Abstract

A new medical device called Thermascan has been developed based on heat-sensitive microencapsulated liquid crystals. This thermographic device assists in early detection of breast abnormalities that are characterized by minor changes in tissue temperature and displayed by the color changes in the device. This liquid crystal device is used to screen patients who fall into the average to high risk category: The value of this diagnostic device is that it will detect minute temperature changes that occur in the breast from very small heat-producing cancers.
