Podcast 5: Internet Boomer on Breast Health And Thermography

Terry Ryan, Internet Boomer, talks with Rita Rimmer, from Health Imaging, about breast cancer and early detection using thermography.
Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI) offers women and men the opportunity of earlier detection of developing breast disease than has been possible through breast self-examination, medical examination or mammography alone.
DITI detects subtle changes in the physiology of the breast that can indicate developing pathology, including cancer, fibrocystic changes, infection or vascular disease. With continued, yearly monitoring after a stable baseline is established, DITI can alert you and your doctor to changes that can indicate early stage breast disease.
Screening with DITI is recommended for all women (and men). It is especially valuable for women under the age of 50, whose denser breast tissue makes detection with mammography less effective. Women are encouraged to begin thermal imaging screening by the age of 20. DITI is also valuable for women with breast implants; those women whove had breast cancer; and those who avoid screening because of the discomfort or mistrust of mammograms.
