Thermography is also known as Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI). It is a 15 minute non invasive test of physiology. It is a valuable procedure can detect disease and injury by revealing the thermal abnormalities present in the body. Thermography can assess pain and pathology anywhere on the body and is very helpful in monitoring therapy.
Other benefits of Thermography include:
- No radiation – 100% safe for everyone
- Non-invasive, no injections
- Offers privacy – no bodily contact
Importance of Thermography for Breast Health
Thermal imaging can detect the potential presence of a tumor years before a
mammogram can see it. Therefore, thermal imaging is not meant to replace a mammogram, but compliment it.
The benefit of DITI testing is that it offers the opportunity of earlier detection of breast disease than has been possible through breast self examination, doctor examination or
mammography alone. DITI detects the subtle physiologic changes that accompany breast pathology, whether it is cancer, fibrocystic disease, an infection or a vascular disease. Your doctor can then plan accordingly and lay out a careful program to further diagnose and /or MONITOR you during and after any treatment.
