Thermography vs Mammography

If you are a women, surely you are constantly being reminded how important it is to get regular mammograms. But are mammograms doing more harm than good? Here are some facts on mammogram:

  • Mammography cannot detect a tumour until after it has been growing for years and reaches a certain size. (It can only detect a 1cm tumour)

Read on to find out how Thermography works…

Thermography — or more accurately referred to as — Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI), is an industry technique to capture remotely objects’ surface temperatures. It works just like in the movies, when somebody holds a “binocular” and “sees” people in the darkness of the night. Those binocular-looking devices are nothing but an Infrared Camera that detects different surface temperatures of objects (being a human, an animal or any other object). Objects in nature are exposed to sun infrared radiation and emit themselves at different rates the infrared energy.
