Mammogram or Thermogram?

Suzanne Pyle, MS, CCT, founder of X to Rays Thermal Imaging (, is frequently asked whether a mammogram or a thermogram is a better test. It’s the wrong question to ask because it’s like comparing apples to oranges as the two technologies are totally different, Pyle explains. Mammograms show structure and use radiation and compression. Thermograms are safe and measure temperature changes in the skin associated with underlying pathology. Though a mammogram can detect cancer as small as a few millimeters, thermograms can detect cancer while it is still at a cellular level – before it becomes visible on a mammogram.”

“Thermography has other unique abilities as well. It can indicate estrogen dominance, an imbalance in estrogen levels associated with higher breast cancer risk. It can detect lymph congestion, also a precursor to disease. The effects of diet can also be clearly seen. Women on a typical Western diet who switch to a healthier plant-based diet show remarkable improvement in their thermal patterns,” states Tom Hudson, MD, one of the doctors who reads X to Rays’ thermograms.

“In short, thermography is a way to monitor breast health, not just a way to detect disease. Mammography can show you if you have a cancer or not, but other than that it has little purpose. Thermography offers a woman the chance to become aware of worrisome physiological changes before there is a diagnosable cancer,” Hudson concludes.
