All joking aside, I scanned my wife’s breasts (last year) and I couldn’t locate any obvious defects, but this is one type of IR scan I’m not familiar with. I know that the cancer masses will be hotter than other areas but I’m not sure how to pinpoint issues.
I used the Flir camera on my wife last year ,Sure enough it showed a hot spot where her ovaries where , she also had pain there, Went to the doctor she had a growth. I would not recommend it or diagnose medical problems but it was a eye opener BTW she is all fixed up and i will not let her to scan me . LOL lord only knows what she would see.
David, As you know I have taken on some stuff with TI, but around here, I think Mr. Decker would be that man to call.
Things can get hot, and things can get cold. You have the equipment, you need someone to tell you about what you see.
I have been to several vets and MD’s with my camera scans in hand. When they can’t find the problem, I bring out my scans. I always get a “what the hell is this?” response.
I had to put down a horse last week from a major tumor that was only detectable with my IR camera. I went through three vets, all the way to Lexington, Ky. If they can’t find it, I can only hope they can figure a way to evaluate IR!
Not Oncology related, but last fall I managed to cut my hand on a furnace front (My first HI injury in 5 years). It started to get infected so I shot it with my camera and took a print with me to the Docs. They were not very familiar with thermography but were very impressed by what it showed. They actually kept the image for the medical file.
Here’s the shot (there seems to be no end to the uses for these IR cameras)
A female Realtor that was on a job with me a few weeks ago said she participated in IR breast scan studies about 20 years ago at NIH. I have no idea how to interpret the data but she said they had to remain topless in a chilled room for sometime before the scan. I think she said the room was in the low 60’sF.
