What is Thermography?

Thermography is a non-contact, non-invasive procedure which captures and records temperature variations in the skin. The skin is the body’s most intelligent organ and is “wired” with a communication network connecting all other organs and physiological processes in the body. The skin responds to physiological changes and a thermography device observes those changes. These changes are reported by medical professionals trained to recognize thermal findings and report them to the person.

Breast Thermography uses infrared images of the breast to analyze and rate to determine the risk of developing breast cancer. Thermography is non-invasive, safe and painless – no radiation or compression is used.

All Thermography sessions offered at Remissio are administered by the Thermography Clinic Niagara.

It is completely non-invasive, meaning that there is no radiation, no compression, no contact of any kind. Thermography simply creates an image of your breasts by measuring your heat.

No, it does not. Thermography, like mammography is a assessment tool. Thermography identifies abnormal physiological changes in your breasts that may be malignant. Mammography, is an x-ray, as such it identifies certain structures in the breast that can potentially be malignant. With both Mammography and Thermography, definitive diagnosis is done by other procedures such as a biopsy or lumpectomy. If the thermography shows an issue in the same area, the patient will have more information with which to make an informed decision.

No. It is recommended that Thermography be used along side other assessment tools such as Mammography and other structural examinations  to ensure the most comprehensive screening and the earliest possible detection.


No, Thermography can be used to assess other areas of the body as well. Available assessments are cranial-dental-thyroid, breast assessment, cranial-breast combo, upper body imaging, lower body imaging, full body imaging. Thermography uses the same method of screening for all types of assessments.


Not yet.  Public health insurance plans do not cover the cost of Thermography, however there are some private insurance companies that may cover the cost of this examination.
