Breast Thermography Crash Course ~ THE Answers You've been Searching for with Images

the breast doc

 

So you’ve seen thermography show up in your FB feed and on Twitter, people are talking about it like they know all about it, but you can’t help but ask yourself: What the heck is breast thermography?

Well, I’ll tell you. Welcome to the Breast Thermography Crash Course.

First, a warning. You know, getting the bad news out of the way before the real learning begins. Just because a clinic says it offers breast thermography doesn’t mean it offers qualified breast thermography. You may join a host of others in being shocked to learn that thermography – though a true, solid, and thorough means of evaluating your breasts for cancer – isn’t regulated. What that means is this: Anyone can open a clinic. And the scary thing is, there are a lot of “anyones” out there who are doing just that. They aren’t skilled, they aren’t educated – they just think they can get the equipment and offer the services. This has created a multitude of issues, from false claims, cheap cameras, untrained interpreters and techs to the scariest – missing breast cancer!

So let’s get back to business and show you what you need to know to ensure you’re getting the best thermography available – from people who really know what they’re doing.

Breast thermography is an incredible screening device as it has the possibility of detecting a concern, sometimes years before other imaging modalities. Here is where I teach you that:

  1. Not everyone is an expert

Know who’s giving you your basic breast thermography information. Please review 50 years of Dr. Hobbins's publications and presentations at the end of this blog. We are the consumer advocates for breast thermography and started the Women’s Academy of Breast Thermography (WABT), the largest resource for breast thermography information. The Academy was founded by a female doctor - for women. Thermography has been dominated by male doctors, and I am changing the game!

I am Wendy Sellens, DAOM, a Chinese medical doctor, one of the leading breast thermography researchers and interpreters, author of Breast Cancer Boot Camp – Dr. Hobbins’s Breast Thermography Revolution and protégé to William Hobbins, M.D., himself.

Dr. Hobbins was one of the original mammography researchers and renowned breast surgeons who successfully, for nearly 50 years, used alternative methods to screen and treat breast cancer. He was the leading thermography researcher in the U.S. and spearheaded the breast thermography interpretation model, or minimum standard requirements, from his mass studies in the early 1970s. He was one of the original founders and fellows of the first thermography academy in the U.S., the American Academy of Thermology (AAT), and single-handedly founded and funded in the early 1980s the International Academy of Clinical Thermography (IACT). He trained all the original doctors in these academies and then toured the globe 10 times training doctors in Asia, Europe, and South America.

This one doctor has done more for breast cancer treatments, breast health prevention and screening than any other doctor in the U.S. For more information on Dr. Hobbins and our groundbreaking thermographic research, read our book, Breast Cancer Boot Camp - Dr. Hobbins's Breast Thermography Revolution. It will help you understand how to dramatically reduce your risk of breast cancer. Or read the blog: Father of Early Detection 

My partner is Martin Bales, whom you may have seen on the popular documentary, Truth About Cancer. He is son to Maurice Bales, the inventor of the first digital infrared camera and, more importantly, the first camera to be FDA approved for breast thermography in 1982. Most cameras are FDA approved for skin temperature variation, which you will see is a big difference.

We are the pioneers in breast thermography interpretation and equipment.

Together we founded the WABT because the academies mentioned above and others are no longer meeting the minimum standard requirements. WABT has the strictest standards in the U.S. to ensure all patients receive the highest level of care. Dr. Hobbins and I also founded the non-profit The Pink Bow - Breast Thermography Research and Education. The Pink Bow is focused on early screening with thermography and breast cancer prevention with the estrogen-free® lifestyle. We believe we should “celebrate the women, not the cancer.”

  1. Breast thermography monitors the blood vessels

Cancers tend to form specific vascular patterns, called Major and Minor Signs, and thermography monitors for these specific “at-risk” or abnormal patterns in the breasts. Thermography monitors for atypical or abnormal vascualrity (stimulation of the existing blood vessels), and for neoangiogenesis (new blood vessel growth), which may cause a cancer to become invasive. Diseases are usually unilateral, or located only on one side.

   3. Thermography interpretation is done in reverse gray or black hot

Thermography monitors blood vessels, which are only visible in the reverse gray images. Color is ONLY used as a secondary interpretation.

Thermography can only measure the heat emitted from the skin, it cannot see inside or deep into the tissue, muscles, organs or bones. Thermography clinics doing full body thermography are ripping you off and trying to sell supplements for inflammation, digestive issues, or cleanses. Thermography is a superficial screening – it cannot diagnose digestive, coronary, uterus,  or gallbladder disorders, or adrenal or chronic fatigue or any organ – kidney  heart, lung, liver, spleen – issues.

 Thermography is excellent at pain diagnosis as muscles have referral patterns on the skin that thermography can monitor.

   4. Breast thermography is NOT diagnostic and does NOT replace a mammogram

Breast thermography was FDA approved as an adjunct to mammography in 1982.

Thermography can only measure the skin temperature, it is NOT diagnostic and does NOT replace a mammogram. Thermography is not “better” than mammography, it is different; comparing thermography to mammography  is like comparing apples to oranges.

Thermography is a screening that monitors the blood vessels which could possibly be stimulating a disease. Breast thermography is a superficial screening, one that has the incredible ability to detect small changes in the breasts quickly and to alert a patient to a potential issue before it may become a disease. The minute vascular structures, which may possibly be stimulating a disease or tumor, may emit more heat than normal tissue, possibly making them detectable with a high resolution, highly-sensitive infrared camera. Thermography does not detect breast cancer, it screens for it by monitoring the blood vessels that may possibly be feeding it.

Mammography uses X-rays to differentiate normal tissue from physical tumors and other breast abnormalities based on their densities. Mammography can see inside or deeper in the breasts, which makes it diagnostic. However, it cannot usually detect small changes and is not early detection. In many cases it detects tumors that are already of significant size (>1cm in most cases). If you have a positive mammogram, you probably have a disease.

All breast imaging complements each other when needed. This is the order breast cancer screening should proceed. If you get an abnormal or inconclusive screening, start moving up the scale.

Thermography

Ultrasound

Mammogram

MRI with gadolinium contrast

Biopsy

Why are these in this particular order? It’s easy: Breast thermography signals, ultrasound confirms, mammography locates, and biopsy establishes diagnosis.

   5. Thermography is safe, non-radiation, ideal for pregnant women

    The infrared camera used in thermography does not emit radiation and is biologically safe. Since no radiation is involved with this screening procedure pregnant women or nursing mothers may use this imaging without any harm to fetus or infant.

     

     

    6. Fibroids, scars and implants are cold and cannot been seen in a thermogram.

     

       7. Breast thermography is ideal for dense breasts and implants

    While women are still menstruating their breasts are dense due to estrogen stimulation – this is why mammography is only 48 percent accurate for women age 40–50. After menopause the breasts are no longer stimulated from estrogen and will mature or soften, and this is when a mammogram is more accurate. From age 50–60 a mammogram is 68 percent accurate, and for those aged 60+ it is 88 percent accurate.

    When thermography is used, there is no contact between the machine and you – which makes it ideal for women with implants. Also, implants are cold and will not interfere with monitoring of the blood vessels.

    1. Breast thermography can begin in the early 20s

    The breasts don’t finish developing until the age of 22, which makes that a wonderful time to begin breast health screening to establish a baseline, especially since cancers at a younger age or more aggressive. (Yes, it’s possible to get breast cancer in your 20s.) We recommend getting a thermogram in your early 20s, and then if deemed “normal,” following up every three years. From the ages of 30 to 40, thermograms should be done every two years, and then annually after the age of 40, in conjunction with an ultrasound, which is another biologically safe test.

     

    The risk of breast cancer increases to 1 in 219 women after the age of 40. These two imaging modalities complement each other well and together reduce oversight or risk, especially with high-risk women. If a qualified breast thermography clinic is not available at this time in your area, I strongly recommend an ultrasound and to pass on the amateur thermogram.

     

    1. Thermography cannot detect if a tumor is malignant or benign

    All diseases, including begin or malignant tumors and breast infections (mastitis), look the same in a thermogram because some benign masses and/or infections may have vascular stimulation. This is why thermography is only a screening; it cannot tell the difference, it can only monitor the vascular structures.

    What thermograpy can do is alert you to a problem so you can get further testing done, if necessary.

        10. Thermography is NOT covered by most insurance companies

    Thanks to insurance fraud committed by a few thermography clinics in the 1980s and 1990s, insurance companies dropped thermography as a covered procedure in 1994. Medicare does not cover thermography, either. There are supplemental insurance companies, like Aflac or private insurance, that will cover a portion of the cost. I’ve had a few breast cancer survivors report back to me that their insurance company will cover the cost due to medical history. It never hurts to try. You can use your flex spending account and health savings account to pay the costs, as well – but each flex and HSA program is different, too, so be sure to check with your program administrator.

        11. A physician's referral is NOT needed for breast thermography

        12. Did you know thermography is an incredible tool at monitoring your hormones - estrogen and progesterone?

    Normal vascularity can be seen during pregnancy and nursing. Hormonally balanced women will have NO vascularity as the blood vessels are NOT being stimulated. Unilateral patterns are abnormal and usually evidence of a disease or possibly, a benign tumor.

    Bilateral hypervascular thermograms, in women who are not pregnant, are usually atypical and are usually evidence of an endocrine imbalance due to excess stimulation. As we show in our book, from 50 years of thermographic research, chronic stimulation, from all forms of estrogen, may influence neoangiogenesis.

    Eighty percent of breast cancers are influenced or “fed” by estrogen. Estrogen doesn't cause breast cancer, it stimulates it. Our thermographic research is demonstrating that all phytoestrogens, plant estrogens, stimulate the estrogen receptors because they are bio-identical. Bio-identical does not mean "safe'' or "natural," it means similar chemical structure. Birth control pills and hormone replacement therapy are bio-identical. Dr. Hobbins was one of the first doctors in the 1980s to warn women about the risk of breast cancer due to soy, a phytoestrogen, from abnormal thermograms.

     If a plant estrogen can occupy a receptor it is stimulating that receptor, NOT blocking it from other bio-identical estrogens. In fact, scientists have discovered that synthetic estrogens, which are also bio-identical, can produce more binding sites! (Please refer to chapter 6 of our book for more information). If a plant estrogen cannot occupy a receptor then it is NOT affecting that receptor. This is how many studies are manipulated. For example, a flax study was conducted on rat colons and claimed flax was beneficial. But herein lies the problem: There are no receptors for estrogen in the colon. (Please refer to chapter 5 of our book for more information).

    Thermograms can monitor for an endocrine imbalance. Breast thermography research is demonstrating that most women are progesterone deficient, not estrogen deficient. Eighty  percent of breast cancers are fed from estrogen, so if women were actually estrogen deficient then breast cancer would be significantly lower and not increasing.

    Progesterone deficiency in thermography is graded on a scale:

    Mild progesterone deficiency grade 1 (relative) – Bilateral symmetrical hypervascular pattern on top halves of breasts.

    Moderate progesterone deficiency grade 2 (relative) – Bilateral symmetrical hypervascular pattern top half of breast to nipples.

    Sever progesterone deficiency grade 3 (relative) – Bilateral symmetrical hypervascular pattern below nipples.

    If there is an endocrine imbalance – and not a disease – the use  of bio-identical progesterone creams (sublingual and pills are ineffective) usually decreases bilateral vascualrity and breasts return to a non-vascular state.

    For more information read this blog: The Complete Guide to Progesterone ~ All the Do's and Don'ts.

    Symptoms of excess estrogen should also decrease. Signs and symptoms of excess estrogen are usually PMS, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, breast pain, cramps, headaches, fibrocystic breast, and experiencing symptoms of menopause including hot flashes and night sweats. Severe risks of excess estrogen are infertility, thyroid issues, stoke, seizures, miscarriage, and breast and uterine cancer.

    Thermography clinicians who are recommending estrogen supplementation do not understand the basic fundamentals of thermography. Estrogen supplementation includes HRTs, bio-identical estrogen, flax, soy, red clover, black cohosh, primrose, estradiol, estriol, patches, pellets, and more. See our book for a more complete list of these kinds of supplements.

    Below are the minimum standard requirements for a breast thermogram. If your clinic is not meeting these guidelines do not get a thermogram!

       13. Thermographic score, TH, of each breast and is determined by asymmetries in the breasts from temperature differences (delta T)

    TH-1 Non-Vascular - Normal
    TH-2 Vascular Uniform (Potential risk for post-menopausal women)
    TH-3 Equivocal
    TH-4 Abnormal
    TH-5 Severely Abnormal

    Many thermography academies are trying to say a TH score isn’t relevant since thermography isn’t diagnostic. Then why would you be there? How the heck would you assess the breasts? Good or bad? That is unacceptable. You can’t say abnormal or normal because without a baseline, how do you know what “normal” is? What were the factors involved to determine the health of a breast? It would involve assigning a type of score. Medical imaging requires an accepted scoring system to determine health. Mammograms use the accepted BRAID system which is 1-6. A TH score does not make thermography diagnostic, it’s a tool to analyze the breast and determine if that breast is abnormal or normal, which would require further study if needed.

       14. Interpretation is required in black hot or reverse gray images with color being secondary

    Blood vessels are only visible in reverse gray; cancers tend to form certain patterns referred to as Major and Minor signs, therefore requiring it to be mandatory.

       15. Major and Minor Signs

    Asymmetries are also determined by Major and Minor Signs or a hyperthermia; any hyperthermia noted in breast must have accompanying Major or Minor sign if applicable.15. Delta T measurements must be recorded

       16. Delta T measurements must be recorded

    1.0º C or higher at nipple
    1.0º C or higher with finding
    1.5º C or higher at periareolar
    1.5º C or higher global heat
    2.0º C or higher in isolated area (Major or Minor sign)
    2.5º C or higher with finding in unilateral breast – mastectomy
    3.0 º C or higher in unilateral breast – mastectomy

    Nipplar delta T must be recorded if outside normal limits; 83 percent of all cancers present with a "hot" nipple.

       17. Proper room and patient preparation

    Room temperature kept at or below 68 - 72 degrees.

    A cold stress challenge or also called a sympathetic stress test, application of ice or ice pack is strongly recommended, applied to forehead or back. Cold stress challenge is not required for a first-time thermogram, but it is always required for a repeat thermographic score of TH-3, TH-4, and TH-5.

    The patient must be undressed from waist up, no robe and/or gown, with hands above head at all times.

    Some companies are trying to make a technician obsolete. The technician is trained to ensure that the patient and the room are properly prepared and that the images are captured correctly. For one example, many patients touch themselves while being imaged and require a second cold stress challenge. Would you perform your own mammogram or ultrasound? No! Why would an amateur thermologist want you to perform your own thermography? You are paying for a professional to assist you.


       18. An infrared camera with an optical line resolution of 480 or higher

    One of the reasons breast cancer is being missed in breast thermography reports is cheap cameras. Most thermography clinics are using cameras with an optical line of 120. The higher the optical line resolution the more detailed the breast image and therefore the greater possibility of earlier detection.

    All thermography clinics are trained to tell you that their camera is the highest resolution. My partner’s father invented the first digital infrared camera in 1979 and it was the first camera FDA-approved for breast thermography in 1982 (most cameras are FDA-approved for skin temperature variation – big difference). His camera dominated the marketplace for 30 years and most infrared camera companies consult with him as he is the expert in infrared technology.

     

    When researching local breast thermography clinics ask for the infrared camera’s make and model to search and confirm the optical line. If they don’t give you an answer, don’t give them your business.

       19. Interpretation

    The academies mentioned above and others only require interpreters to take a one-week course and review of 100 breast thermography reports. Radiologists study for years, why would you trust your breasts with anything less?

    The WABT requires up to two years of review or 750 reports plus an additional 250 breast cancer reports or unilateral interpretation. This is what my partner and I achieved in order to become qualified breast thermography interpreters. 

    Below are reports from interpreters trained by camera companies or other thermography academies. The minimum standard requirements are not being met in these reports.

     

     

    Let’s reduce your stress and do a quick review…

    Avoid these clinics

    *Camera optical line less than 480. Many clinics are now stating false optical line, ask for make and model to research on line for true measurements.

    *No reverse gray images.

    *Reverse gray images with NO specific comments, mention of Major or Minor patterns or delta T measurements. Usually these clinics have a gradient scale at bottom of page combined with a TH score.

    *No TH score (thermographic score) included for each breast.

    *A point system score or full rating system. The TH score will have an actual score associated with it from 1-200 (Right Breast= 50 is TH 2). Thermographic studies have shown a 28 percent error rate with a scoring system.

    *Interpretation done by a computer/software and may include a point scoring system. This was attempted in the 1970s and the million-dollar study found interpretation by computer/software had a 28 percent error rate. A radiologist interprets your mammogram, why would you accept less with thermography?  

    *No delta T measurements. Delta T is the temperature difference between nipples, periareola, global heat (entire breast) and specific vascular patterns. Prepare to be shocked! Most clinics and thermography academies aren’t following thermographic studies and are using incorrect delta T measurements which would result in too many false positives causing panic.

    *Most thermography interpreters only take a weekend course followed by 100 reports for review. Your interpreter took a weekend course from an academy teaching thermography incorrectly! Most of these doctors are men and most are chiropractors who have no experience with the breasts. Radiologists spend years studying. Why do you trust your breasts to less with thermography? Look for an interpreter who studied under a qualified thermologist for two years.

    *Clinics using incorrect terms: These are not correct medical terms used by highly trained thermologists.

              "inflammation” 

    Mastitis is the only true inflammation of the breast and is very, very rare in the breast thermography. Because of the pain with this infection most women are already being treated by their doctor.

              “tissue”

                Breast thermography can’t monitor deep into the breast tissue

              “congestion”

              “stagnation”

              “toxic build-up"

    Breast thermography monitors for vascularity and neoangiogenesis which are the actual blood vessels, not what is inside of the blood vessels, circulation or the tissue, which is too deep.

    *Require a mandatory 3 month follow up.

    *No sympathetic or cold stress challenge.

    *Placing hands in cold water.

    *Using a robe for cool down.

    *Selling supplements, especially, natural estrogen blockers, bio-identical estrogen, plant estrogens including flax, soy, black cohosh, red clover, breast health supplements, cleanses, etc.

    *Clinics stating thermography is diagnostic or replaces mammography.

    *Clinics stating thermography can determine if lumps are benign or malignant.

    Congratulations! You have successfully completed THE breast thermography crash course. Now share this vital information with others and save a life.
