**WHAT IS DITI (THERMOGRAPHY)** Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging **‘DITI’** is a 15-minute non-invasive test of physiology. It is a valuable procedure for alerting your doctor to changes that can indicate early stage breast disease. The benefit of **DITI** testing is that it offers the opportunity of earlier detection of breast disease than has been possible through breast self-examination, doctor examination or mammography alone. **DITI** detects the subtle physiological changes that accompany breast pathology, whether it is cancer, fibrocystic disease, an infection, or a vascular disease. Your doctor can then plan accordingly and lay out a careful program to further diagnose and/or MONITOR you during and after any treatment.
**WHO CAN BENEFIT** All women can benefit from **DITI** breast screening. However, it is especially appropriate for younger women (ages 30-50) whose denser breast tissue makes it more difficult for mammography to be effective. It is also appropriate for women of all ages who, for many reasons, are unable to undergo routine mammography. This test can provide a ‘clinical marker’ for the doctor or mammographer that a specific area of the breast needs a particularly close examination
**IMAGING PROCEDURE** This quick and easy test starts with a review of your medical history before you partially disrobe for the scan. This first session provides the baseline of your “thermal signature.” This is a set of 5 scans. Subsequent sessions assure that the patterns remain unchanged. All of your thermograms (breast images) are kept on record. Once your stable thermal pattern is established any changes can be detected during your routine annual studies. All scans are interpreted and reported by certified M.D’s which is very important when choosing your Thermography provider.
