Every woman would benefit from including thermography as part of her regular breast and general health care.
Breast cancers can be very aggressive in younger women. According to American Cancer Society approximately 15% of all breast cancers occur in women under the age of 45. There are no clear guidelines for the use of imaging procedures during these years. With the addition of Digital Infrared Imaging, women in this age group have a tool that they can add to their regular breast health check-ups. Also, it can be highly beneficial for women of all ages who, for many reasons, are unable or unwilling to undergo routine mammography.
GENERAL BREAST THERMOGRAPHY GUIDELINES:
Initial infrared scan by age 20
20-30 years of age – every 3 years
30 years of age and over – every year
- initially you have two thermograms three months apart to establish your baseline.
- follow-ups should be based on the risk rating seen in your study (anywhere between 6 months and 5 years).
- optional assessment of other risk factors based on your biochemical individuality and lifestyle factors.
