Ask for a Thyroid Collar at your next Mammogram

Ask for a Thyroid Collar at Your Next Mammogram


by Kathleen Lisson, CMT, CLT

I recently attended a class on how to give scar massage to post-mastectomy clients and one of my classmates mentioned that she always wore a thyroid guard when she had her mammogram. I was surprised! I had never heard of a thyroid collar and I have low thyroid hormone. I would like to use this blog post to spread the news that this is an option for all women, and it just takes a second to ask. Guards are also available for dental x-rays.
