Overview of Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging

Medical DITI is a noninvasive adjunctive diagnostic technique that allows the examiner to visualise and quantify changes in skin surface temperature. An infrared scanning device is used to convert infrared radiation emitted from the skin surface into electrical impulses that are visualised in colour on a monitor. This visual image graphically maps the body temperature and is referred to as a thermogram. The spectrum of colours indicate an increase or decrease in the amount of infrared radiation being emitted from the body surface.

Thermography is a good screening tool for inflammation which can lead to many diseases such as cancer, arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and lymphatic congestion just to name a few.  You can monitor your inflammation through thermal imaging with your doctor and become proactive in treating abnormalities before they become critical. The images below show examples of the diseases that DITI can detect.

The Examination Procedure

DITI of the breast offers the opportunity of earlier detection of breast disease than has been possible with breast self examination, doctor examination or mammography alone. 

DITI is a non invasive test. This means there is no contact with the body of any kind, no radiation and the procedure is painless. 

Results are usually back within a week and emailed or postal mailed to you.
