- Question from Nigar: What are your thoughts on thermography as an early detection tool?
- Answers - Beth Baughman DuPree, M.D., F.A.C.S. I do not recommend thermography as a screening tool. [This is a scan that measures heat produced by the breast tissue.] It has not been shown to be as effective as digital mammography for detection of breast cancer.
