Digital Infrared thermal imaging, or DITI, is a totally non-invasive, painless procedure with no radiation and no contact with the body. DITI is a clinical imaging technique that records the thermal patterns of your body. Your thermal images are used by your healthcare practitioner to help diagnose and monitor pain or pathology in any part of your body.
To help in determining the cause of pain. -To aid in the early detection of disease and pathology -To evaluate sensory-nerve irritation or significant soft-tissue injury -To define a previously diagnosed injury or condition -To identify an abnormal area for further diagnostic testing -To follow progress of healing and rehabilitation.
Thermal images are taken of the whole body, or individual regions including breast thermography, head, arm, leg, torso, etc. A lumbar assessment would typically include, low back, pelvis, and legs. A cervical assessment would typically include, head and neck, upper trunk, and arms. Neurological testing can include a “cold stress test”; this involves placing a hand or foot into a bowl of cool water, or having a cool gel pad applied to any part of the body prior to scanning.
