Thermography in a world of radiation
Thermography (Infrared Breast Imaging) is a radiation-free, painless, and safe technology that detects infrared temperature changes in the breast tissue and provides you with an accurate picture of the health of your breasts. Thermography is approved by the FDA, as an adjunct to mammograms and breast examinations. It is useful for all women, regardless of age, body type, breast characteristics, nursing mothers, and women with breast implants. Research shows that there are many natural, non-pharmaceutical, non-invasive, safe, and effective approaches that can significantly lower your risk of developing breast cancer.
Karin Grumstrup RN, NP, is a board certified Thermography Technician. Karin has been a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner for over 19 years and brings an inspiring and holistic approach to women’s health. Karin sees Infrared Imaging as a powerful tool in assisting women in making pro-active choices in breast cancer prevention.
Karin’s clinic in Northern California, Your Breast Health Center, is committed to serving women in preventing breast cancer. Using state of the art Digital Infrared Breast Imaging, preventative breast cancer education, and personal breast health plans, the center serves women in making changes that support a lifetime of breast health.
Can We Prevent Breast Cancer?
Women of all ages can identify potential risks for breast cancer and make life style changes long before those risks turn to cancer. When we identify potential risks for breast cancer we can support you in a personal breast health plan.
What is Safe Breast Cancer Screening?
As a detection tool, mammography has a very valued place in clinical practice; however Thermography is proving to be a safer and more effective tool in detecting unhealthy physiological changes in breast tissue long before a tumor can be detected with mammography.
What You Can Do?
You can first find out how healthy your breast tissue is through safe and accurate Infrared Breast Imaging. You can then make a simple and positive decision to make changes in your life that support a lifetime of healthy breasts.

This book discusses the rapid evolution of technical advances in infrared sensor technology, image processing, “smart” algorithms, databases, and system integration that is paving the way for new methods of use in medical infrared imaging. These breakthroughs permit easy-to-use, high-sensitivity imaging that can address key issues of diagnostic specificity and engender a new level of diagnostic standardization, thus enabling the even wider use of infrared imaging as a viable, non-invasive, lower-cost, safe and accessible first-line detection modality.
