Appointments - What You Can Expect

Once you book an appointment, you will receive an email confirmation with a link to the forms & instructions to complete and review prior to your scan. You can review this information here.


When arriving at our office on the day of your scan, you will be greeted and escorted to the imaging room. The technician serving you will instruct you on what clothing needs to be removed and will provide a hospital gown to change into. This enables your body to adjust to the room temperature and helps prepare it for the scanning.


For Full Body scans, you will need to remove all clothing and jewelry, except for the underwear. For other scans, you will only need to remove clothing for the area(s) being scanned. 


While you are changing and cooling down, the technician will step out and review your completed forms. While waiting, be sure not to scratch or touch the areas to be scanned, as this can alter your skin temperature. When the technician returns, she will review your forms with you to make certain she has all the necessary information for the interpreting doctor.


The session will involve taking several images with the camera placed a few feet away from the body and the scanned area(s) will need to be fully disrobed. You need to be still during the brief times when the images are taken, but holding your breath is not necessary and you can relax in between scans. The length of an appointment is typically 20 minutes for one area of interest and up to 60 minutes for a full body.


Once your scanning is complete, the technician can review your images with you and answer any questions. Then we can process your payment at the front desk and schedule your complimentary Report Review and your next screening appointment. For new female clients we have a 90-day protocol to establish your unique breast baseline, so plan on returning in three months to complete this required step. This is a one-time protocol to ensure your patterns are stable and then it is recommended annually thereafter.


After your imaging session is finished, our staff will send your health history and thermal images to our team of medical doctors for interpretation. Our office will receive the written report from the doctor and we will forward a copy of the report and corresponding images to you and your doctor via mail, email (encrypted), or fax.


When you receive your report and images you will need to contact our office to schedule your complimentary Report Review to discuss your results in detail with the thermographer. Even if your doctor is familiar with thermography, we encourage you to take advantage of a free, detailed review of your results. The Report Review is when we can spend some extra time discussing next steps to take and/or share our favorite referrals with you of trustworthy health professionals, according to the findings in your report. We will take the time to ensure you get the full value of your thermography service.

Breast thermography is not a replacement for mammography or any other form of breast imaging. Breast thermography is meant to be used in addition to mammography and other tests. Breast thermography and mammography are complementary procedures, one does not replace the other. All thermography reports are meant to identify thermal emissions that suggest potential risk markers only and do not in any way suggest diagnosis and/or treatment. According to studies, earliest detection is realized when multiple tests are used together. This approach includes breast self-examinations, physical breast exams by a doctor, mammography, ultrasound, MRI, thermography, and other tests that may be ordered by your physician.
