What is breast thermography?

Breast Thermography is a safe and painless method of assessing breast health and offers information that no other procedure can provide.

Using thermal imaging technology, breast thermography can provide women with a marker for breast health, and with that a risk assessment to guide choices for further investigation or an opportunity to look at diet, lifestyle and other factors to help improve breast health. Women who want to take a pro-active approach to their breast health find great value in the additional information provided by thermography.


Studies show that the earliest detection is realised when multiple tests are used together. This multimodal approach includes breast self-examinations, physical breast exams by a doctor, thermography, mammography, ultrasound, MRI, and other tests that may be ordered by your doctor.

Breast thermography is different to mammography

Mammograms use x-rays to identify tumours or calcifications.

Thermograms measure heat signals with infra-red cameras, to identify metabolic activity levels.
