAS’s underlying fundamentals and methodology remains the standard in accurate and trusted thermography interpretations.
Breast Cancer Survival Rates – Statistics
Most health professionals conclude that the risk associated with breast cancer in females less than 35 years old, is not important enough to take the chance with radiation. Likewise, the odds for breast cancer in women over 55 warrants the hazard of mammograms. There is disagreement regarding mammography statistics for women from age 40 to 45. In 1992 a Canadian National Breast Cancer Study gave the impression that mammography does not do anything to prevent the death of women between 40 to 50 years old. The study implies women in that age group who are screened regularly, are more likely to die from breast cancer.
Alternative Medicine, a book by Burton Goldberg, states that women under the age of fifty should not have screening mammograms. This is in contrast to advice from the American Cancer Society, which recommends bi-annual mammograms for women between the ages of forty to forty-nine. A consensus panel that was appointed by the NIH in 1997, stated that no evidence was in existence to support the notion that mammograms could save the lives of women in this age group. In fact, the panel found that mammograms might be detrimental rather than helpful. The panel suggests that patients discuss the risks with their doctors and then decide.
