Paper Abstract

Thermography may be a helpful modality in the detection of breast cancer. Utilizing agreed upon criteria for the evaluation of breast thermograms, approximately 15-20% of women will have a positive or abnormal thermogram. Some results suggest that this group may contain as many as 80% of breast cancer patients. (2) If these subjective impressions prove to be true over the next few years, thermography may be extremely useful in the future as a screening method.
