Clinical sites conducting ThermoBreast clinical study
Clinical study is a type of research that involves volunteers (participants of the study) and aims to add knowledge to a medical field. It may involve development of new treatments, drugs or preventive methods and aim to see what effect do they have on people. There are two main types of clinical studies: clinical trials (also called interventional studies) and observational studies. ThermoBreast is an interventional study.

Even though thermography has been mainly used as a supplementary tool for mammography, a number of conducted studies have confirmed its potential to be an independent, safe and reliable tool for earlier breast cancer detection and prediction. This has been propelled by the recent improvement of infrared sensors and the development of computer vision models. As a volunteer for the ThermoBreast project, you have the chance to make an impact on the future of breast cancer screening for yourself, your loved ones, and future generations. This is an incredible opportunity to help improve the lives of people all around the world.
All clinical trials have rules about who can and cannot participate. These rules are called “eligibility criteria” but may also be referred to as inclusion/exclusion criteria. The criteria are based on factors such as age, gender, the type and stage of a disease, previous treatment history, and other medical conditions. The eligibility criteria define the patient population that is being studied and are designed to protect the safety of participants in the trial.
You can take part in ThermoBreast clinical study if you are:
Thermography is a non–invasive, non–contact, and radiation–free imaging technology that utilizes an infrared camera to create an image (thermogram) of a patient’s skin temperature. This procedure is safe for both the patient and the technician conducting the screening, as it does not involve radiation exposure or any other invasive procedures.
The study duration for individual patients will be maximally up to 3 years.
Participation in the study is voluntary, you can withdraw at any time.
The ThermoBreast study has been approved by the National Committees for Medical and Health Research Ethics and we put every effort to ensure that you’re comfortable with your participation. However, if you have any concerns or complaints about the study, please feel free to contact the project coordinator at: firstname.lastname@example.org
