What is the Procedure Like?

Prior to your appointment you will receive specific instructions via email to ensure that your procedure is successful.  On the day of your appointment you will be greeted by Carol Fowler, Certified Thermography Technician who will provide you with a health history form, discuss what thermography is, the report you will receive and answer any questions you may have.  

You will then be escorted to the imaging room where you will spend approximately 15 minutes acclimating to the temperature of the room.  Once acclimated, multiple images will be taken from different angles by an infrared camera.  These images will be sent to the doctor (who is a Board Certified Thermologist) for interpretation.  A written report will be sent to you within 14 days containing your results.  This report can be shared with your primary health care provider.  

 

How do I Prepare for My Appointment?

Before you arrive for your thermogram, certain protocols must be followed in order to ensure that your images reflect accurate information. Please read these instructions and strictly adhere to them:

  • No prolonged sun exposure (especially sunburn) to the body areas being imaged 5 days prior to the exam.

  • No use of deodorants, lotions, creams, powders, or makeup (no facial makeup for full body or upper body scans) the day of the exam.

  • No shaving of the areas to be imaged the day of the exam.

  • No treatment (chiropractic, acupuncture, TENS, physical therapy, electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, hot or cold pack use) or physical stimulation of the areas to be imaged for 24 hours before the exam.

  • No exercise 4 hours prior to the exam.

  • If bathing, it must be no closer than 1 hour before the exam.

  • If you are using pain medications, please avoid taking them for 4 hours prior to the examination. You must consult with the prescribing physician for his or her consent prior to any change in medication use such as this.

  • You must wait at least 4 weeks after having a fine needle or core biopsy of the breast before a thermogram can be performed.

  • You must wait at least 8 weeks after having a lumpectomy or surgical biopsy of the breast before a thermogram can be performed.

  • If you have had any surgical procedure within the last 12 weeks, please notify our office before coming in for your appointment.
