What To Expect

  • The exam room will be somewhat cool at between 68-72 degrees which is required for the best quality thermal images.

  • You will be asked to disrobe during part of the exam for both the imaging and to allow the surface temperature of the body to equilibrate with the room. Disrobing will be waist up for breast/upper body exams and waist down for lower body exam. You may wear thong-style undergarment. You will be provided with a gown to use if needed.

  • We will take between 7-32 images of you using a thermal camera, depending on the exam you have chosen.  There is absolutely no contact between the camera and the patient and the imaging process will only take a few minutes.
