THE EXAM

A Thermography Exam typically takes between 15 -45 minutes to perform.

You will be given a lightweight gown to change into while you acclimate to the ambient temperature of the examination room.  If you have not already filled out a medical history questionnaire, you will fill it out at this time.  We will review your medical history and demonstrate the required views and positioning necessary for your exam.

HOW THE TEST WILL FEEL

The test takes place in a relaxed, peaceful & private room. The room air may feel cool as we adjust to room temperature before scanning but you will be lightly robed during the cooling process (about ten minutes).  During the examination you will disrobe from the waist up for both imaging and to allow for the surface temperature of the body to acclimate with the room.

A female technician will take your images. Obtaining a thermographic image is like having your picture taken.  There is no direct contact between you and the camera.  There is no radiation, no injection, nothing to drink.  The procedure is totally non- invasive and the camera does not emit radiation of any kind.

THE REPORT

Your information is then uploaded through a secure server and assigned to a medical doctor for final interpretation.  This process is similar to sending your x-rays to a radiologist for interpretation.  Once we receive the report, we then forward a copy directly to you and any other health care practitioner requested.  If you have any questions or concerns once receiving your results, we are always available to consult with you.

A color printed report and images are generally available within 3-7 business days.  Your images will be read by Dr. Gregory Melvin who is trained and certified to interpret thermograms by the American College of Clinical Thermography.  Dr. Melvin will analyze the results and make recommendations as to how you can go about bringing your body back into balance and prevent further dysfunction.

While participation in a DITI early detection program can increase your chance of detecting and monitoring breast disease, as with all other tests, it is still not 100% guarantee of detection.
