Delayed detection of certain conditions can lead to delayed treatment, worse outcomes, and higher cost of care. Unfortunately, anatomical screenings, using x-rays, especially when repeated over years or decades, may result in cumulative radiation exposure. Such exposure may even create the conditions they are intended to detect.
At Inner Image Health Screening, we understand the importance of using a balance of screening technologies that complement one another without increasing your risks.
Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging is a state-of-the-art technology designed for early detection. It is 100% safe, painless, radiation-free, and can be used in conjunction with other screening methods. Thermography offers early detection without the fear of radiation exposure, chemical injection, or physical contact - no squishing, or stretching of sensitive body tissue.
While thermography is not an alternative to mammograms, it has been recognized by the FDA as an effective adjunct in regards to breast health.
About a week after your screening, you will receive (via email, or snail mail) a color copy of your images, along with a written interpretation by a Medical Doctor who is trained and certified in thermology. In critical situations, urgent interpretation is available.
Below are just a few of the advantages of Thermography. Please feel free to call us to discuss thermography if you have any questions or concerns.
Thermography offers you a unique opportunity to detect physiological conditions that sometimes elude detection by other modalities.
Thermal Breast Screening is safe for women of all ages. It eases concern about lifetime exposure to radiation.
Thermal imaging is as benign as having your picture taken. Nothing touches your body, which means there is no trauma to delicate tissue.
Your images are read by a Medical Doctor who specializes in the interpretation of thermal scans. You'll receive a detailed report, which is useful as an adjunct to other screening modalities.
At $195 for annual imaging, thermography is easy on the budget. To keep our prices down, payment is due at the time of service. Unlike other screening, the cost of the doctor's interpretation is included in the price; there's no "gotcha". Treat yourself to the safest, most state-of the-art screening available. Your health is worth it!
"My daughter-in-law was the first to tell me about Inner Image Thermography, and I'm awfully glad she did. What a pleasant change from my yearly mammogram. I felt comfortable and welcomed, and not like a number at a bake shop, and the procedure was fast, simple, and painless in all manner of speaking."
