Infrared Mammography helps us to detect more breast cancer in cases where X-Ray Mammography is equivocal and it helps to have a closer follow up in high-risk patients in young people where frequent X-Ray usage is not indicated.
No danger from radiation, in contrast to X-Ray Mammography where each study is equivalent to 300 chest X-Rays, and no pain or discomfort from compression, Infrared Mammography should replace X-Ray Mammography for routine screening for breast cancer. After doing over 1,000 Infrared Mammograms we are convinced that this procedure is safe, effective and gives us the time to reverse early breast changes using an intense nutritional protocol. What amazes us is the absence of any abnormalities noted on confirmatory X-Ray Mammography when the Infrared Mammogram is rated a TH-3 and TH-4 clearly demonstrating the sensitivity of this procedure. Reversal of these breast changes with our nutritional protocol suggests that what we are seeing and detecting are not false positives but early breast pathology. We strongly recommend physicians become informed about this procedure.
I am grateful to be able to evaluate my patients with the added modality of Infrared Mammography. Some of our patients are reluctant to get annual X-Ray Mammograms and this imaging allows another way for them to be evaluated. There are no radiation risks to the patients which they really appreciate. In my practice we use a variety of treatments to address any abnormalities on an Infrared Mammogram and then repeat the study to follow the patient’s progress. Since we are able to do something about the early abnormalities and usually reverse them, we feel that we are preventing the progression of a potentially precancerous condition. Also, for those patients who have dense breast tissue and the X-Ray Mammogram is not a very good tool, we can use Infrared Mammograms either along with X-Ray Mammography or alternating. Often the radiologist will report that due to the density of the breasts they cannot be certain that everything is OK. The Infrared Mammogram offers another way to look at that tissue and see if it reacts in a physiologic/normal fashion.
