The Value of Early Detection

Thermographic screening is the easiest, fastest and safest method of early detection.

“Screening” typically refers to the use of simple tests across a healthy population in order to identify individuals who may have disease, but do not yet have symptoms.

The earlier a disease is diagnosed, the more likely it is that it can be cured or successfully managed.  Managing a disease, especially early in its course, may lower its impact on your life or prevent or delay serious complications.

The most common disease associated with “early detection” is cancer.

The US spends billions of dollars to save late-stage cancer patients, trying to devise better drugs and chemotherapies that might kill a cancer at its strongest. This cure-driven approach has dominated cancer research since Richard Nixon declared war on the disease in 1971. But it has yielded meager results: The overall cancer mortality rate in the US has fallen by a scant 8 percent since 1975.  Heart disease deaths, by comparison, have dropped by nearly 60 percent in that period.

While Cancer takes approximately 566,000 lives each year, we overlook the far more staggering statistic:

  • More than a third of all Americans—some 120 million people—will be diagnosed with cancer sometime in their lives.

Cancer, in other words, has a perception problem. We lack the ability to see what’s going on inside the body, and see information on a molecular level.

Find and treat cancer early and that 566,000 figure will shrink.

This chart shows the growth of cancer cells and the implications it can have on successful treatment.

Cancer Growth

**Data show the time for a breast cancer to double in volume is 25 days to at least 1000 days with a typical value of about 100 days. Depending on breast tissue density and structure, mammography is usually capable of finding breast tumors at approximately 1 cc. Combining this information, we can estimate the usual preclinical time of breast cancer as 30 doublings at 100 day doubling time or a total of 8 years. This is the potential of early detection: To use data instead of drugs, to reveal a cancer before it reveals itself, and to leave the miracles for the patients who really need them.

It is well documented in all fields of medicine that the earliest detection leads to the best outcome.

Conventional medical technologies — such as blood tests, x-rays and MRIs are typically performed after symptoms appear.  The picture offered is often incomplete and obscured.

Thermography has been shown to identify vascular patterns associated with cancer cell growth years before it is detectable with mammography or other conventional diagnostic modalities.

Thermography detects temperature patterns associated with the blood flow which feeds cancer cells or with the blood flow associated with inflammation.  Inflammation will always precede symptoms of a disease or abnormality.
It is for this reason that Thermography is the ideal method of early detection of cancer.


In addition to cancer, Thermography can provide early detection of:

  • Cardio-Vascular Disease – responsible for more than 50% of US deaths annually
  • Diabetes
  • Thyroid and Metabolic Disorders
  • Hormonal Imbalances
  • Digestive Disorders
  • Sinus and Allergy Problems
  • Muskuloskeletal Problems, such as
    • TMJ
    • Carpal Tunnel
    • Herniated Disks
    • Undiagnosed Pain
  • Nervous System Disorders
  • Other forms of Undiagnosed Pain









**Thermography is not a stand-alone test and does not replace mammography or any other imaging device.
