Marcelle started her thermal imaging practice in November 2011 under the expert guidance of Dr Robert Kane of California. In 2012 she qualified as a Certified Thermographic Technician ensuring professionalism and integrity in maintaining the highest standards. From starting in the small town of Howick 5 years ago, Thermoscan now operates in Pietermaritzburg, Westville, Ballito, Durban North, Empangeni, Piet Retief, Paulpietersburg, Harrismith, Ladysmith, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Centurion and Tzaneen and has successfully screened hundreds of clients. Marcelle has studied natural health for more than 25 years and is passionate about expanding and continuing safe and effective medical screening as well as educating with making the correct choices.
Thermography can often detect changes in breast tissue before a tumour forms, and reveals hormonal influences that can contribute to cancer development or recurrence.
The temperature variance detectable by thermography can provide valuable information for early intervention using non-invasive strategies.
Thermography is a non-invasive, non-contact method that measures heat emissions from the body to aid in making a diagnosis of a host of health care conditions. We are all born with a heat image likened to a thumb print, which should be symmetrical and should not change. However, most illnesses or diseases will present themselves with some form of inflammation.
Utilising a high speed thermal imaging camera, the heat from the body is processed and recorded into an image map via specialised software, which measures the temperature variation of the asymmetrical heat image to an accuracy of 0.1 deg C. This is then analysed by a certified thermographic physician who will create a report which can then be used by your medical practitioner for further evaluation.

It is important to note that there has been a 30% increase in breast cancer in women under 40, who have not undergone any form of screening yet. Thermography is recommended for all women from the age of 20. We like to refer to our breast screening as a No X-Ray “Mammogram”. Thermography is FDA approved as an adjunct to mammography.
