Routine breast screening:
The standard recommendation is that all women should begin annual breast screening at age 40. With recent statistics indicating that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime, early detection is critical. Thermal imaging is a "do no harm" method of breast screening and is safe for all women. It is recommended for women to begin annual thermal imaging as early as age 25, especially if there is a family history of breast cancer.
Baseline breast screening:
Every woman has a unique thermal heat pattern - it is as unique as a fingerprint. The first scan provides the baseline of your unique "thermal signature". Because thermal imaging looks for change over time, it is essential that a stable baseline be established within a 3-4 month period following the first scan. This subsequent session assures that the thermal patterns remain unchanged. Once a stable baseline is established, it will be used for comparisons to all future scans so that the most subtle of tissue changes can be identified.
Urgent breast screening:
As we all know, early detection is critical and can make the difference between a complete recovery and a shortened lifetime. If you have a breast concern and need urgent screening, we will make you a priority. Please let our staff know when making your appointment and we will schedule you as soon as possible. To receive your results within 48 hours, rush service is available for an additional fee.
While our primary focus is on breast screening, thermal imaging is an effective screening method for other areas of the body. Upon request, we also provide a variety of other scan types and regions of interest depending on your health concern. Please contact our office for additional information.
"It was almost 3 years ago that I heard of THERMOGRAPHY at a health conference in Austin, TX. Having lost all confidence in mammography and ultrasounds (which did not detect my Stage IIIB Cancer in 1992) and being concerned about more exposure to radiation after years of monitoring breasts and bones...I was excited to learn that there was a choice when it comes to monitoring breasts. When I asked my oncologist about thermography, she referred me to DITI Imaging and its owner (also a breast cancer survivor). I am delighted to report that not only am I more confident that my left breast and right chest wall (from mastectomy) are being monitored without unnecessary radiation exposure, but have the added benefit of no more painful smashing of the breast! My oncologist is very supportive of this FDA approved method and has commented how much more information on the chest and breast is reported on the comprehensive report and thermal image she receives from DITI Imaging's thermography report. I highly recommend the use of thermography to monitor breast health and I am confident that ANY changes will be found much sooner and more safely than any other testing method now available."
"I have fibrocystic breast disease and it was so nice to finally have a healthy screening option that did not push, pinch, or radiate my body. I felt the quality of care and the customer service is great. I no longer dread (or postpone) my annual screenings. The "no touching" makes me happy and I love that this technology is able to identify problems earlier than a mammogram. I highly recommend it."
"I found DITI Imaging two years ago after I researched alternate, safe ways of breast scanning. I wanted to get away from small amounts of radiation and find more reliable ways. Also, I have a breast implant and fibrocystic disease and regular mammograms to my knowledge do not catch leaks in implants that well. DITI Imaging is a very easy, comfortable and safe way to get my breast scan done yearly. It is quick and painless. I am pleased with the final report that is sent to my home and doctor. It is easy to read and very reliable. Thank you DITI Imaging!"
"Sometimes I just sits! Often times however, I am aware just how complex yet interesting life is, and my strong desire to be well so that I will enjoy many more birthdays. Three years ago I made the decision to include an annual thermogram in my health regime.....it was like finding another piece of the puzzle!"
