We have been offering women above the age of 18 the opportunity to receive a safe, painless and wonen-friendly examination to assess the health of their breasts since November 2006.
The motivation to set up MammaHealth originated from the dissatisfaction of many women about their conventional mamogrammes. Half of women experience pain during their breast examinations which, in addition take several days before results are shared.
Those inconveniences are enough for some women to forego a mammogramme. MammaHealth offers women a painless and safe option to evaluate the health of their breasts and mammary tissue.
What is the procedure?
We welcome you and invite you into our waiting room for your body to acclimate to the temperature in our building
We'll invite you to the thermography room. Before making a thermo photo, you sit down on a stool topless for a few minutes. A female photographer tells you how to pose for optimal results.
The photographer takes 3 different pictures with the infrared camera: one of each breast and one of both breasts together (front)
Take a break
We let your body cool off for 10 minutes to monitor your vascular system.
The photographer takes the final series of 3 photos with the infrared camera.
While you wait enjoying a coffee, tea or glass of water, the doctor analyses the photos. The doctor then discusses the results with you and might give you a physical exam. At the end you will always get the results on paper to take home with you.
