Thermography

Thermography also known as Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI) is a noninvasive, no contact or radiation, clinical imaging procedure showing the thermal abnormalities present in the bodies of children, men and women:

  • 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

 

DITI has been recognized as a viable diagnostic tool since 1987 by the AMA Council on Scientific Affairs, the ACA Council on Diagnostic Imaging, the Congress of Neuro-Surgeons in 1988 and in 1990 by the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. DITI was FDA approved in 1982 and aids in the diagnosis and prognosis, as well as monitoring therapy progress, for conditions and injuries.
