Abstract

A thermomastographic apparatus for differentiation diagnostics for detecting breast pathology in women contains thermosensitive liquid crystals deposited on a flexible, transparent base plate of organic polymer as a foil, comprising simultaneously a carrier and a screen. The apparatus comprises two thermographic matrices, each comprising two test plates for simultaneous examination of both breasts, wherein the first matrix is used for detecting pathophysiological changes of hypothermal expression, and the second matrix is used for detecting pathophysiological changes of hyperthermal expression, in relation to physiological human temperature of 36,6°C, and wherein each test plate is U-shaped and contains at least one monomolecular, continuous layer comprised of a homogenized mixture of liquid crystals exhibiting a thermooptical effect and sealed with elastomer. The apparatus is used for detecting and differentiating between abnormal distributions of superficial temperature of mammary glands in women mapping pathological changes, in particular for detecting changes such as cysts (cystis), fibrotic changes (degeneratio fibro-cystica), inflammatory processes (mastitis), adenous type proliferation (adenoma), carcinous type proliferation (carcinoma), in particular as a test for screening assays.
