THERMOGRAPHY BREAST HEALTH DAY

Thermography assesses breast health using heat pictures which are taken before and after a “cold challenge” of placing your hands in cold water. These images are compared with each other and with previous thermography test results, to help assess the health of your breasts.

The next Thermography Breast Health Day will be on Saturday February 9th.

The cost is $250

Great West Life Insurance policies often cover more than half of the fee.

To make an appointment or for more information please call: Thermography west on 250-590-7457 or Dr. Penny on 250-361-9888
