 Digital Infrared Thermography Clinic


October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Doctors Naturae is proud to offer our 3rd Annual Digital Infrared Thermography Imaging Clinic


HealthSCAN provides Digital Infrared Thermographic Imaging, or more commonly known as Thermography, which is a non-invasive test that uses a infrared camera to measure and pinpoint abnormal thermal changes within the body, which can indicate early stage breast cancer and numerous physiological problems. The camera gauges body tissue heat energy that is reflected on a high-speed computer for imaging. Generally, problem areas show high temperatures due to increased blood flow and increased metabolic activity.


The scan is harmless, non-invasive, no radiation, economical, FDA approved technology, and requires only a minimal amount of your time. HealthSCAN has helped many patients get to the cause of their condition so that proper treatment can be rendered.
