THERMOLOGY: ANALYTIC FEATURES

Thermology Signs are:

  • Asymmetric and moderately hyperthermic vascular or focal patterns;
  • Asymmetric and moderate complexity of a vascular pattern;
  • Localized heat along a physical distortion of less than a quadrant of a breast (edge sign);
  • Lack of an adaptive response of a distinct thermal pattern to the autonomic challenge procedure.

Thermology Criteria are:

  • Asymmetric and significantly hyperthermic vascular or focal patterns;
  • Asymmetric and significant complexity of a vascular pattern; 
  • Localized heat along a physical distortion of more than a quadrant of a breast (edge sign);
  • A paradoxical response of a distinct thermal pattern to the autonomic challenge procedure.
