What is Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging?

Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging, or DITI, is a totally non-invasive, painless procedure with no radiation and no contact with the body.

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.

DITI can help:

  • To help in determining the cause of pain.
  • To aid in the early detection of disease and pathology.
  • To evaluate sensory-nerve irritation or significant soft-tissue injury.
  • To define a previously diagnosed injury or condition.
  • To identify an abnormal area for further diagnostic testing.
  • To follow progress of healing and rehabilitation.
