Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) September 23, 2013
Carolina Medical Thermography, specializing in preventative health screenings using infrared imaging, offers a new breast screening option that gives women a clearer picture of their breast health. While not a replacement for a mammogram, thermography is a non-invasive, simple, no-touch, no radiation screening using a sensitive digital infrared-sensing camera that develops a color image on a computer of the body’s thermal patterns. Certain kinds of diseases, like tumors, increase blood flow that causes an increase in temperature that can be seen on a thermographic scan.
The thermography scan is an especially good mammogram alternative for women with dense breast tissue, implants or who are nursing or pregnant and a mammogram is not a good option.
Charlotte-based Carolina Medical Thermography is a certified iScan Medical Imaging Center and the only thermography center in the region. All scans are interpreted by board-certified physicians and forwarded to a patient’s personal physician.
“October is breast cancer awareness month, but breast health should be top of mind for women all year long,” said Jennifer Colwell, thermographer with Carolina Medical Thermography. “Thermography is the only screening that can demonstrate whether estrogen dominance, a potential risk factor for the development of breast cancer, fibrocystic breasts, uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts, is affecting the breasts. This scan offers patients a real time story of what’s happening in the body.”
During the month of October, Carolina Medical Thermography is offering $50 off a single area scan and $100 off a full body scan. Located in the SouthPark area at 4201 Congress Street, Suite 440, Charlotte, NC 28029. For more information, call (704) 360-8060 or visit CMTScans.com.
