Breast and Body Thermography Screening at Pathways Holistic
Pathways Holistic Center, in Emmaus, is offering thermography screenings provided by PACT-Certified Thermography Technician Rebecca Reverie. Thermography is a state-of-the-art screening procedure that uses heat detection to locate areas of temperature differences in the body. Most pathological processes demonstrate a form of increased heat, and some neurological processes show excessive cold, or hyperthermia. Breast disease can be detected by looking for areas of excessive or increasing heat that may indicate areas of angiogenesis, or increase of blood vessels supplying a growing tumor.
Thermography has been used for breast cancer detection since 1956 and was cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1982 as an adjunctive procedure for breast cancer screening. There are more than 800 published studies in peer-reviewed journals about thermography of the breast alone, and most show the success rate of breast thermography to be greater than 90 percent. In addition to an eight-to-10- year earlier detection outcome, thermography involves no radiation, no compression and no contact
