Camera Thermography, or Breast Thermography, uses a heat sensitive camera to detect surface changes in body temperature. The only thing it detects is "abnormalities" on a surface level. In fact, when this test was originally created, the technology was used to detect hot and cold air leaks in construction sites and housing units. Because of this, this test
does not measure any functionality of the actual breasts. Instead, it is left largely up to the interpretation of the technician administering the test to determine if there is, in fact, abnormalities that require further testing. At which point, they will simply recommend a follow-up procedure such as a mammogram.
Regulation Thermography, or Regulation Thermometry, was created by medical doctors in Germany over 40 years ago. It uses a probe to measure 119 specific individual points over not only the breast but every major organ and system of the body. Why is this important? Because breast tissue can be influenced by a number of different factors including teeth, gums, organs, lymphatics, endocrine system, body acidity and more. Regulation Thermography identifies ALL of the influencing factors that CONTRIBUTE to the health of your breasts. And rather than relying on the interpretation of what it "looks like" the results are generated by years of scientific data culminating in a very thoroughly tested algorithm for the highest degree of accuracy possible.
Regulation Thermometry allows me to find and address the underlying issues that play a role in breast health. The system looks at all the organ systems and tells us what is going on so we can better target therapies. We're then able to see therapy results and show patients this on the thermometry report.
