Medical thermal imaging (thermography) is a low impact method of screening for breast cancer with compression or irradiation. While thermography has a sensitivity of about 80% by itself, when used in conjunction with conventional mammography, thermography increases the sensitivity from about 80% to over 95%. Thus it can be use to both maximize the sensitivity of screening for breast cancer and as an alternative for people who can't or won't get mammograms. Thermography is also a useful tool to help understand pain syndromes and neurological problems. All studies are read by board certified physicians via secure connections for reliability and fast turnaround. Please see our website at AAthermography.com for more information.
Ann Arbor Thermography is a service of Dr. Malcolm Sickels MD,
board certified in family medicine and holistic medicine. The studies are performed by Barbara Vannest, certified clinical thermographer. Dr. Sickels and Ann Arbor Thermography brought this innovative screening method to Ann Arbor and Washtenaw county in 2007 as part of Dr. Sickels' constant quest to improve the health of his community.
