Learn about the latest in DIGITAL INFRARED THERMAL IMAGING,
medical breast thermography and breast cancer awareness.
Thermal vision tests are designed to detect fast-growing, active tumors. The tests demonstrate heat patterns that can be strongly indicative of abnormalities, including those associated with breast cancer. They can also be used to evaluate sensory-nerve irritation or significant soft-tissue injuries and to identify pain sources. The primary way that thermal imaging works is by
Just for the Month of October, take advantage of our National Breast Cancer Awareness Month special offer!

The scientific link between alcohol and breast cancer is strong, but most of the research backing it has been done in white women, not diverse groups of women. Now, in a new analysis published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, scientists find the same risk among black women. They studied more than 22,000 women in
Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) Breast rashes have a habit of attracting attention. The skin may react to a number of triggers with redness, swelling, itching, pain, roughness, or other symptoms.
