Once the patient removes their top, allow three to five minutes for the patient’s skin to acclimate to the exam areas ambient temperature. The patient should not be near any environmental elements that could artificially cool or warm their skin (i.e., direct sunlight, heating or cooling vents, open windows or doors).
For the neuroTHERMAL to collect data, the patient’s skin temperature must be higher than the ambient temperature of the exam area. This is of concern for outdoor screenings. For example: If the outside temperature is 99°F/37.2°C and the patient’s skin temperature is 98°F/36.7°C the Rolling Thermal scan will not return any data.
