(Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging or Thermography) is a non- invasive
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
electircal impulses that are visualised in color on a monitor. This
visual image graphically maps the body temperature and is referred to
as a thermogram.
Today, breast cancer is a major health risk to all
women. It silently grows and destroys uninterrupted for 10 years. Early
detection and prevention is the key.
Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging takes a thermal picture to determine
abnormalities or changes in the breast tissue. Thermography can detect
irregular patterns years before a mammogram. Best of all, Thermal
Imaging is painless, non-invasive, and has no radiation.
For the sake of ourselves, our mothers, grandmothers, wives, daughters, sisters, and friends, we can beat this.
Early detection saves lives.
DITI's role in breast cancer and other breast disorders is to help in
early detection and monitoring of abnormal physiology and the
establishment of risk factors for the development or existence of
disease. When used with other procedures, the best possible evaluation
of breast health is made.
This 15 minute non-invasive test is a valuable procedure for alerting
your GP or specialist to the possibility of underlying breast disease.
This test is designed to improve chances for detecting fast-growing,
active tumors in the intervals between mammographic screenings or when
mammography is not indicated by screening guidelines for women under 50
years of age. All patient's thermograms (breast images) are kept on
record and form a baseline for all future routine evaluations.
DITI is especially appropriate for younger women between 30 and 50
whose denser breast tissue makes it more difficult for mammography to
pick up suspicious lesions. This test can provide a 'clinical marker'
to the doctor or mammographer that a specific area of the breast needs
particularly close examination. The faster a malignant tumor grows, the
more infrared radiation it generates. For younger women in particular,
results from DITI screening can lead to earlier detection and
ultimately, longer life.
