What is DIT?
Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging ‘DITI’ is a 15 minute, non-invasive test of physiology that can indicate early stage breast disease that has been previously possible only through self examination, doctor examination, or mammography. DITI detects the subtle physiologic 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 programme to further diagnose and/or monitor you during and after any treatment.
“Early Detection Saves Lives”
Painless, Non Intrusive, Radiation Free, No Body Contact
NORMAL – Good thermal symmetry with no suspicious thermal findings. These patterns represent a baseline that won’t alter over time and can only be changed by pathology.
DUCTAL CARCINOMA – The vascular asymmetry in the upper left breast was particularly suspicious and clinical investigation indicated a palpable mass.
