Who is qualified to take and interpret breast thermography?
There are only 2 recognized thermography boards in the United States. In 1971, the American Academy of Thermology was established by a group of M.D’s. In the late 1980s, a group of Chiropractors set up the International Academy of Clinical Thermography. All respected breast thermography clinics and interpretors are members of only these boards. Pink Image is a member of both boards. There are other boards, academies, and colleges out there. Don’t be fooled by fancy names! Pink Image interpreters received all training and were certified under Dr. Hobbins. Dr Hobbins is the original interpretator of breast thermography and all the respected interpretors in the United States studied under him. He has 35+ years of breast thermography experience and has read over 175,000 scans to date! Make sure to ask who is interpreting your scans and who they studied under, and are they board certified with the International Academy of Clinical Thermography or the American Academy of Thermology.
