Thermography, or Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI) is a non-invasive imaging procedure for monitoring physical conditions by showing thermal changes present in the body. Images can be taken of the breast, whole body, or area(s) of interest. DITI is FDA Registered, painless, does not employ the use of radiation, and involves no contact with the body. Our technicians are certified through the American College of Clinical Thermology (ACCT).
DITI provides for the earliest detection of breast health as well as many other issues via a technology that shows physiology and metabolic processes. X-rays, CT scans, Ultrasound, and MRI are technologies that show structure. With DITI – an infrared heat-detecting camera displays the infrared energy emitted from the surface of your skin, reflected through the sympathetic nervous system, and converts it into electrical impulses visualized in color.
Thermography is used across a wide variety of areas for evaluation and monitoring of various conditions including:
- Breast health
- Back injuries
- Periodontal disease
- Vascular disease
- Digestive disorders
- Nerve damage/neuropathy
- Sprains and strains
- Many other conditions
Tumors may be detected at the beginning stage of formation when vascular changes show an area is creating a new blood supply, a process known as angiogenesis. DITI can establish risk factors and you can use this information to take steps towards intervention.
Our ACCT Certified technicians can take images of the whole body or just the areas of interest. These images are stored on computer files then sent electronically to a Thermologist (a licensed Medical Doctor and Certified by the American College of Clinical Thermology (or ACCT) for interpretation and reporting. Your report is color printed and normally completed in a just a few days. We encourage you to review and address your results with your healthcare professional(s).
