What is Thermography? (Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging or DITI)
Thermography is a procedure that detects the subtle physiologic changes that accompany breast pathology, whether it is cancer, fibrocystic disease, an infection, or a vascular disease. It is a valuable procedure for alerting your doctor to changes that can indicate early-stage breast disease.
This quick and easy test starts with your medical history being taken before you partially disrobe for the scan to be performed. The first session provides the baseline of your “thermal signature.” A subsequent session assures that the patterns remain unchanged. All of your breast images are kept on record and once your stable thermal pattern has been established, any changes can be detected during routine annual studies.

Who is the procedure for?
All women can benefit from DITI breast screening. However, it is especially appropriate for younger women (30 – 50) whose denser breast tissue makes it more difficult for mammography to be effective. It is also for women of all ages who, for many reasons, are unable to undergo routine mammography, or choose not to. This test can provide a ‘clinical marker’ to the doctor or mammographer that a specific area of the breast needs particularly close examination.
Thermography is an adjunctive diagnostic test which does not replace other tests such as mammography. But the bottom line is that early detection saves lives.
