Aspen Thermography offers professional and compassionate breast thermography services to help detect potentially life-threatening diseases. Using cutting-edge technology backed by decades of research experience, our team strives to provide the most reliable and comprehensive imaging analysis.

How is Infrared Breast Thermography Different from Traditional Mammography?
Unlike mammography, infrared thermography is an entirely non-contact and pain-free procedure. There also is no radiation exposure. Mammography uses an X-ray to capture an image that is a shadow of dense structures in the breast. It has an 80% sensitivity, which means it correctly identifies malignant tumors 80% of the time in women older than 50. It has a lower sensitivity in women younger than 50.

Difficulties in reading mammograms can occur in women who are on hormone replacement, nursing or have fibrocystic, large, dense, or enhanced breasts. These breast differences do not cause complications in reading digital infrared scans. Thermography is designed to be an adjunctive screening and is best used in combination with other screening tools.

It has a 90% sensitivity in women of all ages. Since it detects physiological changes in tissue, a positive infrared image is the highest known risk factor for the existence of future development of breast cancer. It is important to note that neither mammography nor thermography diagnoses cancer. Only a biopsy can determine if a questionable area is malignant.


Infrared Thermography uses an FDA-approved medical-grade infrared camera to detect subtle variations of heat radiating from the body’s surface. Its use in cancer prevention and early detection is based on the principle that as a cancerous tumor develops, there is increased circulation and metabolic activity in the area that correlates to a rise in radiant heat, which the infrared camera can detect.

These metabolic changes can be identified well before a noticeable mass develops, even up to 8 years earlier. For example, in the case of Inflammatory Breast Cancer, there are no lumps to be detected by self-exam or Mammography.


  • Non-invasive (no touching, no compressing, no pulling)

  • Safe – no radiation exposure. (1 rad of radiation increases your cancer risk by 1%. With 10 years of annual mammogram screening, you have a cumulative 10% increased risk)

  • No contrast of any kind is administered

  • Earlier detection – as small as a pinhead

Prevention is Key

Breast cancer is a leading concern for all women, and it is even becoming more common among men. As a woman, you have a 1 in 8 chance of developing breast cancer at some point in your lifetime. Fortunately, nearly all breast cancers can be successfully treated if they are found early. The five-year survival rate for women whose breast cancer was found and treated in its early stages is nearly 100%. Detecting breast cancer early gives you a lifesaving head start on the road to treatment and optimal health.


Just as unique as a fingerprint, each patient has a particular infrared map of their breasts. Any variation of this infrared map on serial imaging (images taken over months to years) may indicate an early sign of abnormality. Stay proactive and in charge of your health by making infrared thermography a part of your annual routine.
