THERMOGRAPHY

THERMOGRAPHY

What is Thermography?

Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI), is a non-invasive, sensitive and reliable means of graphically mapping and displaying skin surface temperature.

 

DITI is well regarded as a way of monitoring breast health over time. Normal breasts have a stable thermographic pattern that does not change over time (much like a fingerprint). The purpose of the initial breast study is to establish the normal baseline pattern for each individual patient to which all future thermograms are compared. Any changes recorded can mean that there may be functional changes within the breast that call for further investigation.

 

DITI does not replace mammograms, MRIs, or ultrasounds, but the three types of screening can compliment each other. It also has the ability to observe changes in the breast long before a cancer develops, therefore, it can keep a check on the health status of the breasts.
