How good is thermography in breast cancer screening?


With the present level of experience and with current equipment, thermography does not seem sufficiently reliable to substitute for either clinical examination or mammography in breast cancer detection. It is, however, of adjunctive value and can be used in frequent screening and in younger individuals. Women with positive thermograms should be followed more closely, both clinically and radiographically, than the average patient.
