How does thermography compare to mammography?
A. Understand that these are two very different tests. Thermography is a physiological test and mammography is an anatomical test. For many years mammography has been the state of the art screening test for breast cancer. That said, there is much debate over its usefulness in women under the age of 50. Mammograms require radiating the breast, and cumulative x-rays are an additional breast cancer risk factor due to the genetic damage created by x-rays.
