The staff of physicians and technicians at Carolina Thermascan promote women's health by helping to detect cancerous activity in breast tissue before tumors form. Physicians begin the 30-minute Thermascan by asking patients to disrobe from the waist up and submerge their hands in cool water for one minute to yield a physiologic response that benefits the doctor's reading of the scan. Once fingers are sufficiently pruney, the noninvasive, radiation-free Thermascan monitors surface temperatures of the breast tissue and an infrared camera helps highlight vascular-breast patterns. High-resolution diagnostic images capture the data, which the physicians survey for bright splotches of color that indicate high temperatures and peaked vascular activity, indicative of high biochemical activity, or potentially, a tumor.

Administered by a sonographer with nearly 20 years of expertise, each Babygram Imaging, Inc. session affords soon-to-be parents a peek at their future bundle of joy sleeping, yawning, and even smiling. During sessions that last anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes, 3D or 4D scans capture both still and moving images.

Though Mariam Clinic offers free appointments and care to its patients, many of them require more expensive diagnostic laboratory tests such as lipid panels, prostate-cancer screenings, and routine bloodwork to furnish experts with full pictures of their health. Though the clinic can provide discounts on some laboratory tests to those in need, many clients are unable to afford even discounted laboratory tests.
