DITI (Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging or Thermography) is a non-invasive
diagnostic technique that allows the examiner to visualize 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 visualized in color on a monitor. This visual image graphically maps the
body temperature and is referred to as a thermogram.
