Thermography, or digital infrared thermal imaging, is a 15 minute, non-invasive test which offers the opportunity of earlier detection of breast disease than has been possible through breast self examination, doctor examination, or mammography alone.
All women can benefit from thermographic breast screening, but it is especially appropriate for younger women (30-50) whose denser breast tissue makes it more difficult for mammography to be effective. I am a firm believer in thermography and my wife has had one annually for years.
Thankfully, it is now available here in Titusville at the office of Dr. Donna Ivery, board certified OB/GYN (321-267-3787). The first session is scheduled for March 30, so call now to reserve your spot (they are filling up fast!).
