Digital thermography

With the advances in modern computer technology, IML and our patients now have economically viable access to a diagnostic modality known as Thermography or Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI).

What is Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging?

Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging is a non-invasive diagnostic test of physiology that has been evolving over the past 20 years.

Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging can provide information about a patient’s response to treatment as well as the effects of injury, disease, or prescribed treatment.

Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging, (DITI), has benefits in many areas of medicine including Woman’s health where DITI provides an adjunctive non-invasive and painless early detection test for breast disease. Healthy women should not be exposed to radiation screening unnecessarily

Breast cancer screening can identify breast cancer before a person notices any physical symptoms. Early detection can enable a person to undergo less invasive treatments with better outcomes.

Thermography uses a type of infrared technology that detects and records temperature changes on the surface of the skin.

It can help screen for breast cancer. A thermal infrared camera takes a picture of the areas of different temperature in the breasts. The camera displays these patterns as a sort of heat map

When a cancerous growth develops, there may be excessive formation of blood vessels and inflammation in the breast tissue. These show up on the infrared image as areas with a higher skin temperature.


IML recommends this method for the following reasons:

  • It is a non-invasive, non-contact procedure that does not involve compressing the breast
  • It does not involve exposure to radiation, and people can use it safely over time
  • It can detect vascular changes in breast tissue that may indicate the presence of breast cancer many years before other methods of screening can
  • It can detect changes in breasts with dense tissue and implants.
  • Hormonal and menstrual changes do not affect the procedure or the results
