Liquid crystal thermography of the breast
In a retrospective study 19461 patients were examined. 2002 patients were clarified by biopsy and histological examination; 500 patients underwent aspiration cytology. The accuracy rate of thermography is 67.8% for malignant and 70.6% for benign lesions. False negative findings were given in 13.9% and false suspicious in 6.8%. False suspicious findings were mostly seen in inflammation, cysts and/or proliferation. The criteria of malignancy by “Tricoire” were examined. It can be shown, that their predictive value is very good. This especially if the “disturbance of thermoregulation” is examined carefully.
