Thermography Exam Procedure

What to expect at your Breast Scan

Your initial appointment will take 1 hour. 
During this time you will complete the breast health questionnaire - and a detailed health history.
You will then be taken to a private examination room where you will be asked to disrobe from the waist up in order to become 
acclimated to the temperature of the room. 

A female technician will be available to answer any questions. 

After 15 minutes, the technician will take a series of images including front, lateral, and oblique views. 
You then will be asked to plunge your hands into cold water for 60 seconds.This is known as a stress test - the shock of the cold water 
will put your body into a "fright and flight" response. Normal blood vessels will contract and cool down while blood vessels feeding 
abnormal cells will not. The technician will then repeat the process of taking the images for a before and after view. 
The image taking itself only takes about  25 minutes.

After the exam you will get a half an hour consultation about undersatnding the technology and reading your report.

You will actually see the images of your breast exam, you will learn about potential issues you may have, and be given
advice on how to improve your health and help prevent breast diseases. Your written report will follow in a two weeks time, sent by e-mail or regular mail.

No rush orders on reports are available, so please book ahead for thermography, before you are planning to see your doctor.
