Thermography

Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI)

Thermology is a medical science that uses infrared images of the body to diagnose problems. It is often referred to as “Digital Infrared thermal imaging”,  or DITI. All patients’ thermograms are interpreted by board-certified Medical Doctors who are certified in Thermology.

 

Thermology can play an integral part in monitoring and maintaining health and wellbeing over a patient’s lifetime. As a non-invasive, completely safe test of physiology, DITI can provide healthcare professionals with unique findings that are adjunctive to other specialized tests that don’t show pain and dysfunction.

DITI is often the  missing piece of the clinical puzzle.

Since there is a high degree of thermal symmetry in the normal body, subtle abnormal temperature asymmetry can be easily identified. Medical DITIs major clinical value is in its high sensitivity to pathology in the vascular, muscular, neural and skeletal systems and can contribute to the clinician’s pathogenesis and diagnosis.

 

X-ray, CT, Ultrasound and MRI, etc. are tests of anatomy and structure. EMG is a test of motor physiology. DITI is unique in its capability to show physiological change and metabolic processes. It has also proven to be a very useful complementary procedure to other diagnostic modalities.

 

This clinical test is supported by 30+ years of research and over 8000 published medical studies. The procedure takes between 30 and 60 minutes, requires no physical contact and uses no radiation.

 

Thermography is particularly useful for women who have dense brest tissue of women who have undergone mastectomy and other surgeries of the breast.

 

Two screenings generally 3 to 4 months apart will typically establish a thermal baseline that is used for all future analysis and is used to monitor the tissue for changes over time. You will receive a full report with images and the doctor’s interpretation within about 10 business days.

Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) is not usually detected by mammograms or ultrasounds. Its aggressive nature makes early section critical. This image shows a thermogram of a woman with IBC who had no symptoms of the disease. 

We partner with Picture My Health Thermography to offer screenings on a monthly basis at Optimal Wellness Solutions.
