Thermal Breast Imaging Report
Patient: XXX Age: 31 Date of Report: XXX
Imaging Center: MIRI-Israel Date of Exam: XXX
Dear Ms. XXX,
Thank you for the opportunity to review your images from Miri-Israel. The results of your examination follow below.
Relevant History: Routine follow-up. Cysts were noticed at the lower quadrant bilaterally after manual palpation examination by treating doctor. The last physical breast examination was February 2007. No breast imaging was performed. Five year history of birth control pill use.
Comments: Left breast findings suggest a medium level of risk.
Impression: Right TH 2+ Left TH 3
Hormonal Grade 3
Thermal images of the breasts are graded as follows:
A (+) or (-) after the TH value indicates a rating between TH grades.
Follow up: I recommend that you see your doctor to evaluate your breasts. I suggest that you return for follow up thermal imaging in 6 months to attempt to detect any changes to your level of risk.
Findings: The images included the surface aspects of both breasts, axillae, and the superior chest wall.
- Moderately symmetrical vascular markings are present in the upper and inner breast surfaces. The markings of the left are warmer than the right. A vascular marking is also present at the right periareolar region at 10 o’clock.
- A computerized temperature analysis was performed to measure the temperature difference between breasts in specific regions of interest which are associated with increased risk:
Region of Interest
(Warmer side Listed)
Temp. DifferenceBetween Breasts
2.29 Deg C
0.00 – 2.00 Deg C
1.27 Deg C
0.00 – 1.00 Deg C
1.22 Deg C
0.00 – 1.50 Deg C
Procedure: We imaged you using a high-resolution computerized thermal imaging camera in a controlled environment. When reading these images, we look for certain temperature findings in the breasts which may suggest elevated risk for disease. These findings consist of unusual patterns of blood vessel warming and differences in temperature which exceed normal. Thermal imaging provides information about current and future risk only and does not diagnose breast conditions. Thermal imaging findings should be correlated with diagnostic examinations before a final diagnosis or treatment decision is made. It does not replace any other breast examination.
