AT THE CLINIC:
Arrive a few minutes early to your appointment. Your body will take some time to adjust to the temperature of the room. You will be given a cover 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. Neurological testing can include a cold stress test which simply involves placing a hand or foot in a cool bowl of water or having a gel pad applied to any part of the body.
You are welcome to bring a friend, partner or spouse into the imaging room for the scan.
