Thermography Center of Montana

How do you know your breast density? Get a copy of your mammogram report—the radiology report. The radiologist determines your density rating on findings from the images like these. As you can see, the denser your breast tissue is, the less accurate the mammogram will be at finding breast cancers.
Frequently, the mammogram is followed up with an ultrasound for a better view. Interesting fact: “Studies have shown that ultrasound significantly increases detection of clinically important, small, largely invasive, node-negative cancers.”
And good news! Neither is thermography affected by the dense breast tissue. If “early matters,” adding functional imaging like thermography to your breast-health risk assessment may be a good idea!
Remember the value of thermography—it monitors changes. Stay current with your annual breast thermography. At Thermography Center of Montana, we’re looking forward to hearing from you. Now with offices in Bozeman, Billings, Helena, Great Falls, Missoula, and Kalispell. Make your appointment today!
