Alexander Mostovoy is a clinician, writer, researcher, and public speaker, and is recognized as a leading authority on breast health and cancer prevention. He has lectured extensively across Canada, the United States, South America, and Europe, and has educated and trained physicians in breast cancer prevention and the use of medical thermography. He is the best selling author of the book Breast Cancer Is A Preventable Disease and a co-creator of the Breast Cancer Prevention Global Virtual Conference. He is currently in the post-production stage of a documentary on Breast Cancer called Daisies Do Not Grow In Cement.
While the FDA has approved breast thermography since 1982, the greatest developments in this field have emerged in just the last few years with the advent of digital photography and high-resolution digital imaging. What is extraordinary about these intricate images is that they are able to display patterns of heat and vascularity within the tissue itself. Patterns of heat and vascularity can reveal the earliest indications of disease while they are still in the formative stages. Thermography can also detect the presence of heat from an infectious process or from a pre-existing anatomical abnormality (i.e. lump) in the breast. Thermography is also the best way to detect soft tissue trauma or damage. It is a non-invasive, radiation-free, safe and painless process.Thermal imaging has been an available medical test for more than 50 years now. Thermography is a totally safe, does not expose a patient to any form of radiation, it’s non-invasive, painless test with absolutely no adverse effects and with no contraindications. It can be used at any age and provides a diagnostic tool far superior to others in early the stages of some diseases.
Thermography is an imaging procedure where infrared images of the breast or cranium, dental, thyroid, or total body scans are analyzed and rated to determine the risk of developing cancer. Thermography is non-invasive, safe and painless – no radiation or compression is used. This technology is based on the premise that before the growth of abnormal cells is possible, a constant blood supply must be circulated to the growth area.
Chemical and blood vessel activity in both pre-cancerous tissue and the surrounding area of a problematic area is almost always hotter than the normal breast. Since pre-cancerous and cancerous masses are highly metabolic tissues, they need an abundant supply of nutrients to maintain their growth and this can increase the surface temperatures of the breast. Breast Thermography measures the heat generated by the microcirculation of blood in the breast during this process.
Thermography offers a non-invasive way to measure areas of inflammation in the dental, cranial and thyroid regions. Chronic sources of inflammation can compromise the immune system and lead to chronic illness, heart disease and cancer. Multiple studies have linked both dental pathology and thyroid dysfunction to breast cancer. With Thermographic imaging, we can identify areas of suspected inflammation and infection. Once an area of concern is identified, further investigation and treatment is recommended.
