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.

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.
