Incidence of breast cancer is rising, particularly in younger women. 1 in 9 women can expect a diagnosis of breast cancer in their lifetime. Thermocheck uses state of the art thermographic technology which scans the breasts using an infrared camera to produce a “thermogram”. This scan detects heat and not a lump. Breast tumours tend to have abnormal blood vessel patterns and increased metabolic activity that give off more heat than the surrounding tissue. These heat changes can occur between 6 and 10 years before a tumour is big enough to see on a mammogram. Therefore detecting this heat can enable earlier intervention and reduction of risk.
