TORONTO, Nov. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Responding to a report issued by CBC news November 27, 2012, representatives from Thermography Clinic Inc. want Canadians to be accurately informed about breast thermography, its benefits and limitations.
Thermography, as a whole, should not be discredited simply because of the misinformation and low integrity of one company. Thermography Clinic Inc. and its affiliates have been consistently cautious and strict not to sell fear, and to stay true to fact. We do not embellish thermography, nor do we use any unsupported claims in our marketing.
Right to Proactive Health Care:
We believe that women deserve choice when it comes to their health. Thermography provides women and their health care practitioners with additional information. It is not intended to replace mammography. Studies have shown that Breast Thermography, combined with structural testing and self-breast examination, provides women with information they can use to make informed health decisions.
Over many years, we have helped thousands of women with breast health and prevention. Many people would not be alive today if we did not have this knowledge and technology. Unfortunately, many women will suffer immensely if the use of thermography is prohibited.
Breast thermography has been researched for over 30 years and over 800 peer -reviewed studies exist in the index-medicus. Please refer to: http://www.thermographyclinic.com/study-index for a list of thermography studies.
The American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved medical thermography as an adjunctive test in breast cancer screening in 1982. We agree with the FDA position that thermography is safe, and that is not a stand-alone test for breast cancer screening.
Accountability and Regulation:
The use of Thermography has internationally established protocols and procedures that, when adhered to, provide women with further information that may be useful to their health. We will be submitting an application for regulation with provincial authorities across Canada to ensure that thermography is available and held to the highest standards.
