Key Benefit: FDA approved, non-invasive imaging procedure that allows for the assessment of breast health without pain or radiation. Thermology can detect unusual vascular patterns in the body that may require further examination without ever touching the body.
Thermology, also known as Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI), is a non-invasive procedure that uses the heat, or thermal, activity in the human body to assess health—most notably, breast health. We also use thermology to examine circulation, for pre- and post-treatment images, and a variety of other situations.
Heat sensitive technology is used to detect areas of increased activity which may be a sign of trouble. All women can benefit from thermology breast screening. It sometimes takes months to years for a cancerous tumor to grow thus the earliest possible indication of abnormality is needed to allow for the earliest possible treatment and intervention, and looking at thermal images is considered a very early screening tool. Thermology’s role in breast health is to help in early detection and monitoring.
