Thermograms receive ratings TH1 (no detection) through TH5 (cancer detected).

Women may have personal variances of circulation that show up as “warm spots”, which lack specific criteria of “hot spots” that are definitively associated with breast cancer.

Ratings of TH3 are (fence sitters) requiring repeat thermal imaging between 3-6 months to reveal whether the initial areas of thermal concern will resolve, stabilize, or worsen.

Depending on the thermography rating and clinical findings, a referral may be made to a Specialist for further assessment.

Physicians trained in holistic medicine may recommend nutritional, environmental, or lifestyle changes to address early thermal abnormalities of the breast.
