Get ready for an experience unlike any other.

Our QTbreasthealth Centers are designed to place comfort and relaxation at the forefront. Each offers a calm, peaceful environment that’s miles apart from a typical medical office, with natural elements, soothing music, and expert staff able to attend to every need.

The right atmosphere for true relaxation

At the center of the QTbreasthealth experience is the QTscanTM, which places your breast in a gentle warm water bath while the images are taken. There is no compression, and absolutely no pain. It’s so comfortable that many women fall asleep.

To further your wellbeing, every QTbreasthealth Center offers comforting scents, soft robes, and even your choice of music while the QTscan is performed. You’ll be personally welcomed upon arrival, and when your results are ready, you have the option of discussing them with a breast health expert via a phone or video call.

Every aspect has been designed to create a calm experience that removes anxiety in favor of tranquility and comfort. All with the reassurance of a true 3D ultrasound image.

What to expect during your QTscan

From arrival to presentation of your results, every step of your QTscan experience is thoughtful and created around you.

Upon arrival at your local QTbreasthealth Center, you’ll be personally greeted by a friendly team member. They will assist with your check in, and ask you to complete a brief questionnaire, if you haven’t already done so online.

If you didn’t pre-pay the $600 fee, you can do so when you arrive by credit card, check or your FSA/HSA card. While we do not currently accept insurance, we can provide a receipt that will allow you to request reimbursement from your insurance company or FSA/HSA account.

A team member will escort you to the exam room, where you will undress from the waist up. A soft robe will be provided for your comfort. When you are ready, a QTbreasthealth technician will enter the room and help you get comfortably positioned on the QTscanner. A magnet will be carefully placed on your breast, and you will lie in a relaxing face-down position, with your breast gently resting in a pool of body-temperature water.

The total scan time is about 30 minutes, depending on your breast size. There is no compression, no exposure to radiation, no injections, and no pain. Once the QTscan is complete, the technician will hand you a towel to dry off your chest, and you will be escorted to the changing area. From check-in to departure, your total visit with us should take an hour or so in total.

Answers to your most common questions

  • What does QT stand for?

    QT stands for Quantitative Transmission, the innovative ultrasound technology that is the foundation of the QTscan.

  • What’s different about a QTscan?

    Most traditional breast imaging technologies take pictures of your breasts in 2- dimensional views, or use those 2D views to reconstruct an approximation of 3D images. A QTscan captures the third dimension in a real sense. It does so by using both reflection and transmission modalities. This suggests that direct speed-of-sound measurements have the potential to discriminate between different types of tissue. The QTscan can detect objects as small as just a few hundred cells.

  • Is a QTscan safe?

    The QTscan uses no radiation, so it can be available to women of all ages. Unlike radiation-based imaging tests, the QTscan also has no frequency limits.

  • Does a QTscan hurt?

    The QTscan uses no compression or injections. Most women who experience a QTscan say that it is a painless, comfortable experience. Some even fall asleep during the scanning process, as their breast rests in a soothing container of body-temperature water.

  • Who created the QTscan?

    QT Ultrasound is the parent company of QTbreasthealth, and the creator of the QTscan. For more information, please visit the QT Ultrasound website.

  • Where are you located?

  • What does a QTscan cost?

    A QTscan is $600 and can be paid by credit card, check, or your FSA/HSA card. Payment can be taken at the time of your appointment, or you can pre-pay if you schedule your appointment via our website. If you choose to pre-pay prior to your appointment, you will receive a $50 courtesy discount.

  • Can my doctor refer me to QTbreasthealth for a QTscan?

    Your doctor may refer you for a QTscan, but you can also decide on your own to schedule a QTscan, as a referral is not required. Please note that since our technology is new, some doctors may not be aware of it as a breakthrough breast imaging option. Especially if you’ve had a mammogram and did not receive clear results due to dense breasts or implants, a QTscan may be an excellent follow-up imaging option to discuss with your doctor.

  • Will insurance cover the cost of a QTscan?

    QTbreasthealth does not currently accept insurance. We can provide a receipt to request reimbursement from your insurance company or FSA/HSA account.

  • How long will the appointment take?

    Your QTscan appointment will take about an hour from arrival to departure. This includes your check in, scan time, and changing your clothes in between.

  • Is there anyone not recommended for a QTscan?

    The QTscan is not appropriate for the following patients:

    • Those advised by their physician to avoid immersing their breast in water, such as after a biopsy procedure
    • Those with open wounds or sores on their breasts
    • Women with nipple discharge
    • Pregnant or lactating women
    • Patients weighing more than 400 lbs
    • Those with a breast cup size greater than DDD or 109mm at the largest circumference (as they may not comfortably fit in the scan tank)
    • Patients with magnetic implants, such as pacemakers
    • Those with allergies to chlorine, alcohol wipes, or medical grade adhesive tape.
  • How will I get a copy of the images for my doctor?

    At your request, we can arrange for a PDF report of your QTscan results to be sent to your doctor. Because our QTscan uses proprietary software to read images, a PDF report is the best method to communicate findings. If requested, our physicians can also schedule a time to review the images with your doctor.

  • What happens if the images show something of concern?

    If your QTscan shows a finding, we will provide all location and size details in your results report, so your physician has detailed information and can speak with you about any recommended follow-up or next steps.

  • How do I tell other women about QTbreasthealth?

    We encourage you to connect with us on social media, and invite your family and friends to do the same. We regularly share information and insights about our QTbreasthealth Centers, patient testimonials, clinical trial updates, staff expertise and more. If you’ve had an outstanding experience with us, please share it with us, and other women you believe would benefit from our breakthrough technology.
