Thermography is a safe, no contact, adjunctive test for breast evaluation. It offers the opportunity to be proactive in breast health and is particularly beneficial for younger women whose dense breast tissue makes it difficult for mammography to pick up suspicious lesions.
Prevention is still the best medicine
The journey from health to disease is a continuum along which many points could be identified. Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI), also referred to as thermography, can detect subtle physiological changes that may precede or accompany pathology. It is complementary to standard anatomical tests and can provide information that no other test can provide as affordably or as safely.
Thermography is gaining in popularity for good reason. Prevention is making a comeback! Health conscious individuals want to take advantage of the earliest opportunity to learn about metabolic changes that may contribute to future problems.
Thermal imaging is also a very useful "biofeedback" tool that can help patients recognize patterns of overuse in daily activities that may be contributing to chronic pain or injury.
