Breast Cancer Screenings in Arizona

Learn More About Thermography in Scottsdale, AZ

You can screen for breast cancer and painful inflammations without unsafe radiation at the Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine.* At our Scottsdale integrative medical center, established patients can simply call to make an appointment for a thermogram. New patients who wish to have thermography are evaluated medically before having the test. Other patients may be referred just for a thermogram by their regular physician, to whom we can send a report.

Contact us today to schedule an appointment for breast cancer screening.

About Your Exam

Prior to the exam, you will want to avoid activities that can increase the surface blood supply, causing the exam to appear inflammatory and falsely positive. In order to get the best possible examination, free of artifact, the following are STRONGLY recommended.

The following situations are not permissible for a thermogram:

  • Sunbathing for 5 days before the exam (possibility of sunburn)
  • Use of creams or lotions the day of the exam (stimulates the skin)
  • Use of deodorants or antiperspirants the day of the exam (stimulates the skin)
  • Physical therapy, EMS, TENS, ultrasound treatment, acupuncture, chiropractic, hot/cold pack use 24 hours prior to the exam
  • Exercise, sexual intercourse, hot baths or showers 24 hours prior to the exam
  • Coffee 24 hours prior to the exam
  • Breast biopsy 3 months prior to the exam
  • Nursing mothers - please nurse at least one hour before the exam

Just prior to the exam, you will be escorted to a private room where the exam takes place. At that time, you will be asked to undress from the waist up, and leave your breasts exposed to the air for 15 minutes (to equilibrate to the environment of the room). The breasts will remain exposed during the examination.

All of our thermography staff are female. If you would like someone to be with you during the test, you are welcome to bring that person with you into the exam room.

Call (480) 418-0220 to speak to the staff at our Scottsdale integrative medical center.

Before I came to the center doctors of told me I had fibromyalgia , irritable bowel syndrome , Renards tendencies panic attacks and a host of other things. Az center for advanced medicine started over they did not assume the other Dr’s were correct. They tested me for everything. I did have toxic levels of lead and aluminum in my system and I am allergic to eggs 🥚 and dairy 🥛. When I went to them I was on 7 different medications daily and 5 as needed (almost daily). After the chelation therapy I was able to get off All the medication!! I was hardly able to move and unable to work.

  • Doctors that listen and care!

    “I am a chronic Lyme patient and on a very long road to recovery. I have seen many doctors. I can't count the times I have felt like I was on the clock or get my 15 minutes of attention and then pushed out the door. At ACAM I never feel that way, for the first time I feel hope, understanding and compassion from Dr. Grout and her amazing staff!”

  • I am so thankful to you this Thanksgiving weekend for giving me my health and my life back!

    “I am so thankful to you this Thanksgiving weekend for giving me my health and my life back! Good news- I am still good and not reacting to fluorescent lights anymore. Also I seem to be reacting to chemicals less than before. I have lost that totally grounded feeling, but no more panic attacks and I can work all day without any neurological symptoms. I have had no neuro symptoms at all since I had the [Chiren] treatment in September. This is so amazing!!! I can even drink coffee and wine in small amounts now. Yeah! But have to stick to the gluten free/dairy free diet because I now get asthma symptoms when I eat anything that has gluten or dairy in it. Also my stomach can’t handle dairy any more since I’ve been off it so long. So I can’t put milk in my coffee – oh well. Had a few no-nos yesterday for the holiday and am feeling it in my chest today. Also itching- ears, eyes and skin on my face. Weird- it’s almost like I get when I am exposed to a cat. The best thing is that I am not getting any neurological symptoms anymore and I feel totally normal. I can handle a little respiratory reaction every now and then and I have my inhaler if I get into any breathing trouble. So far it has been mild and just annoying. My whole family is now gluten free and everyone is doing great! No one has been sick for the last 6 months. : ) My son, off gluten, is amazing. He just brought home a report card of straight A’s and has no more twitching or tics. *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.
