Thermography Scan Prices & Descriptions
The breast images are from the neck to below the breasts. The images are front, side views, each breast individually, under both breasts, under the armpits and the back. We are not just looking for cancer, we are looking for imbalances that may lead to problems in the future. Cancer does not develop overnight and the body exhibits certain characteristics before the cancer actually forms. There are many factors that can influence the health of the breast, such as: thyroid dysfunction, hormone imbalances, lymphatic congestion, toxicity, calcification and more. Thermography can identify these concerns so that a plan can be put into action.
Women’s & Men’s Health Screen
Head, neck, chest, back, abdomen
The head and neck images can identify dental infections, TMJ, sinus issues, carotid artery disease, thyroid dysfunction and more. The chest images include the breast but also looks at the heart, lungs, esophagus and spinal problems. The abdomen can see if there is developing pathology in the bladder, uterus, colon, liver, gallbladder and more. The Health Screen is where most people like to start so they can have a thorough overview of the body and what areas may need to be addressed.
Full Body Scan, Female & Male

Do not use any skin creams, lotions, deodorants or powders that may cause inflammation on your breasts or underarms on the day of your scan. We recommend women wear a blouse and pants or skirt to your scan and please do not wear an underwire bra to the exam.
