Digital Thermography

Breast (or other body areas) Thermography is the use of a ultra-sensitive infrared camera and sophisticated computer to detect, analyze, and produce high-resolution diagnostic images. The procedure is based on the principle that chemical and blood vessel activity in both pre-cancerous tissue and the area surrounding a developing cancer or disease is almost always higher. Since pre-cancerous and cancerous masses are highly metabolic tissues, they need an abundant supply of nutrients to maintain their growth. In order to do this they increase circulation to their cells by sending out chemicals to keep existing blood vessels open, recruit dormant vessels, and create new ones. This process results in an increase in regional surface temperatures of the body. Thermography can detect the temperature and vascular changes.
