Thermal imaging being studied as breast cancer screening tool

While I am not a science expert, I feel as if any news is good news when it comes to the study of new types of breast cancer screening.

  2. Thanks for sharing this information. From my personal experience, I don't want this to give anyone a false sense of security if they just do this and it comes out negative. When I first found a lump in 2005, before it was actually diagnosed, I had a thermogram, a diagnostic mammogram and an ultrasound - all three tests were negative. It wasn't until 2008 when I had an excision biopsy and the little bugger was examined under a microscope that I was able to get a diagnosis. I called the radiologist that read the thermogram, whom I know personally and deeply trust, and asked him to take another look in light of the diagnosis. He said nothing was visible on the study.

    It does not mean this test is not useful, but so far no test is perfect, and every angle we can use to examine the possibilities will help.
