Thermography is described in part by the FDA as
“an adjunctive diagnostic screening for breast cancer and other uses.”
Fibrocystic breast disease / disorder is an indication of thermal chaos most often caused by poor hormone balance, especially estrogen dominance. This syndrome needs to be addressed and reversed when detected. Often a comprehensive hormone panel is warranted to rule in/out “estrogen dominance” as it is your greatest risk factor for breast cancer.
Dental with cardiac (male) The skin has specific regions that, through the autonomic system, relate to every internal organ and structure. This patient with a hypothermic asymmetry over the left lower chest has a history of Coronary Artery Disease.
He also has an abscess at the upper left tooth.
This elderly lady had undergone a left hip replacement surgery 3 months previously and her continued leg pain raised a suspicion for DVT. The thermographic findings were not consistent with DVT, but showed a focal area of inflammation that guided a sonographer to a deep abscess near the bone. This was lanced and successfully treated with antibiotics.
Monitoring the Effects of Therapy
Despite thyroid supplementation, thermal imaging indicated evidence of continued thyroid dysfunction. Medical DITI is beneficial in the clinical diagnosis as well as in monitoring the response to treatment. The patient and physician are then able to visualize improvements related to the efficacy of therapy and make appropriate recommendations henceforth.
What is D.I.T.I & FAQ’s
What is medical digital infrared thermal imaging? Medical DITI is a painless, non-invasive, radiation-free test used to detect abnormal physiology. It is the best screening technology for showing inflammation in the body. Chronic inflammation is proven to be at the root of many common diseases that can impact health in various regions of the body.
