Thermography

May Detect Breast Cancer up to 8-10 Years Sooner

At Groton Wellness Medical Center we offer Breast Thermography. While mammograms have been widely used for detecting breast cancer, the Food and Drug Administration approved thermography as a screening tool in 1982. Breast thermography is available by appointment only on some Saturdays and the last Tuesday of each month. Breast tumors take up to 10 years to develop, and mammograms may not detect the development as early as thermographic imaging. The earlier a tumor is found the sooner treatment can begin, and the more successful the outcome is likely to be.

Thermography is based on the principle of temperature variation. It detects the slight increase in heat associated with chemical and blood vessel activity in pre-cancerous tissue and the areas surrounding a developing breast cancer. Images are captured with ultra-sensitive infrared cameras and analyzed with sophisticated computers that look for minute increases in surface temperature and vascular changes that may be occurring in the breast. Thermography of the breast is an excellent, non-invasive, adjunctive examination. It shows physiologic changes that may indicate tumor proliferation. It’s also comfortable and safe, using neither radiation nor compression.

We offer thermography to screen these part of the body:

  • upper body
  • full body
  • arms & hands
  • legs & feet
  • head & neck

 

Thermography Screening for Earliest Detection

Detecting Pathogenic Change at a Cellular Level

Thermographic imaging is a safe, radiation-free method of screening for early detection of breast cancer and inflammation that is the precursor to many cancers and chronic disease. Early detection is the key to optimal health with time to use preventive measures, rather than detecting disease at a stage where treatment is imminently required.

Please check if you, your family members or friends have any of these diseases or a genetic predisposition to these diseases and want to help prevent them.

Testimonials

“Good Afternoon Ann, Thank you for making the thermography procedure so comfortable for me. You explained the protocol very well before, during and after the test and you answered every one of my questions in a professional manner.  The test itself was painless and didn’t take that long. 

The reports I received via email,  were very detailed and the images which were in both black/white and color were clear and easy to understand.  During the aftercare consult via telephone, you carefully went over each page and image pointing out the most important areas of possible concern and making recommendations for further follow-ups.
 
Ann, you made this thermography test a very positive experience and I thank you very much for that.”
 
Take care, Eileen H.

 

To anyone considering breast thermography vs. breast mammography, I’d like to share my recent experience with Ann Barker at Breast Awareness Imaging, LLC., a thermography provider.  Ann sees clients at two local offices, making it convenient for many.  Although my PCP is not yet on board with thermography, apparently due to lack of education thus far, four other health care providers of mine, all of whom I hold in high regard, including a medical doctor, a nurse midwife/OB-GYN, a naturopathic doctor, and a massage therapist, not only knew of the technology and advantages of thermographic imaging, but highly endorsed it and encouraged me to seek it out.  Mainstream medicine and insurance coverage seem lagging in providing care and coverage of thermography, but I hope, and believe, that will change.

My personal experience and exam were comfortable, Ann was knowledgeable and supportive, my personal needs and modesty were respected, Ann explained all aspects and follow-up of the procedure in terms I could understand.  My report of findings from the exam was very detailed and thorough, and came back to me within a few days, and was also provided to my PCP.  I will never go back to regular breast mammography because of the increased accuracy, safety, and comfort of the thermographic imaging procedure.  I have recommended this, and Ann, to others desiring an alternative exam of breasts and other body-areas.”

All best wishes,
Ellen

 

This incredible screening is something I wanted to pass on to you all, as womanAnn Barker is extremely professional, takes her time, listens to you, and respects your dignity.

Thank you so much for your information and calming presence yesterday Ann. The anxiety I felt was completely diffused by your wonder-filled energy.

My insurance does not cover Thermography Imaging (why not??). At the end of the day, you’re paying for quality care and the integrity of the healthcare facility (Groton Wellness) where you are receiving in my opinion, the best possible holistic care in the country.

If you are reading this look no further. I look forward to my next appointment.

Gratefully,
Sue
