About Thermography in our office
Greystone Chiropractic has a breast thermography lab in house. We have a female certified thermographer who is trained to take all of the necessary pictures that will be read by a board-certified thermologist. They will then send a full report on your scan with all recommendations.
Breast Thermography is a state-of-the-art screening procedure to provide detection of irregularities in breast tissue. Thermography can detect abnormalities such as inflammation and heat patterns (vascular changes) much earlier than traditional screening methods. Earlier awareness of problems means sooner and potentially more effective treatment. Knowing this information as early as possible means that patients can make lifestyle changes years before a devastating condition develops.
Thermography - An Important Tool for Breast Health
Breast thermography should not be considered as an alternative to mammograms, but as an adjunct examination that should be part of every woman's regular breast health regimen. Women of all ages should use a combination of techniques - including breast self-examinations, physical examinations by a physician, thermography, mammography and sometimes ultrasound or MRI examinations if needed - to ensure the earliest detection possible. Thermography can often point out the need for more intensive examination to make a complete diagnosis.
