Thermal Imaging from Alignyourspine

Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging, or DITI, is a totally non-invasive, painless procedure with no radiation and no contact with the body.  We offer BREAST SCANS, FULL BODY HALF BODY AND REGIONS OF INTEREST. Our dedicated DITI website can be visited at www.ditiuk.com

It uses an infrared camera with a highly accurate heat sensor to detect differences in temperature in the body. The body’s temperature is displayed graphically in different colours on a screen. Normally, the body’s temperature is symmetrical but abnormalities, injuries and pathologies change the temperature of the surrounding tissue and these differences are clearly visible on the scan. An interesting read on MAMMOGRAPHYS' limitations can be read here http://www.cochrane.dk/screening/mammography-leaflet.pdf

How does it work?

Skin blood flow is under the control of the sympathetic nervous system. In normal people there is a symmetrical pattern across the skin which is consistent and reproducible for any individual.
