It was Leslie and Dale’s father, a holistic wellness advocate, who introduced them to thermography. Percolating with enthusiasm and urgency, he told them and their other sister that he was “putting information in the mail” (which he often did) about this “new way” he had found for “his girls” to monitor their breast health. This caused Leslie and Dale to do their own research and subsequently, get yearly thermogram screenings.
It was lifesaving. They wondered why more people didn’t know about it. Too important to keep to themselves, they shared their knowledge with family and friends. Their other sister decided to try it too, and subsequently introduced Leslie and Dale to her thermographer, at which point, they recognized an opportunity to bring this widely needed service to the general public.

Thermography Provides Early Detection
Thermography is a totally non-invasive, non-radiation, painless digital infrared thermal imaging procedure for detecting and monitoring a number of diseases and physical injuries by showing the thermal abnormalities in the body.
Simply, it is a non-body contact, FDA registered procedure that uses a highly sensitive camera and computer to take pictures of the heat patterns and blood flow in the body. It creates a digital map of a patient’s unique thermal signature. Over time, it can detect the slightest changes in that digital map, which may indicate the onset of disease if left unattended.
It neither diagnoses nor is it meant to be used as a standalone device. It does not replace any diagnostic procedure. Rather, it is meant to be used in conjunction with other procedures and devices to provide additional data, aiding practitioners in the creation of a well-informed diagnosis and treatment plan.
Breast thermography offers the chance for early detection of breast disease. Earlier detection = early intervention by your healthcare practitioner and better treatment options. As another tool in a woman’s annual health screening, it is safe and effective for all women, regardless of age. It is particularly advantageous for younger women, who can be screened very early. For those women with denser breast tissue, larger breasts, implants, and who have undergone mastectomies or breast reductions, it also provides an easy, painless way to receive valuable information about one’s breast health. The first visit begins to establish a baseline. Any apparent changes to that image over time are captured in a follow-up visit, and are then interpreted by medical doctors (thermologists) who are specially trained to read thermograms.
