Spatial Thermographic Imaging (STI) reveals subcutaneous anatomical details from a standard thermographic image. These visualizations disclose details that otherwise would remain hidden, and seeing those details brings clearer understanding. Seeing more means knowing more.
STI dramatically enhances the intrinsic value and credibility of the thermographic examination, bringing immeasurable benefits to practitioners and their patients. This tool is essential when the goal is to provide the best service to patients. Learn more by clicking Spatial Thermographic Imaging Basics.'
Spatial Thermographic Imaging© non-invasively reveals anatomical details of breast tumors years before they are detectable with current screening methods, potentially enhancing breast cancer survival, reducing metastasis, and improving mortality.
Spatial Thermographic Imaging© (STI) is a non-invasive imaging procedure allowing virtual visualization of the internal anatomical structure of the breast. STI detects the weak thermal signature accompanying even the youngest metabolic processes, and with reconstruction algorithms visualizes malignant breast cancer years before tumors are observable using invasive X-ray mammography. STI is safe, affordable, and produces MRI-level resolution images with inexpensive equipment currently used by thousands of practices.
Breast cancer survival has steadily improved but, mortality rate and the incidences of metastasized breast cancer have essentially remained unchanged for decades. Mammography, does not detect tumors early enough, and while breast thermography detects signs of cancer much earlier, the signs are ambiguous. If screening for earlier detection of breast cancer remains the best hope for reducing metastasis and improving mortality, a change is essential. STI answers the need by identifying tumors while in their infant stages.
STI combines the sensitivity of thermography with a proprietary software technique that provides anatomical visualization of blood vessels, cysts, and tumors, both benign and malignant. These visualizations overcome previous ambiguity and identify young, malignant that would likely remain hidden for years.
The power of STI is demonstrated in the following images of a breast hosting a three-tumor cluster (yellow arrow). Compared are mammography, traditional breast thermography, deep-tissue STI, and a close-up view of the tumors. The green arrow points to the smallest tumor, which is about 2mm in size.
STI was developed and tested over a four-year period, and continues to be tested on every reading by the TAS interpretation service. Testing consistently discloses early cancers in women whose mammogram and breast thermography results indicate healthy breasts.
