Today, breast cancer is a major health risk to all women. It silently grows
uninterrupted for 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.
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 less than 50 years of age. A 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. (Educate yourself
