Conspicuous Vascular Patterns and Estrogen Stimulation

Conspicuous Vascular Patterns and Estrogen Stimulation

Thermal Images Copyright The Thermogram CenterNote the extensive vasodilation in the left image. The right image followed 3 months of nutritionally-based estrogen metabolism support.* Note the significant reduction in vasodilation, suggesting a decrease in estrogen stimulation. Her Hormonal Grade decreased from 3 to 1. For more information on this subject, please visit the "Understanding Estrogen Stimulation and Hormonal Grades" page.

Your interpretive report includes a Thermobiological Risk Rating for each breast (For more information on this subject, please visit the "Understanding Thermobiological Risk" page.) and a Hormonal Grade to assess the level of vascular dilation, which increases with estrogen stimulation in the breasts. This information may be important given that excess estrogen stimulation creates more favorable conditions for tumor development and because breast tissue can hold many times more estrogen than levels revealed in typical blood tests.

Birth Control Pills and Estrogen Stimulation

This 38 year old client had no breast complaints, but had previously used birth control pills for 15 years. While she had not used birth control pills for about a year, her Hormonal Grade is 4, consistent with stimulation by estrogen as seen during lactation.

Without her imaging, the client would not have been aware of her potential estrogen stimulation and associated risk. She is now seeking treatment to reduce her breast estrogen stimulation.*

Thermal Imaging Helps Clients…

Thermal Imaging Helps Clients Obtain Breast Cancer Diagnoses in Spite of Normal Mammograms

Thermal Images Copyright The Thermogram CenterThis 35 year-old client had a normal mammogram the month prior to thermal imaging. With a thermal imaging report including high thermobiological risk in the right breast, the client requested a biopsy and discovered Stage I cancer with a 1cm lump, a second smaller lump, and lymph node involvement. Chemotherapy was initiated.*

Thermal Images Copyright The Thermogram CenterWhile this client's mammogram and ultrasound were normal, her thermal imaging indicated highest thermobiological risk, TH5, in the left breast. Her doctor subsequently ordered an MRI, which led to surgery and a breast cancer diagnosis.*

Thermal Imaging Helps Client Decide on Course of Action

After being diagnosed with breast cancer*, this 31 year old opted for non-surgical treatment. The top images suggest blood supply supporting the cancer shortly after diagnosis by biopsy.

The middle images suggest blood supply supporting the cancer less than 6 weeks later. Because the client suspected the tumor was growing and because of the obvious increase in its blood supply, she decided to follow the advise of her breast doctor and obtain a mastectomy.

This client and her doctor were considering biopsy of a suspicious mammographic finding in the location of the arrow at left. The TH rating for this left breast was TH 2 (low risk) while the right breast was TH 4+ (between high and highest risk). They decided not to conduct the biopsy and have shifted their focus to the right breast. Since there are no mammographic findings in the right breast, they have initiated intervention strategies and are monitoring this breast for change with the hope that early intervention may reverse her risk.

Other Breast Cancer Examples

These thermal images are of clients already diagnosed with breast cancer. The left images indicate the highest temperatures in black, while the right images indicate the highest temperatures in orange, yellow, and white.

The top images are of a client with inflammatory breast cancer in the upper left breast. The bottom images are of a client with a 2mm cancer in the lower left breast. Do you see the suggested extensive blood supply to these areas?

Breast Fibrocyst Example

Thermal Images Copyright The Thermogram CenterBreast Fibrocyst Example

This thermogram is of a 47 year old client already diagnosed with a simple fibrocyst in the upper left breast. The thermal finding at left (as indicated by the white arrow) is consistent with inflammation that can be associated with such a cyst. Note the absence of "hypervascularity" which typically accompanies active breast cancers.
