No physical stimulation or treatment of the breasts, chest, neck, or back for 24 hours before the exam (no chiropractic, acupuncture, TENS, physical therapy, electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, hot or cold pack use).

Physical exercise that might affect breast circulation should be avoided for 24 hours prior to your exam.

No shaving or other hair removal of the areas to be imaged the day of the exam.

Cigarettes should not be smoked for two hours prior to the exam.

If bathing, it must be no closer than 1 hour before the exam.

Ideally, the exam should not be performed between the sixth and thirteenth day of the cycle.

  • Please note: During the examination you will be disrobed from the waist up for both imaging and to allow for the surface temperature of the body to equilibrate with the room. A female technician will perform the imaging for you.

Surgical procedures such as implants, reductions, and biopsies do not interfere with infrared imaging. Breast thermography is perfectly safe to have during pregnancy or when nursing.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact our center (714-633-9532).
