See your health in colors with Medical Thermal Imaging, aka Thermography
Fees range from $225-525 (see below)
Health awareness. Early Intervention. Add thermal imaging to your health portfolio.
Seeing early health warnings, before they develop into health challenges, affords time to seek appropriate diet, lifestyle and/or medical intervention to heal the body.
Did you know that mammograms are NOT recommended for dense or fibrocystic breast tissue, large breasts or breast implants? Combine breast thermal imaging, ultrasound and/or MRI in your breast health portfolio.
Some conditions seen with thermal imaging:
* inflammatory and other breast concerns
* vascular issue, neo-vascularity
* carotid, vein and arterial pathology
* referred pain or trigger points
* back, shoulder, joint injuries
* arthritis, nerve damage
* digestive disorders
* dental (ex occult infection) and TMJ
* response to treatments ex. chemo, earthing, acupuncture
Is thermal imaging right for you?
Please consider thermal imaging if you have had:
* breast implants or large breasts
* fibrocystic or dense breast tissue
* history of smoking, daily alcohol or soy consumption of 5 years or more
* history of over-eating sweets or American meat
* history of using contraceptives or HRT for 5 yrs or more, combined
* late menarche, late pregnancy, no pregnancy, amenorrhea, or late menopause
* root canals
* more than 5 mammograms, CT or PET scans
* use of pharmaceuticals that increase prolactin
* suspicious pain, inflammation, infections, numbness or tingling
* residual pain or health issues after injuries and surgeries
* concerns about therapy or treatment outcome
* high chemical exposure, eg in nail or hair salons, radiation, pesticides
* family history of genetic diseases and cancers
* visceral adiposity, or barrel-shape abdomen
How does thermal imaging work? Infrared thermography technology converts infrared, non-ionizing radiation emitted from our skin surface into electrical impulses that are visualized in colors. This technology has been used in the military, NASA, police and industrial imaging for decades, with camera resolution and software technology improving significantly since the 1950's.
FDA Approval in 1982
The FDA approved thermal imaging in 1982 as an adjunct health screening to other breast imaging technologies including MRI, ultrasound and mammography. Thermal camera quality and imaging resolution have improved by leaps and bounds since then.
Thermal Imaging Involves No Radiation, No Body Contact, and No Pain
It's like having your photographs taken in a dim, cool room.
Total Privacy Screenings
We know how awkward it can be to disrobe for medical procedures. Our fully automated camera stand allows the practitioner to operate the camera and choreograph the client remotely from behind a screen during the session, which means only the camera sees the client directly. Most thermographers, with older camera and stand technology, cannot afford the high resolution and privacy that ours could.
High Resolution FLIR Infrared Camera Imaging & Report by a Medical Doctor
We take high resolution images with world-renown FLIR thermal cameras for crisp images of your thermal patterns. All images are sent to a medical doctor trained in reading thermographic images. Then the thermography report, along with the images, are sent via a HIPAA compliant email to you. You may print or email them at your discretion. Go to www.IAMTonline.org to learn more.

Additional consultation about the report can be scheduled for $90.
(If a report is not needed for follow-up imaging, 20% off the imaging fee.)
Does insurance cover thermography?
Liberty Health Share does cover medical thermography.
HSA may pay for thermography; please check prior to scheduling.
Most insurance policies do not. Please check with your policy and ask about CPT code 93740, which stands for Breast Thermography/Temperature Gradient Study.
If your insurance does not cover breast thermal imaging, please check with United Breast Cancer Foundation if all or part of the cost would be covered. Their website is www.UBCF.org
**Infrared thermography is an FDA approved screening procedure as an adjunct to mammography. All thermography reports are meant to identify thermal markers for health risks, not diagnose or treat. The earliest detection is best realized with multiple tests: self-examination, physical exam by doctors, thermography, ultrasound, MRI, mammography and other appropriate tests the doctors may order.
