Thermal Imaging

Very early Breast Screening and injury monitoring

The body produces heat which must be lost to the environment. The interface between this heat production and the environment is the skin so the body depends on heat transfer from the skin to regulate its temperature. The skin is a dynamic organ which is under the control of the sympathetic nervous system and is constantly adjusting to balance internal and external temperature conditions. Thermal imaging is the most efficient technique for the study of skin temperature distribution. By measuring bi-lateral anatomical sites and identifying significant changes, thermal imaging is a non-invasive diagnostic modality. Thermal Imaging is particularly useful for the monitoring of treatment, whether surgical, physical or pharmacologic.


Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging

Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging is growing in popularity as an alternative that complements other breast screening options. No other screening procedure offers what breast thermography can provide: the earliest known detection, individualized risk assessment, under the age of 40 screening, and perhaps a significant role in breast cancer prevention. Breast cancers are particularly aggressive in younger women. Statistics indicate that 15% of all breast cancers occur between the ages of 20 and 44.

However, there are no guidelines for the use of sensitive detection imaging during these years. With the addition of Digital Infrared Imaging (breast thermography), women in this age group have a sensitive procedure that they can add to their regular breast health checkups.

Why choose Thermography?

IMT - Infrared Medical Thermography also known as DITI Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging

IMT is a safe, painless, non-invasive and radiation free test. It accurately measures and monitors the body's heat emissions. IMT can assist with the finding, diagnosis and monitoring of treatment and healing in various conditions.

IMT is successfully used in Europe and North America for breast screening, pain assessment and many other medical conditions. We like this service because it can detect problems under the arms and all over the soft tissue area of the body.

Carpal tunnel syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most common of the peripheral entrapment neuropathies. The diagnosis of CTS is usually based on clinical history, physical examination and electro diagnostic studies. Thermography is of value in the clinical diagnosis of CTS.
The dorsal and palmar views of both hands are imaged. The dorsal portions of the thumb, index finger, and long finger of each hand were measured from the metacarpophalangeal joint to the fingertip for the entire width of each finger. The same area of the palmar region of each hand was also measured. The thenar area is defined by the following four landmarks: (1) the apex of the first web space; (2) the midpoint of the wrist; (3) the lateral point where the hand meets the forearm; and (4) the lateral point at the base of the thumb.

Breast Screening

Thermal Imaging is the earliest screening for finding potential problems in breasts, especially young and small breasts that can not be screened safely other ways.

Tennis elbow

Tennis elbow is a common painful condition of the lateral elbow with localized epicondylar tenderness and a tendency to recur. The pathogenesis in most cases is now believed to involve a micro tear at the origin of the extensor carpi radialis brevis accompanied by inflammatory granulation tissue. Infrared thermography supports an inflammatory, vascular pathogenesis with a characteristic hot focus over the lateral epicondyle.
