Prep for your Body Thermography Appointment

Preparing for your Appointment

The thermographic scan is non-invasive, simple and painless, however, a few simple preparations for your appointment will ensure a clear and accurate image and assessment of your test.

 Pre-exam Patient Instructions

If you have a recent sunburn or skin burn of any kind, the examination cannot take place.

Infrared Thermographic Imaging Screening Preparation
If you are very cold sensitive, bring or wear warm coverings from the waist down.  The imaging room temperature is adjusted at 68 – 70 degrees F, (21 degrees C ) for 15 minutes prior to the test we will have you acclimate to the room temperature to ensure the most accurate reading.

How It Works
CRT non-infrared imaging screening
The 30 minute CRT examination is a non-invasive, painless procedure that involves gentle contact of a skin temperature sensor on the surface of a patient’s uninjured skin to take two readings consisting of 119 measurements each:

  1. First Reading
    Consists of 119 measurements on pre-determined skin temperature points as the patient progressively undresses.
  2. 10 Minute Wait
    The patient waits while disrobed, inducing an autonomic response to the cooling stimulus of room temperature.
  3. Second Reading
    The 119 temperature measurement points are repeated.
  4. Thermogram, Profile & Report
    The patient’s data is stored on the CRT computer and then sent, via a secured internet connection to Eidam’s server, where the data is compared with over 1.5 million existing thermographic data. Within seconds, a Thermogram, Reaction Profile and Patient Evaluation Report are created and sent back to the healthcare practitioner. This information may be indicative of irregular body functioning, which the healthcare practitioner may then decide to investigate.
