Breast thermography is a diagnostic procedure that images the breasts to aid in the early detection of breast cancer, is non-invasive, safe, and uses no radiation, and is an effective means to help in the diagnosis or monitoring of:
Benign Breast Tumors
Breast Cancer Risk Assessment
Fibrocystic Breast Disease
Monitoring Breast Cancer Treatment
Your breast imaging report will always refer you to your primary care physician with findings. This is because thermography is only to be used in conjunction with, not instead of, structural imaging, per the FDA.
Scans of breasts from at least 3 angles, plus closeups, includes the axilla (armpits). Each breast assessed separately with a TH grade for risk plus assessed for thermal patterns that may indicate hormonal imbalance.
TH2 normal vascular
TH3- mildly questionable
TH3+ strongly questionable
TH5 very abnormal
Allow 45-60 minutes. Can do in 30 minutes if you need faster service but we allow plenty of time for questions.
Scans of face and neck, additional closeups as needed. Useful for helping your dentist find hidden inflammation, e.g., infected root canal, jaw dysfunction, sinus infection. Allow 45 minutes.
Scans of face and neck (including dental and thyroid areas), plus full breast imaging and additional closeups as needed.

Scans from head to toes, all 4 sides, and closeups of problem areas as needed (breasts excluded - choose this option if you are a man or if you have no desire for a breast assessment or if you have had a mastectomy.) Allow 60 - 90 minutes.
Scans from top of head to pubic bone, including arms/hands. (breasts excluded - choose this option if you are a man or if you have no desire for a breast assessment or if you have had a mastectomy.) Additional closeups of problem areas as needed. Allow 60 minutes.
