Welcome to Elevation Thermography!

If you are here, it is because you have chosen to live preventatively, not wait until you become sick; or maybe you are just tired of following the conventional path, which may not be giving you the answers you are looking for. When you have the knowledge and practice a healthy lifestyle, you can prevent cancer or disease from ever happening in the first place, and/or to never get it again. You have completed one of the first major steps, and that is seeking the truth about thermography - what it sees and how it all works. Below you will find what you need to know, and once you are ready to take the first step, please contact us to schedule an appointment.

 
DID YOU KNOW...?
An abnormal thermogram is the single most important marker of high risk for developing future breast cancer, ten times more significant than a family history of the disease?

The thermography procedure is simple, quick and painless, so relax and know you’re in expert hands.

The thermography scans are done by appointment only.  Patients are asked to download the appropriate and full Client Preparation sheet and read it prior to their appointment.  On the day of the appointment all forms must be completed with medical history and other pertinent information.  When you enter the office, you will find it very cool inside, this is for your body to acclimate down to a cooler temperature.  The screening test takes place in a relaxed, peaceful, and private room. You will disrobe and be given an exam cape.   The technician will enter the room after 10 minutes to take the images. Female technicians will take images of all women and our male Doctor will take images of all men.  A total of 9 breast images will be taken for the breast scan and 37 images will be taken for the full body scan all in which will be electronically sent and interpreted by a Medical Doctor located in California. The test results will be available within 3 to 5 business days.  The results will be discussed with the patient via follow-up appointment, or phone consultation.

 

Breast Health Guidelines include 20-30 year old women to have a scan done every three years.  Women 30 and above to be screened once a year.

At Elevation Thermography, we are dedicated to providing high-quality, personalized care with the most cutting edge technologies available. By continuously evaluating and upgrading our services, we ensure that all patients receive the best treatment for their needs.

As you already know, breast health is incredibly important, and breast problems can develop silently before anything can be seen on a mammogram.

Here at Elevation Thermography, we do not just deal with problems after they have formed (reactive).  We us a preventive health-care approach to keep you happy and healthy, and this is why we have developed a comprehensive Breast Health Screening Program using state-of-the-art Breast Thermography.

What is Thermography?

Thermography is a unique and vital technology shown to be effective in uncovering hidden health issues.  Breast Thermography is an exciting addition to breast imaging technology that was approved by the FDA in 1982.  It is an additional tool that doctors use to help determine breast health risk and can also indicate the risk of other breast conditions.  When Breast Thermography is used in combination with other tests, it gives your doctor an improved overall picture of breast health. 

Breast Thermography uses infra-red imaging technology to scan the breast and produces an incredibly detailed heat map, which can help detect the new blood vessels that grow from tumors, as well as hormonal imbalances, and other breast-health problems.

Breast thermography provides an additional piece of the puzzle and is not to be used alone.  However, when used together with other imaging and lab tests, it will provide your doctor with much more information, giving a more comprehensive picture of your overall breast health.  We have to change the conversation to monitoring breast HEALTH  and not just looking for sickness that already exists in the body.

Breast Thermography has also been described as early adjunct breast cancer detection. Would it be great if there were a test that could offer women true early information about their breast health in advance to prevent invasive tumor growth? Breast thermography has the ability to warn woman up to 10 years before any other procedure that a problem may be forming; thus, allowing for prompt and timely treatment.

 

Individualized breast cancer risk assessment. Are you personally at greater risk for breast cancer? Women with a family history are definitely at greater risk, but 75% of women who get breast cancer have no family history of the disease. If discovered, certain thermographic risk markers can warn a woman that she needs to be vigilant in monitoring her breast health.

An important role in breast cancer prevention. Is estrogen causing increased activity in your breasts? The greatest single risk factor for breast cancer is lifetime exposure of the breasts to estrogen. Breast Thermography plays a significant role in prevention by warning women if they have estrogen activation of their breasts. 

 

Accurate screening for women under 40. Do you know that approximately 1/3 of all breast cancers occur in women under 45? Breast thermography offers women in this age group a sensitive, non-invasive (no radiation and painless) method of monitoring their breast health.

"My experience with my full body thermography scan was great! Tiffany made me feel very comfortable during the scan and when I had a lot of questions over the scan. She is very knowledgeable and is truly passionate over health and this very safe, effective way to detect inflammation and disease. I highly recommend Elevation Thermography to everyone!"

What is the difference between a Mammogram and Breast Thermography?

Thermography uses no radiation and poses absolutely NO health risks to the patient. Consequently, scans may be performed at any frequency necessary.

 

Signs of pre-cancerous tissue, or early stage cancers that are too small to be found by physical examination and mammography, may be adjunctively discovered with thermography.

 

Certain types of cancers will not be detected on a mammogram for various reasons, but many of such cancers may be discovered with thermography. (3,6,7,8)

 

Difficulties in reading mammograms can occur in women who are on hormone replacement, nursing, or have fibrocystic, large dense, or enhanced breasts (6,8). These types of breast differences do not cause difficulties in reading thermograms.

 

Since thermography does not involve contact with the skin, the procedure is quite comfortable.

 

Studies show that an abnormal thermogram is the single most important marker of high risk for developing breast cancer, 10 times more significant than a family history of the disease (5).

 

Therefore, in the absence of other positive tests, an abnormal thermogram gives a woman an early warning that a pathological process may be occurring. By maintaining close monitoring of her breast health with serial thermography, self-breast exams, clinical examinations, and other tests, a woman has a much better chance of detecting cancer at its earliest stage and preventing invasive tumor growth.

 

Studies show up to a 61% increase in survival rate when thermography and mammography are used together.

It takes 8-10 years for a dime-sized tumor to grow. Breast Thermography can be the first signal that such a possibility is developing (3).


 

 

 

Unlike a mammogram, which is used to diagnose breast cancer by using X-Rays that find denser tissues, a Breast Thermography Machine uses Infra-Red Imaging to find “hotter” areas of the breast that are more active.

A Mammogram is like taking a still photograph that tells you how a breast looks.

Breast Thermography is like actively looking through a set of infra-red heat goggles that can tell you how the breast is working and healing.

Both tests give us different information and are both important when it comes to assessing your breast health.
