What exactly IS Thermography and how does it differ from Mammograms?
According to a report in the American Journal of Radiology, breast thermography has 99% sensitivity, 90% specificity, and 90% accuracy in detecting breast cancer in women under age 55. There is no other screening method that has as high of efficacy as breast thermography: the sensitivity for physical breast examinations (feeling for lumps)is 18%, mammography is 70% , and MRI is 71%. Sensitive breast tissue is not exposed to harmful radiation which can result in increased risk of breast cancer, any signs of breast cancer can be detected years before they are otherwise detectable by mammogram and it's completely non-invasive (no squishing or squeezing)
