Studies have shown that mammography, the tool most commonly used for breast cancer screening, is not equally effective for all women. To ensure that breast cancer is detected as early as possible, physicians are now recommending additional (adjunctive) testing and screening for women of all ages. Now, in many cases breast cancer screening is tailored to the individual.
NoTouch BreastScan™ is an FDA cleared medical technology that offers safe and comfortable breast screening as an adjunctive exam for breast cancer detection. As the name suggests, NoTouch BreastScan™ does not require any physical contact and involves no radiation.
NoTouch BreastScan is a physiological exam. Using thermography to 'visualize' breasts differently than mammograms, it looks for the body's vascular response, metabolic activity, and thermal symmetry between breasts; unlike mammography, which looks for physical features like tumors and calcification.

37 lives are lost each day due to the lack of both effective education and screening for breast cancer . 33% of all breast cancer related deaths around the world are primarily related to late stage detection .
NoTouch BreastScan is a safe and comfortable option that complements the routine breast cancer screening regimen for women of all ages, ethnicities, risk-factors, and demographics.
