In today’s medico-legal environment, practitioners are under ever-increasing pressure to justify all invasive procedures.
Digital Infrared Thermographic Imaging (DITI) is a non-invasive imaging technique which can add case justification to subsequent investigations or procedures. With thermography, passive infrared technology images thermal variations of 1/1000 of a degree to detect diseases, injuries and other dysfunctions, and to monitor treatment progress safely. DITI is a powerful, well-studied screening technology that offers clinically significant information without side effects.
Like all medical imaging methods, DITI is useful only within certain applicable conditions.
This section provides introductory information and references to help all practitioners gain a better understanding of which patients would benefit from this test and how to integrate the findings into clinical evaluation, diagnosis, monitoring treatment and decision making.
