What is Thermography?

Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging ‘DITI’ is a non invasive test of physiology (or function). It is a life saving procedure that can alert you and your doctor to changes in your body that may indicate early stage breast disease or other disease processes that may be developing in the body. Thermography offers the opportunity of earlier detection of breast disease than has been possible through breast self examination, doctor examination, or mammography alone. And the screening is done without any pain, radiation, or compression!

Thermography is a completely non-invasive clinical imaging procedure for detecting and monitoring a number of diseases and physical injuries by showing thermal abnormalities present in the body.

It is used as an aid for diagnosis and prognosis, as well as monitoring therapy progress for conditions and injuries including:

  • Back Injuries
  • Breast Disease
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Disc Disease
  • Inflammatory Pain
  • Skin Cancer
  • Referred Pain Syndrome
  • Sprain / Strain
  • Stroke Screening
  • Whiplash
  • Digestive Disorders
  • Arthritis
  • Headache
  • Nerve Damage
  • Unexplained Pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • RSD (CRPS)
  • Dental and TMJ
  • Artery Inflammation
  • Vascular Disease

X-Ray, C.T., Ultrasound and M.R.I are all tests of ‘anatomy’ that measure the structures of your body whereas thermography is unique in its capability to show the physiological change and metabolic processes occuring in the body.

Although many people associate thermography as a breast screening, images can be taken of the entire body or just regions of interest. The digitized images are stored on a computer and are sent electronically to a Thermologist, a medical doctor certified in thermal interpretations, for analysis and report. Your report is sent directly to you and to any healthcare professionals reques
