Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI)

Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI) is a clinical imaging technique that records the thermal patterns of your body which can determine cause of pain, aid in early detection of disease and pathology, as well as evaluate sensory nerve irritation or significant soft tissue injury. It can also define a previously diagnosed injury or condition, identify an abnormal area for further diagnostic testing and follow progress of healing and rehabilitation.

The procedure is painless, noninvasive and can take as little as 15 minutes. DITI offers a reliable means of graphically mapping skin surface temperature emitted from the patient's body. It monitors the thermal abnormalities of disease and injury as well as assists in the diagnosis, prognosis, therapy follow up and rehabilitation monitoring.

What happens at my thermography appointment?

A thermal imaging appointment takes approximately 15-45 minutes depending on which part of the body is being imaged. You will remove all jewelry and clothes from the part of the body being imaged (for full body you leave underpants on) and will be asked to wear a surgical gown. For a breast scan you will be asked to disrobe from the waist up.

While your skin is equalizing with room temperature you will be asked to complete paperwork.

What do I need to do to prepare for Imaging?

  • Do not have physical therapy, massage, acupuncture or any type of bodywork the day of your test.
  • Do not have anything hot to drink 2 hours before test.
  • Use little or NO deodorant
  • Do not shave underarms that day
  • No sunbathing before test.
  • No heavy body lotions or liniments on area(s) being imaged.
  • Do not smoke 2 hours before test.

* There are no dietary or medication restrictions on the day of Imaging.

Who interprets my scan and writes report?

The thermographer sends your file electronically to a network of board certified MD thermologists. One of the doctors will interpret your scan, write a report and send it back to your thermographer to forward to you. Your reports are very easy to understand but your thermographer can also recommend local health practitioners should you wish to discuss further.
