Breast Thermography

All women can benefit from Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging DITI breast screening. However, it is especially appropriate for younger women (30 – 50) whose denser breast tissue makes it more difficult for mammography to be effective. Also for women of all ages who, for many reasons, are unable to undergo routine mammography. This test can provide a ‘clinical marker’ to the doctor or mammographer that a specific area of the breast needs particularly close examination.

It takes years for a tumor to grow thus the earliest possible indication of abnormality is needed to allow for the earliest possible treatment and intervention. DITI’s role in monitoring breast health is to help in early detection and monitoring of abnormal physiology.

Along with comprehensive breast screening we also offer a Women’s Health Check. This series of scans offers a complete breast screening with the addition of head & neck, digestive, vascular, auto-immune, and OB-Gyn & reproductive health screenings.

All About Herbs provides woman-to-woman thermographic Women’s Health Check and breast screening in the State of Alaska.

Preparation for your scan is simple but critical to the accuracy of the results. Please be advised failure to follow these simple guidelines will require us to reschedule your appointment and FEES WILL APPLY if we are unable to proceed with your originally scheduled time slot.

*Avoid strong sunlight exposure the day of and sunburn in the days preceding your appointment

*It is very important to wear loose fitting clothing. The thermography scan will be delayed until irritation marks in the skin caused by tightly fitting garments have dissipated.
*Deodorant and make up ARE permitted.

Arrive a few minutes early to your appointment. Your body will take some time to adjust to the temperature of the clinic. After signing in with the receptionist, you will be given a gown to change into as you will be disrobing down to your underwear. Speedo type undergarments or thongs are appropriate for both men and women. You will meet your thermographer who will explain and demonstrate the required views and positions necessary for your scan. Thermal images are then taken of either the whole body or just the regions of interest.

You are welcome to bring a friend, partner or spouse into the imaging room for the scan.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
