While mammograms have been the widely accepted (and strongly promoted) method of screening for breast cancer since the 1950′s, the evidence now points strongly towards mammograms not only being unreliable in their role of screening, but in fact being responsible for posing real dangers to those women who have them! (see my previous article, ‘Mammograms ~ what your doctor won’t tell you!’)
The good news? There’s a safe and non-invasive alternative, and it’s called Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI). Approved for clinical use in 1982, this quick and easy procedure that is not only pain-free and side-effect free, but most importantly radiation-free, is now widely available! This device makes use of an infra-red imaging camera that is used to detect subtle changes in skin temperatures that can indicate inflammation of the tissues which precedes cancer development.
DITI is a highly sensitive screening method that can pick up what would otherwise be imperceptible changes. It works by detecting physiological changes in the tissues (rather than looking for lumps as in mammography) and as a result,abnormal changes in the breast can be detected 10 years prior to that of a mammogram!
It is a very safe monitoring device for women of all ages, even for those very young women where mammography is especially contraindicated. It is often used for full-body imaging (not just the breast tissue) and is highly sensitive to pathology of the muscles, blood vessels, nerve and bone tissues throughout the body potentially revealing other problem areas.
So why then, if DITI is such a safe alternative to mammography, has it not been promoted as such by the various cancer groups? A conflict of interest is the reason! Take the ACS (American Cancer Society) for example, which has strong ties with the mammography industry. Five of their recent presidents have been radiologists, ensuring the ongoing support of the mammography industry who in turn conduct research for the ACS and donate considerable funds to it. In addition, the ACS supports several of the large manufacturers of mammogram equipment and film, who in turn, back ACS. It is a gigantic racket that prevents people from hearing the truth! As a result, safe and viable alternatives that pose a threat to mammography, are ignored or attacked. It’s all about the almighty dollar and not your health!
In summary, those women who wish to avoid the risks of radiation that regular mammograms pose (including increasing the risk and spread of breast cancer), should consider DITI instead as an annual screening test, as well as using it at times when potential problems are identified. This can be combined with the use of CBE (clinical breast examination) and monthly BSE (breast self examination) as a safe and effective method of identifying and monitoring all breast pathology.
