Case 2

This image is an infrared thermogram of a 52 year-old woman that was performed for screening purposes. This thermal imaging demonstrates substantial contrast to that of case 1. There is very little thermovascular pattern and there is only a small hyperthermic area in the right upper, outer breast that is not thermally significant. Thermal Risk Classification is low, indicating low risk of breast disease.

Breast examination identified no masses, palpable lymph nodes, contour changes, or nipple discharge.

I recommended a year follow-up image to be performed to continue to assess risk. I also counseled the patient in the avoidance dietary and lifestyle factors that are known to increase breast cancer risk as well as adding supplements proven to decrease the incidence and spread of breast cancer.
