Breast cancer is a terrible disease, and early detection is vital to a healthy prognosis. How can we screen early without the radiation exposure? Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging.
Early detection saves lives. This 15-minute non-invasive test is a valuable procedure and designed to improve detection of breast disease. There is no contact with the body of any kind, no radiation, and the procedure is painless. It uses Thermography, a process of infrared technology to spot abnormalities in your breasts by measuring temperature variations.
This state-of-the-art DITI (Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging)system is able to read functional changes in the breast at the critical point when a tumor begins to receive its own blood supply – before malignant cells have a chance to spread.
Mammograms continue to be the mantra we hear every October during the annual Breast Cancer Awareness month. This screening tool may help identify cancer but it certainly doesn’t prevent breast cancer. At Forum Health Knoxville, every month is breast cancer awareness month as we are always looking at risk factors and working towards strengthening the body.
Cancer cells have three basic characteristics. They multiply more rapidly than normal cells; they are less differentiated (immature); and they don’t die (apoptosis) when they are supposed to. Many factors either contribute to or help prevent this horrific chain of events. Our goal at Forum Health Knoxville, is to uncover these factors before the mammogram reveals cancer.
Dr. John Lee describes in his book, “What Your Doctor May Not Tell You about Breast Cancer,” risk factors that are not commonly discussed. We are vigilant to uncover all of these and more. Through testing, we can identify such risk factors as estrogen dominance, insulin resistance, elevated cortisol levels, and how your body metabolizes estrogen.
Furthermore, as a breast cancer survivor myself, I am dedicated to helping women avoid this diagnosis.
On Thursday, December 8, we will be offering thermogram screening. To schedule an appointment for the screening or for more information regarding true breast cancer prevention, call our office at (865) 675-9355.
Thermography is quickly becoming the new standard in the field of breast-cancer screening. This procedure is non-invasive, inexpensive, comfortable, and does not cause radiation exposure or compression of the breasts. On Thursday, December 8th, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., Forum Health Knoxville is will offer Thermography Breast Screening.
