Medical Thermal Imaging, also known as, Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging
(D.I.T.T), or Thermography, is a non-invasive clinical imaging technique for
detecting and monitoring a number of diseases and physical injuries by showing
any thermal abnormalities present in the body. Thermography uses special
infrared-sensitive cameras to digitally record images of the variations in
surface temperature of the human body. The recorded images are calling
thermograms. These thermograms are then analyzed by a medical doctor who will
give diagnosis/prognosis based on the images.
thermal imaging, or Thermography, serve as an alternative to Mammography?
the FDA has approved Thermography as a safe, non-invasive screening technique
for breast cancer. There is no touching or compression of the breast during the
exam, which only takes minutes to complete. It can also detect signs of cancer
up to 10 years earlier without the exposure to X-Ray which is reported to
actually increase the risk of cancer.
Can I have a Thermal
Breast Evaluation if I’ve had breast surgery (lumpectomy, mastectomy, breast
Yes. Regardless of previous surgery to the breast tissue, your Thermal Imaging
can be performed safely and accurately. In fact, mammography’s effectiveness is
limited after such surgeries. There are guidelines as to when the Thermal
Evaluation should be performed in relation to surgery.
Is this Procedure covered
by Medical Aid?
Not yet, but we are in a process of negotiations.
