Dr. William Hobbins was one of the original researchers in mammography. He did a 7 year study 1965-1972 (mammography) and won an award for finding non-palpable cancers. Many mammographers were also thermographers at this time.
Dr. Hobbins studied with the thermography creators Guthrie and Gro in France and the breast thermography creator Dr Ray Lawson. He returned to the US in 1971 and imaged 100,000 women from 71-75. Dr. Hobbins is the leading researcher in the United States. Thermography monitors vascular patterns in the breasts which is affected by estrogen stimulation.
Which lead Dr. Hobbins to study bio-identical hormones and their effects on the breasts in France in the70s and 80s.
