Abstract

Particular tribute should be given to British research, not only for the discovery of infrared rays by Sir William Herschel in 1800 but also for their application to prognosis in breast cancer during the 1960’s by the Congress President, K Lloyd Williams. These studies were pursued further in Germany by D von Fournier and in France by M Gautherie, who showed that the thermogenicity of breast cancer is directly proportional to its doubling time.
