Digital infrared thermal imaging, otherwise known as thermography is what you are looking for! A thermogram is an early detection and screening device that detects changes in breast tissue earlier than a mammogram can. It is pain-free, radiation-free and FDA registered for breast screening. The procedure takes 20 minutes and reports are returned within two weeks. The scans are read by M.D.’s who are board certified in thermology. An initial scan is followed three months later by a second scan to establish a baseline. Follow ups are usually recommended annually after a baseline is established.
Maria E. Belluccio, RN, AP, Doctor of Oriental Medicine is a Certified Clinical Thermographer who has been offering thermography for seven years and has a holistic practice in Tampa.

Thermography is thermal imaging for the breast and body. There is no compression, no radiation, and it is 8-10 years earlier detection than a mammogram. It is ...over 97% accurate in the early detection of breast cancer.... Mammography is detection once you have cancer; thermography is used in the prevention of breast cancer, by alerting you early enough to make the changes (nutritional/hormonal) to REVERSE the cancer before it actually becomes a tumor.
