A problem and a solution

  • Methods Used to Screen and Monitor for Cancer

A Problem and a Solution

  • A Device That Will:

  • Current Methods

  • Measure Skin-Surface Temperature

  • Expensive

  • Report Topographic Location

  • Uncomfortable

  • Be Inexpensive

  • Inconvenient

  • Software That Will:

  • Rely on Presence of Tumor not Growth of Tumor

  • Map and Record Spatial Temperature Fluctuations

  • Recognize Patterns of Carcinoma Development


Detecting cancer current methods

  • Common

Detecting Cancer: Current Methods

  • Mammography

  • Self Exam

  • Ultrasound

  • Less Common

  • MRI

  • PET/CT

  • Thermography

From top left, clockwise: Mammogram (Harvey), Breast Self Exam, Ultrasound of the breast (Tiefenbacher), MRI of the breast with T1 contrast and fat reduction (Harvery), Combined PET and CT (Lavayssiere), Breast Thermogram (http://www.aathermography.com)


Thermography

  • CMOS Focal Plane Array Cameras

Thermography

  • ~10 μm IR radiation at 36º C

  • FDA Approved for Screening Alongside Mammograms

  • Particularly good at screening for

    • Breast Cancer

    • Pain

    • Neurological Disorders
