FDA Safety Announcement

A thermography should not be used in place of a Mammogram.
There is no valid scientific data to demonstrate that thermography devices, when used on their own or with another diagnostic test, are an effective screening tool for any medical condition including the early detection of breast cancer or other diseases and health conditions (FDA, 2019). Please follow the link below to read the entire announcement from the FDA. It is important to us that we share this information with our patients on the standard of care for breast cancer screening.
