Fees & Information
Thermography Fees & 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.
Breast & Chest Study
We are now offering to include the chest area along with the breast study for an additional $25. This study will cover the heart and lungs.
Women’s & Men’s Health Study
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 Study 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 Study, Female & Male
Head, neck, chest, back, abdomen, legs, arms, hands & feet
This study is the same as the Health Study but also includes the arms, hands, legs and feet. This screening can be beneficial for someone with diabetes, neuropathy, blood clots, injuries, arthritis and more.
Thermography can be used to identify not only dental concerns, but also the path of bacteria and inflammation stemming from teeth to other areas of the body. Studies show there is a relationship between oral health and 90% of all systemic diseases in the body.
2 Regions of Interest Study (ROI)
We offer the option to choose which Region of Interest you select. For instance, it can be the Head and Breast or the Breast and the Abdominal Region. Speak with your thermographer about your concerns to decide the best thermography study for you.
