Clinical applications of internal heat source analysis for breast cancer identification

F. Han, Liang, C. W., Shi, G. L., Wang, L., and Li, K. Y., Clinical applications of internal heat source analysis for breast cancer identification, vol. 14, pp. 1450-1460, 2015.

Nondestructive preoperative breast imaging techniques are widely used for breast cancer testing and diagnosis. This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of quantitative diagnosis via the thermal analysis of abnormal metabolism. Nine hundred forty-eight women who underwent breast biopsy from 2009 to 2013 were investigated. Thermal analysis was used to calculate the internal heat source (i.e., tumor) thermal power for each participant.
