NO GP REFERRAL REQ
Medical Thermal Imaging has been providing our services for over a decade from upwards of 40 locations Nationwide. We have a skilled team of board-certified Thermologists and Medical Doctors to support and assist you to give the best possible experience.
We use the most advanced high-resolution Medical Thermal Imaging systems to ensure we obtain the best possible images for Medical Interpretation.
Medical Thermal Imaging is Free from Radiation, Compression free, Non-contact and suitable for all ages.
Our service is adjunctive to other tests and can provide additional information to assist in further health studies.
Why might you need a Thermogram?
Abnormal breast physiology tends to have increased metabolic activity and an increase in blood supply (angiogenesis) which generates heat, revealing distinctive patterns. Identifying this activity by interpreting these patterns enables early intervention, reducing the risk of further metabolic activity.
What does having a Thermogram involve?
Having a Thermogram is non-invasive, pain-free, and doesn't involve radiation or any contact. During the examination, you will be disrobed and will allow for the surface temperature of your body to reach thermal equilibrium with the temperature of the room.
We are proud to announce that Medical Thermal Imaging has been selected as Best Practice Representatives for the Parliamentary Review 2020. We look forward to sharing our experience with other Research & Equipment Representatives.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why might I need Thermography?
Abnormal breast physiology tends to have increased metabolic activity and blood supply (angiogenesis) which generates heat, revealing distinctive patterns. Identifying this activity by interpreting these patterns enables early intervention, reducing the risk of further metabolic activity.
How often should I have a Thermogram?
In order to gain the maximum benefit from Thermography, after your first appointment which will establish your ‘baseline’, you will need an annual Thermogram in order to compare (against the baseline) and monitor any changes in your physiology which could indicate a change in your breast health.
What are the benefits of Breast Thermography?
- No Contact and Pain-free
- Compression-free and Non-invasive
What can I expect during my appointment?
Having a Thermogram is non-invasive, pain-free, and doesn’t involve radiation or any contact. During the examination, you will disrobe to allow for the surface temperature of your body to reach thermal equilibrium with the temperature of the room.
How should I prepare for my Appointment?
Certain protocols must be followed in order to ensure that your images reflect accurate information. This includes not eating, sun-bathing and exercising prior to your appointment. You will be sent a list of instructions when you arrange your appointment.
Is Thermography suitable for women under 40?
Yes, thermograms are not restricted by factors like dense breasts that may be unique to younger women. In fact, we recommend that women have a thermogram as soon as they can, even in their twenties. This allows us to create a baseline early (first thermogram) against which we can compare future thermograms and monitor any changes in your physiology.
Do I need a referral from my GP?
No, this is not necessary. If you are concerned about your health you should contact your GP, but we will not require a referral or ask you to visit your GP before you have your thermogram.

We only store your data if we provide our services to you.
- Thermography is an adjunctive procedure and all interpretive findings must be clinically correlated.
- Thermography is not a substitute for anatomical testing and results will vary from person to person.
- The absence of abnormal Thermographic findings does not mean that there is an absence of pathology.
