How Thermography Can Help Monitor Mastectomy Surgeries

How Thermography Can Help Monitor Mastectomy Surgeries

As if we didn’t already know that thermography is an incredible assessment for breast health, we would like to take matters one step further in explaining how incredible thermography is. Did you know you can use Thermography safely to monitor Mastectomy Surgeries and Breast Health? Below we have an example of a breast study done to monitor a mastectomy surgery.

In this study we see the right breast presents with hypothermic activity. Hypothermic patterns are indicative of congestion and fibrocystic activity that may be happening in the breast. Then of the left mastectomy site shows myofascial inflammation and lymphatic congestion, which is often observed post mastectomy.

So what’s the big deal? These findings are quite significant based on asymmetry and distribution and should be monitored closely for change. In this case in particular no complaints were reported; however, thermography can identify early signs of inflammation and physiological changes.

In the event that there is a problem, regular dry brushing and lymphatic drainage massage may help to reduce congestion and improve lymph circulation. If this is the case, nutritional changes such as following an anti-inflammatory diet is advised. Introducing supplements such as Indole-3-carbinol, Magnesium, Turmeric, Cleavers, Cat’s Claw and Fish Oil to your diet may help to reduce congestion, promote lymph drainage, and reduce inflammation. It’s important the implementation of any treatment protocol should be under the guidance of a qualified health care professional.

If you’re interested in getting a Breast, Health or Full body study to monitor your recent mastectomy or just your overall breast health, contact us today! We’d be happy to further educate you on the safe process of thermography and help you identify potential threats in your breasts or mastectomy sites.
