Are Mammograms Safe and Effective?

Are Mammograms Safe and Effective – The Nordic Cochrane Group has reported that mammograms may harm ten times more women than they help. They stated that if 2,000 women had a mammogram annually for ten years, the number of lives saved would be one! 

Many articles from prestigious medical journals like the New England Journal of Medicine and The British Medical Journal pointed out mammography’s dangers and consequences. 

It seems counter-intuitive to compress a female’s tender breast tissue between two metal plates with approximately 40 pounds of weight and then to radiate the now traumatized breast tissue knowing that radiation causes cancer. 

Misdiagnosis and Overdiagnosis

Due to misdiagnosis and overdiagnosis by mammography, perfectly healthy women are subjected to deadly cancer treatments, including radiation, chemotherapy, and surgery. These treatments leave women sick, maimed, and scarred.  

Thermography’s Benefits

Thermographic Diagnostic Imaging (TDI) believes in honoring the divine feminine with thermography’s gentle but effective approach for breast health screening. 

Thermography utilizes state-of-the-art, FDA-cleared technology to provide an image of the body’s physiologic responses. Thermography is a safe, non-radiologic, non-invasive, painless test with no compression, radiation, or injections and no known adverse effects. 

This study is safe for women of all ages and allows them to maintain their dignity while being proactive in their health and wellness concerns.

Thermography detects the physiologic changes in the breast tissue that correlates with cancerous or pre-cancerous states. Since thermal imaging detects changes at the cellular level, studies suggest that this test can see abnormal activity eight to ten years before any other test. 

Early Detection

Early detection allows for modifications in diet and lifestyle, such as eliminating underwire bras, avoiding conventional antiperspirants, eating whole organic foods, cutting out sugar, and reducing or managing stress in healthy ways. 

The American Cancer Society, among many others, has noted the significant increase in false positive mammograms leading to 800,000 unnecessary biopsies a year in this country alone. Utilizing thermography to measure breast physiology, we can look at “hot spots” in potential areas of concern, the absence of which reduces suspicion and the need for invasive intervention.

Thyroid, Dental, and Sinus

Thermography can also look at the thyroid, dental, and sinus regions. 

Research has shown that dental infections are responsible for various ailments such as heart disease, thyroid dysfunction, and breast cancer. 

We have been very successful in identifying dental infections, which has enabled individuals to obtain intervention and vastly improve their overall health. 

Individuals with thyroid symptomatology frequently lack corroborative blood testing. Anatomic testing, such as ultrasound, is valuable for detecting nodules but offers little information as to the function of the gland. Thermal imaging provides a physiologic perspective in the evaluation of thyroid dysfunction. 

The Hippocratic Oath says, “I will apply all measures required for the benefit of the sick to avoid the twin traps of over-treatment and therapeutic nihilism.” The earliest possible indication of abnormalities allows for the earliest possible intervention. 

About Thermographic Diagnostic Imaging

Thermographic Diagnostic Imaging (TDI) was established in 1982 by Philip Getson, DO, a Board Certified Thermologist, to provide superior quality infrared imaging of the breast, neuromuscular system, thyroid, dental, and sinus regions. 

Dr. Getson interprets all of the images for TDI. Liesha Getson is a Board Certified Thermography Technician.

Thermographic Diagnostic Imaging, 100 Brick Rd., Marlton, NJ 08053, 856-596-5834, TDI testing sites are located throughout NJ and PA, including Spring Lake Heights, Brick, Colts Neck, Fair Haven, and Point Pleasant, NJ.
