Medical Thermography Research & Benefits

Thermography is and has been near to my heart since I added it to my holistic clinic 12 years ago. It has led to life saving discoveries in many of my patients. It has also helped me uncover medical mysteries in myself and my patients allowing early treatments from a natural and holistic approach. Thermography is essential to my holistic healing practice as it allows me and my patients to see what therapies are effective and where more or less attention needs to be placed. So I ask you...."Are You A Picture Of Health?" Thermography is a painless, non-invasive, radiation free way to find out.

Here are some interesting medical studies about Thermography.

Breast Thermography and Cancer Risk Prediction MICHEL GAUTHERIE, PHD,' AND CHARLES M. GROS, MDt
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 111 thermograms. From approximately 58,000 patients, most of whom had breast complaints, examined between August 1965 and June 1977, the conditions of a group of 1,245 women were diagnosed at initial examination as either normal or benign dis- ease by conventional means, including physical examination, mammography, ultrasonography, and fine needle aspiration or biopsy, when indicated, but nevertheless categorized as stage Th 111 indicating a questionable thermal anomaly. Within five years, more than a third of the group had histologically con- firmed 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. Cancer 45:Sl-56, 1980. Link

Effectiveness of a noninvasive digital infrared thermal imaging system in
the detection of breast cancer.

BACKGROUND: Digital infrared thermal imaging (DITI) has resurfaced in this era of modernized computer technology. Its role in the detection of breast cancer is evaluated.
METHODS: In this prospective clinical trial, 92 patients for whom a breast biopsy was recommended based on prior mammogram or ultrasound underwent DITI. Three scores were generated: an overall risk score in the screening mode, a clinical score based on patient information and a third assessment by artificial neural network.
RESULTS: 60 of 94 biopsies were malignant and 34 were benign. DITI identified 58 of 60 malignancies, with 97% sensitivity, 44% specificity, and 82% negative predictive value depending on the mode used. Compared to an overall risk score of 0, a score of 3 or greater was significantly more likely to be associated with malignancy (30% vs 90%, P < .03).
CONCLUSION: DITI is a valuable adjunct to mammography and ultrasound, especially in women with dense breast parenchyma. Link

If you suffer with digestive problems, you are not alone. According to a recent survey, almost 75 percent of adult Americans complain of chronic gas, bloating, cramping, constipation, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and heartburn. Medical thermography can oftentimes show us the patterns of digestive problems.
