How to Use Your Thermal Scan Interpretation
At Midnight Sun Healing our Certified Clinical Technicians are passionate about providing you quality thermal imaging in a professional, caring environment. Thermography is an excellent preventative measure, but we are very limited in the amount of information we can discuss with you regarding your thermal scan or any type of diagnosis because we are clinical technicians, not doctors. The information below is provided to help you better understand how a thermal scan interpretation can help you and/or your practitioner make a more informed decision regarding your health. If you have questions, please call our office for further assistance.
• Some of our clients review the results of the Meditherm thermal scan interpretation on their own.
• Others take their Meditherm thermal scan interpretation to their doctor for review and consultation. If your doctor has questions or concerns about the thermal scan interpretation, they are to contact Midnight Sun Healing, who will contact Meditherm.
