THERMOGRAPHIC DIAGNOSTIC BREAST IMAGING
Discover Health Through Awareness
Safe, Non-invasive & Highly Sensitive
What is Thermography?
Thermography uses state of the art, FDA approved infra-red technology to provide an image of the body’s physiologic responses. This is a totally safe, non-radiologic, non-invasive, painless test with absolutely no known adverse effects and no contraindications. It can be used at any age and provides a screening tool far superior to others in early stages of some diseases.
Medical Thermal Imaging has been available for more than 50 years, and its non-medical applications pre-date that by a decade. This tool has withstood the test of time and has proven itself diagnostically. With the increasing technological advances of thermal imaging cameras and the newest and the best software available, a better question would be… “Why not Thermography?”
Breast Health Assessment
The earliest possible indication of abnormalities allows for the earliest possible intervention.
Thermograph detects the physiologic changes in the breast tissue that have been shown to correlate with cancerous or pre-cancerous states. Since thermal imaging detects changes at the cellular level, studies suggest that this test can detect activity eight to ten years BEFORE any other test. Thermography has been determined to have an average sensitivity and specificity of 90%, and when used as part of a comprehensive multifaceted approach (clinical examination, thermography and anatomic testing) will lead to early detection of 95% of early stage cancers. This increases the long term survival rate by as much as 60%.
Thermography can be done on women of any age and men as well. It is especially useful in the under 40 year old group (where breast tissue is denser), in high risk groups (children of breast cancer patients), on those who have been on long term hormonal therapy, those with breast implants and individuals who have undergone surgery.
Philip Getson, D.O., has been a Medical Thermographer since 1982. He is a Board Certified Family Physician and Board Certified by the American Academy of Thermology and four other Thermographic Boards. All studies are performed under strict protocols established by the worldwide thermographic community.
Dr. Getson maintains an active medical practice in the area. He will personally interpret all thermal images and provide you with a report of same.
Thermo Imaging takes place at Twin Ponds Integrative Health Center
