Body Screenings - DITI Thermography
Medical DITI Thermography (Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging) is a safe, pain-free, non-invasive diagnostic technique requiring no drugs that allows the examiner to visualize and quantify changes in skin surface temperature that are indicative of pathology.
DITI’s major clinical value is in its high sensitivity to pathology in the vascular, muscular, neural and skeletal systems. It has widespread usage as an aid for diagnosis and prognosis, as well as therapy follow up and rehabilitation, within clinical fields that include rheumatology, neurology, physiotherapy, sports medicine, oncology, pediatrics, orthopedics and many others. Results obtained with medical DITI systems are 100% objective and show excellent correlation with other diagnostic tests.
Clinical uses for DITI include:
- To define the extent of a lesion of which a diagnosis has previously been made
- To localize an abnormal area not previously identified so further diagnostic tests can be performed
- To detect early lesions before they are clinically evident
- To monitor the healing process before the patient is returned to work or training
DITI has been shown to be highly successful in the earlier detection of breast disease than has been possible through breast self-examination, doctor examination or mammography alone. It detects the subtle physiologic changes that accompany breast pathology, whether it is cancer, fibrocystic disease, an infection of 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.
All women can benefit from DITI breast screening. However, it is especially appropriate for younger women (30-50) whose denser breast tissue makes it more difficult for mammography to be effective. It is also for women of all ages who, for many reasons, are unable to undergo routine mammography. This test can provide a "clinical marker" to the doctor or mammographer that a specific area of the breast needs particularly close examination.
It takes years for a tumor to grow, thus the earliest possible indication of abnormality is needed to allow for the earliest possible treatment and intervention. DITI's role in monitoring breast health is to help in early detection and monitoring of abnormal physiology.
All of your thermograms (breast images) are kept on record and, once your stable thermal pattern has been established, any changes can be detected during your routine annual studies.
