There are different types of thermography scans based on what you are looking for. All BTI labs offer breast thermography as well as full body thermography which always includes the breasts while also screening the rest of the body for abnormal body heat. The following appointment process applies to all types of thermal imaging offered.

Upon scheduling, the certified thermographic technician will give you instructions on filling out the intake form on our website. You must complete the form as soon as possible after you set up your appointment, as important preparation guidelines are mandatory leading up to the appointment.
Upon completing the intake form, you will be emailed a set of patient protocols. They can also be found at the top of the intake form or you can view them here.
These protocols are important as they outline what not to do in the days leading up to your thermography appointment in attempt to avoid things that may alter test results.
Once in the office, you'll meet with Elizabeth, our certified thermographic technician, to go over the screening procedure. The screening will take place in a private, temperature-controlled space with a screen between you and the technician for additional privacy. You will disrobe according to the screening type and will be left for 15 minutes to allow your body to acclimate. Following the 15 minutes you will be positioned in front of the imaging system so that the relevant surfaces of the body are imaged accordingly. The images are then captured in real-time by an ultra-sensitive medical infrared camera.
Interpretation & Report
Once the images are taken, they are electronically forwarded to our PACT (Professional Academy of Clinical Thermology) Board Certified physicians who will then interpret and digitally process the images. A full written report of the findings, including your images will be sent to you approximately 3-7 business days following your appointment. If you require the report sooner, this can be made available for an additional fee.
Once you have received the digital thermographic report an in-depth, online consultation is scheduled with the Certified Thermographic technician for a full understanding of your findings. Following the consultation, the technician will then schedule a comparison screening either at 3, 6 or 12 months per the recommendation of the Board-Certified physicians to complete your baseline.
