Thousands of people in the United States have taken advantage of Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging. (DITI) DITI detects heat to measure the physiological activity in your body. This clinical test is supported by 30 years of research and over 8000 published medical studies. This procedure takes less than 20 minutes, requires no physical contact, is 100% safe with no radiation and is FDA approved.
Medical DITI is a non-invasive, safe, diagnostic tool that pictures and analyzes changes in the skin’s surface temperature without the use of radiation. While X-rays, ultrasound, and mammography show us the structure of the body, they will miss such things as active inflammation and increased blood supply as found in many illnesses. DITI is a unique technology that takes a picture and creates a map of the infrared patterns of the body. It is different from other screening tools because it helps you to see how your body functions.
DITI is now available to people in the area who want access to the earliest, safest, and most comfortable screening that technology offers without sacrificing effectiveness. An infrared scanning device is used to convert infrared imaging from the skin surface into electrical impulses that are shown in color on a monitor.
This visual image maps the body temperature and is referred to as a thermogram. The spectrum of colors indicates an increase or decrease in the amount of heat being emitted from the body surface. Since there is a high degree of thermal symmetry in the normal body, subtle abnormal temperature differences are easily identified. Medical DITI is highly sensitive to variations in the vascular, muscular, neural, and skeletal systems and can contribute invaluable information to a diagnosis made by a physician.
Is it accurate? Yes. As a routine screening tool, it has been shown to be 97% effective at detecting benign vs. malignant breast abnormalities. One study tracked 1537 women with abnormal thermograms for 12 years.
They had normal mammograms and physical exams. Within 5 years, 40% of the women developed malignancies. The researchers commented, “an abnormal thermogram is the single most important marker of high risk for the future development of breast cancer”. These results have been repeated time and again for nearly 30 years. (See our research link)
Medical DITI has been used extensively in human medicine in the U.S., Europe, and Asia for the past 20 years. Current state-of-the-art, PC-based infrared technology is now designed specifically for clinical use.
It is used as an aid for diagnosis and prognosis, as well as monitoring therapy progress, for conditions and injuries, including:
Dental and TMJ
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Referred Pain Syndrome
