Please check any protocol items that you cannot or did not follow for the evaluating doctors consideration.
You cannot be sunburned or have a fever at the time of your examination.
Avoid chiropractic care, physical therapy, massage therapy, analgesic creams, balms, magnets or

Thermography of the breasts is a procedure utilizing computerized thermal imaging cameras to visualize and obtain an image of the heat coming from the surface of the skin. The thermographic procedure is performed as an aid to the evaluation of abnormal temperature patterns of the breast which may or may not indicate the presence of a disease process.
Thermography is NOT a standalone diagnostic tool. It is an adjunctive tool, which while reliable, should be used by the primary care physician along with other diagnostic tests and analysis so as to arrive at a provisional or more complete diagnosis. No surgical procedure should be based on breast thermal imaging alone. Physical examination, mammography, ultrasound, palpation, MRI, biopsy, blood test, etc. are needed to arrive at a final diagnosis.
I understand that I will be disrobed from the waist up to allow the surface of my body to cool to an ambient room temperature. This procedure does not use radiation, compression, and it has no known risks or side effects.
The information provided will be made available to my personal physician or others as I so designate for further diagnosis and analysis in the overall evaluation of my breast health. I have been given preparation protocols to insure the most accurate thermographic evaluation of my breasts possible and I agree that I have completed the requirements.
I certify that I have complied with the above protocols and preparation instructions and/or that I have noted any protocol(s) I was unable to comply with so that a decision can be made as to whether or not I can have thermographic imaging on the day scheduled. I understand that Thermography is not a standalone screening.
Having received satisfactory answers to all questions, I consent to the thermographic examination. Patient’s Signature__________________________________________ Date: ________________ Print Patient’s Name ______________________________________________________________

Il se massa le côté droit et crut ressentir un élancement plus aigu. Pour ne rien arranger, il avait fait à nouveau ce rêve de noyade, signe d’anxiété chez lui.
