The Summary abbreviates examination findings, but employs adjectives to key words for increasing statement weight consistent with increased severity of examination results.
When neither breast presents as exceeding Normal (THI) Classification, the statement is generated, 'This thermographic examination of the breasts is seen without evidence of thermal abnormality.' If, however, either breast exceeds Classification THI, but neither exceeds Borderline Normal (THII) Classification, the keyword 'without' is replaced by the keyword 'with', e.g., 'This thermographic examination of the breasts is seen with evidence of thermal abnormality.'. This statement is further modified depending on the severity of examination findings.
If either breast presents as, but neither breast exceeds Borderline Abnormal (THIII) Classification, the keyword evidence is amplified to classical evidence. Similarly, if either breast presents as Abnormal (THIV) or Severely Abnormal (THV), the phrase thermal abnormality is qualifed with the adjective 'severe' to read severe thermal abnormality. Consequently, the statement, 'This thermographic examination of the breasts is seen with classical evidence of severe thermal abnormality' serves to inform the practitioner that the patient's examination result indicates serious abnormality.
The statement 'There is a clear difference between the thermal patterns of the right breast and the left breast' arises when either the analyst mandates it by analyst response, or when the program detects significant differences in the thermal signatures of the two breasts.
The message 'The right/left breast is more thermally symptomatic than the left/right breast' appears when one breast's thermal score exceeds the thermal score of the other breast. If the difference in thermal score exceeds a preset threshold, the modifier 'significantly' precedes 'more thermally symptomatic,' e.g., 'The right/left breast is significantly more thermally symptomatic than the left/right breast
