 Save money on initial thermogram! A $245 value for $150! 

With a highly experienced staff that is certified through the International Academy of Clinical Thermography.   Thermography of Iowa provides you with an advanced computerized thermal imaging and we are dedicated to providing one of the most important adjunctive breast imaging procedures available.  It is our primary goal to raise the awareness of the importance of monitoring one’s breast health in the fight against breast cancer.

We recommend women follow guidelines for Breast Thermography issued by the American Cancer Society. You will then be able to compare your baseline breast thermogram to a follow-up thermograms to monitor any changes that may be taking place.

Breast Thermography Guidelines for Early Detection

Initial infrared scan by age 20
20-30 years of age – every 3 years
30 years of age and over – every year

Our technicians are also trained to do full-body thermograms.  We can image specific areas of the body such as the head/neck for thyroid activity or possible dental infections. As an example, the majority of the time, dental infections do not cause much pain yet can undermine our health. Thermography verified inflammation in the area where a recent patient’s had a concern about a tooth…her dentist’s standard x-ray did not.

 Disclaimer: Breast thermography offers women information that no other procedure can provide. However, breast thermography is not a replacement for or alternative to mammography or any other form of breast imaging. Breast thermography is meant to be used in addition to mammography and other tests or procedures. Breast thermography and mammography are complementary procedures; one test does not replace the other. All thermography reports are meant to identify thermal emissions that suggest potential risk markers only and do not in any way suggest diagnosis and/or treatment. Studies show that the earliest detection is realized when multiple tests are used together. This multimodal approach includes breast self-examinations, physical breast exams by a doctor, mammography, ultrasound, MRI, thermography, and other tests that may be ordered by your doctor.

Understanding your TH level

Understanding Your Risk Rating

All infrared breast examinations are placed in a specific TH (thermobiological) risk category. Breast thermograms are graded on a scale from TH1 to TH5.  As the TH values rise from a TH3 and above there is an increasing risk that an abnormal process may be present, or that you might be at a higher risk for cancer in the future.

Thermography of Iowa

Thermography of Iowa is dedicated to providing information and services relating to breast health, and individualized risk assessment. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, and the risk increases with age (1). Risk is also higher in women whose close relatives have had the disease. Women without children, and those who have had their first child after age 30, also seem to be at higher risk. However, every woman is at risk of developing breast cancer. Current research indicates that 1 in every 8 women in the US will get breast cancer in their lifetime (1).  Thermography of Iowa is committed to helping women (and men) learn more about prevention and early discovery by using breast thermography as an adjunctive tool.
