Breast thermography is digital infrared imaging of the breasts and enables skilled practitioners the ability to detect "hot spots” and early warnings that a breast cancer may be forming. Thermography gives vital information that allows a woman the opportunity to reduce risk factors, make lifestyle changes and monitor her breast health more closely. With the support of her health care practitioner, each client becomes more pro-active in her own health maintenance. For more information about thermography, please see the article here.
