What is Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI, Thermography)?

DITI is a SAFE, affordable, non-invasive, no radiation, FDA registered clinical test studying unique thermal patterns and detecting changes in:

•  Breast Health
•  Headache evaluation & TMJ Dysfunction
•  Vascular Health including:
      • Stroke screening
      • Coronary, Arteriosclerosis
      • Deep Vein Thrombosis and Peripheral
•  Pain & Injury to nerve and soft tissue
•  Inflammatory Disease
•  Nerve Entrapment
•  and much more

How is it different from other tests?

Medical DITI's major clinical value is in its high sensitivity to pathology in the vascular, muscular, neural and skeletal systems and as such can contribute to the pathogenesis and diagnosis made by the clinician.

Medical DITI has been used extensively in human medicine in the U.S.A., Europe and Asia for the past 20 years. Until now, cumbersome equipment has hampered its diagnostic and economic viability. Current state of the art PC based IR technology designed specifically for clinical application has changed all this.

Clinical uses for DITI include:

  •  To detect early lesions before they are clinically evident
  •  To localise an abnormal area not previously identified, so further diagnostic tests can be performed
  •  To define the extent of a lesion of which a diagnosis has previously been made
  •  To monitor the healing process before the patient is returned to work or training.


 

Medical DITI is filling the gap in clinical diagnosis ...

  •  X ray, C.T. Ultrasound and M.R.I. etc., are tests of anatomy.
  •  E.M.G. is a test of motor physiology.
  •  DITI is unique in its capability to show physiological change and metabolic processes. It has also proven to be a very useful complementary procedure to other diagnostic modalities.

Unlike most diagnostic modalities DITI is non invasive. It is a very sensitive and reliable means of graphically mapping and displaying skin surface temperature. With DITI you can diagnosis, evaluate, monitor and document a large number of injuries and conditions, including soft tissue injuries and sensory/autonomic nerve fibre dysfunction.

Medical DITI can offer considerable financial savings by avoiding the need for more expensive investigations.

Medical DITI can graphically display the very subjective feeling of pain by objectively displaying the changes in skin surface temperature that accompany pain states.

Medical DITI can show a combined effect of the autonomic nervous system and the vascular system, down to capillary dysfunctions. The effects of these changes show as asymmetry's in temperature distribution on the surface of the body.

Medical DITI is a monitor of thermal abnormalities present in a number of diseases and physical injuries. It is used as an aid for diagnosis and prognosis, as well as therapy follow up and rehabilitation monitoring, within clinical fields that include Rheumatology, neurology, physiotherapy, sports medicine, oncology, pediatrics, orthopedics and many others.

Results obtained with medical DITI systems are totally objective and show excellent correlation with other diagnostic tests.
