Her passion for health was started as a teen with her grandmother’s breast cancer diagnosis. She is so excited to offer the Erie area a totally noninvasive imaging option along with BRAS breast health information.
Concerned about breast health, breast cancer or breast lumps? Learn more and be proactive by educating yourself on breast health and using a breast screening called thermography. Thermography is a no touch, no radiation, early breast screening that can be done in as little as 15 minutes!
We serve Erie, PA and the surrounding areas.
Radiation from a mammogram is 1000 times greater than that from a chest x-ray. It accumulates over time, with ten x-rays increasing your breast cancer risk by 10%. Mechanical compression of your breast – as well as a biopsy – can dislocate and spread existing malignant cells. A breast cancer growth has grown for 7-8 years and reached 4-10 billion cells before a mammogram can detect it. This is not early detection!

Results are reported quickly by certified doctors and include all color images taken during your test. The first session provides the baseline of your “thermal signature.” A session 3 months later checks to see if the patterns remain unchanged, with yearly thermograms suggested thereafter. Early detection provides time for preventive measures far in advance of what is seen with traditional mammograms.
