What Happens During a Breast Thermogram?

The first of two series of images of the breasts are taken after the patient disrobes above the waist and acclimates to room temperature for ten minutes. The second set is taken after the hands are submerged in cold water for one minute.

There’s no radiation, no compression and no pain. Having a thermogram is as easy as having your picture taken.

Thermography is a screening tool for breast cancer that is best utilized with regular breast self-exams (BSE) and annual clinical breast exams (CBE) by a healthcare professional.
