From the press release:
Cindy Sullivan, CCT, Certified Thermographer nurse, will be offering screening breast thermograms at:
38 N Haywood St
Waynesville NC 28786
On Monday, April 30, 2012, she will be performing screening breast thermograms and appointments are available from 10-2 pm.
Thermography is a noninvasive, inexpensive test that does not cause radiation exposure or compression of the breasts. Approved by the FDA in 1982, a thermogram is the measurement of infrared heat coming off the skin, using technology similar to color weather maps on TV. This increased heat can signal the growth of new blood vessels that feed a tumor. Published studies show thermography can detect abnormality from 8-10 years before mammography can detect a mass.
The initial thermogram is $149.00. The screening process takes approximately 15 minutes. Results will be interpreted by an M.D. and the originals mailed to the patient within 10 days. A copy of the interpretation will go to the physician of choice, if desired.
Please call 828-452-3663 to make an appointment.
