PSA: breast theromography screenings to be offered July 24

From the public service announcement:

Cindy Sullivan, CCT, Clinical Thermographer nurse, will be offering screening breast thermograms at:

Asheville Integrative Medicine
832 Hendersonville Rd
Asheville NC 28803
Tel: 828-252-5545

On Tuesday, July 24, 2012, she will be performing screening breast thermograms and appointments are available from 9-2 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.

Please call 828-252-5545 to make an appointment.
