This protocol will evaluate a new non-invasive infrared imaging system as an adjunctive tool for breast cancer detection that has been approved by the FDA. The technology and device have been developed by Infrared Sciences Corp. and has undergone more than 3 years of testing prior. The subject device's utility will be investigated with regard to its sensitivity toward breast cancer, however it records temperature data and other physiological parameters of the breast, and compares them to a database of patients with known breast health.
