Dense Breast Tissue...Did You Know A Mammo Can Miss Dis-ease?

Have you been diagnosed with dense breast tissue?
Please take a moment and consider Thermography breast screening.



Below is an abstract from the Radiological Society Of North America:

Despite recent improvements in mammography equipment and technique, the radiographically dense breast remains difficult to image. The problems in imaging the dense breast account for a large percentage of the cases of mammographically "missed" carcinomas. Other imaging modalities--such as ultrasonography, transillumination, THERMOGRAPHY, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and radionuclide imaging--have been investigated for use in breast cancer detection. This overview discusses the current problems associated with imaging of the radiographically dense breast and suggests some avenues for investigation to develop solutions to these problems.

Breast thermography and cancer risk prediction.Gautherie M, Gros CM.Thermography makes a significant contribution to the evaluation of patients suspected of having breast cancer. The obviously abnormal thermogram carries with it a high risk of cancer. This report summarizes the results of patients with questionable or stage Th III thermograms. From approximately 58,000 patients, most of whom had breast complaints, examined between August 1965 and June 1977, the conditions or a group of 1,245 women were diagnosed at initial examination as either normal or benign disease by conventional means, including physical examination, mammography, ultrasonography, and fine needle aspiration or biopsy, when indicated, but nevertheless categorized as stage Th III indicating a questionable thermal anomaly. Within five years, more than a third of the group had histologically confirmed cancers. The more rapidly growing lesions with shorter doubling times usually show progressive thermographic abnormalities consistent with the increased metabolic heat production associated with such cancers. Thermography is useful not only as a predictor of risk factor for cancer but also to assess the more rapidly growing neoplasms.

More Food For Thought:

"In some states, mammography providers are required to inform women who have a mammogram about breast density in general or about whether they have dense breasts. Many states now require that women with dense breasts be covered by insurance for supplemental imaging tests".
