What is Thermography?

Thermography is a non-invasive diagnostic technique that converts infrared radiation emitted from the skin surface into electrical impulses that are visualized in color. The spectrum of colors indicate an increase or decrease in the amount of infrared radiation being emitted from the body surface. Medical Thermography can graphically display and record the subjective feeling of pain by objectively displaying the changes in skin surface temperature that are produced by pain states. Medical Thermography’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 a diagnosis by the clinician.

What are the clinical uses for Thermography/DITI?

Frequently asked questions:

Q. Who certifies your thermographers?
A. Thermography technicians are trained and certified by the American College of Clinical Thermology.

Q. Who reads the images and reports?
A. Images are sent to an interpretation service who employ medical doctors who are all board certified as thermologists by the American College of Clinical Thermology. These doctors have many years experience and are able to ask for second opinions whenever necessary.

Q. How quickly will I get my report back?
A. Reports are normally ready within 48 hours. You may collect your report when it is ready or allow for mailing time. If you need your report within 24 hours you can pay an ‘urgent’ fee.

Q. What is the difference between high definition thermography and other types?
Just about all modern cameras provide high-definition images. The ‘definition’ of a thermogram relates to how many individual temperature measurements are taken to build the image. The actual definition is not as important as how accurate and sensitive those temperature measurements are. The higher the definition, the better the picture will look but this does not mean that the accuracy is any better.
Describing a thermogram as ‘high definition’ maybe confusing and misleading as most so-called high-definition images are produced by software manipulation of the data.
Low definition would be considered below 160 x 120 pixels. Industry standard is between 160 x 120 up to 320 x 240 pixels. High-definition would be considered above this and can be as high as 640 x 512 pixels. The manufacturer of our camera is Meditherm. The Meditherm FDA Manufacturer registration number is: 3006111110. The EC Conformity classification is: MDD Annex IX, Rule 12, Class 1.

Q. Why do I need to come back in three months for another breast study?
A. The most accurate result we can produce is change over time. Before we can start to evaluate any changes, we need to establish an accurate and stable baseline for you. This baseline represents your unique thermal fingerprint, which will only be altered by developing pathology. A baseline cannot be established with only one study, as we would have no way of knowing if this is your normal pattern or if it is actually changing at the time of the first exam. By comparing two studies three months apart we are able to judge if your breast physiology is stable and suitable to be used as your normal baseline and safe for continued annual screening. The reason a three-month interval is used relates to the period of time it takes for blood vessels to show change…… a period of time less than three months may miss significant change…….. a period of time much more than three months can miss significant change that may have already taken place. There is NO substitute for establishing an accurate baseline. A single study cannot do this.

Thermography Exam Basic Procedure

Picture: DCIS (Ductal Carcinoma in Situ)

DITI detects the subtle physiologic changes that accompany breast pathology, whether it is cancer, fibrocystic disease, an infection or a vascular disease. Doctors can then plan accordingly and lay out a careful program to further diagnose and /or MONITOR until other standard testing becomes positive. This allows for the earliest possible treatment.

Patient Preparation:
1. Please do not have Acupuncture, physical therapy, massage, or Chiropractic until after your exam or on another day.
2. Please do not smoke, drink hot/cold beverages or chew gum 2 hours before the test.
3. Please do not use lotions, antiperspirants, liniments or cosmetics on the area that will be imaged on the day of the test.
4. Stay out of strong sunlight or tanning bed for 48 hours before your test.
5. No hot/cold showers or therapies 2 or 3 hours before your exam.
6. No exercising 2 hours before your exam
7. There are no changes to your diet or medications necessary.
