How does Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging 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. Our DITI scanner records this temperature pattern at a sensitivity of 0.01°C. The pattern is represented graphically by different colours on your thermograph or image.

Injuries, pathologies and tumours show up as ‘hot’ areas (or sometimes abnormally cold areas) in comparison to your normal temperature pattern. Vascular conditions such as Raynauds, Vasculitis, Limb Ischemia, Deep Vein Thrombosis also show up on DITI scans.
