We offer thermography imaging technology, DITI, a state-of-the-art diagnostic technique, at our functional medicine clinic near Milwaukee. Thermography relies on DITI, or digital infrared thermal imaging. DITI detects subtle changes in the skin’s surface temperature. The technology creates a color map that reflects the skin’s temperature differences.
Thermography imaging technology, DITI, indicates physiological changes
The practitioners at our functional medicine clinic near Milwaukee employ thermography imaging technology, DITI, to look for areas of asymmetry in the body. When the body is healthy, the thermogram will be primarily symmetrical. If significant asymmetry is present, the practitioner knows that area of the body may contain one of several problems.
- Congestion in the lymphatic system
- Vascular conditions, such as Raynaud’s disease
Breast thermography detects subtle changes in breast tissue
Breast thermography is an excellent screening tool that women can add to their annual mammograms. Thermography imaging technology, DITI, has two distinct advantages over other breast cancer screening tools because it is noninvasive and it does not emit any radiation.
The procedure lasts about fifteen minutes, and no equipment touches the breast. Digital infrared thermal imaging sensitivity is effective at detecting potential problem areas in breast tissue that may indicate malignancy in the early stages.
Sports medicine thermography helps diagnose injuries and assess progress
People who incur an acute or chronic sports injury benefit from a thermogram. The procedure helps our practitioners confirm the diagnosis of an injury or chronic problem. Thermography imaging technology, DITI, can also help the staff at our functional medicine clinic near Milwaukee clinically assess a patient’s progress and treatment response.
Full body imaging is an excellent tool for detecting inflammation
When a patient has a condition that is difficult to diagnose, our practitioners are often asked to provide a second opinion. Thermography is one of the techniques we use to find undetected problems that may be making a patient feel ill. For example, our staff may begin their detective work by employing thermography imaging technology, DITI, to detect inflammation. Inflammation is one way the body responds to different stimuli, such as bacteria, viruses or injury. Severe inflammation can cause a patient to feel very ill and fatigued.
