Additional Service Added
Thomas Hudson, MD, a diagnostic radiologist and one of our EMI physician interpreters, is now offering a consultation service for patients who would like more clarification or detail about their thermogram results. Dr. Hudson, is also the author of Journey to Hope, a book about breast cancer prevention.
Many patients are confused about how thermography relates to other imaging tests, in terms of the strengths and weaknesses of each test.
Having practiced general radiology for many years before becoming a breast imaging specialist, Dr. Hudson can help patients understand how everything fits together and help patients to make choices and decisions that are right for them.
Consultations are done by phone or Skype and will be fee for service, beginning at $75 for 15 minutes for a simple review of the patient’s thermogram report, images, and whatever questions they may have. For reports where Dr. Hudson was not the initial interpreter, this is not intended as a “second opinion,” but simply a review of the findings, what they mean, and advice about other appropriate diagnostic tests or how to interact with their physician regarding thermogram results.
As a specialist in breast imaging, Dr. Hudson can be especially helpful to women with inconclusive mammogram results, a biopsy recommendation they are unsure about, or who have been recently diagnosed with breast cancer, and don’t know where to turn next. A 15 minute consultation will suffice for most situations, but longer appointments are also available, including a formal review of mammogram/ultrasound images and reports if desired.
