All women can benefit from DITI breast screening. However, it is especially appropriate for younger women (30 – 50) whose denser breast tissue makes it more difficult for mammography to be effective. Also for women of all ages who, for many reasons, are unable to undergo routine mammography. This test can provide a ‘clinical marker’ to the doctor or mammographer that a specific area of the breast needs particularly close examination.
It takes years for a tumor to grow thus the earliest possible indication of abnormality is needed to allow for the earliest possible treatment and intervention. DITI’s role in monitoring breast health is to help in early detection and monitoring of abnormal physiology.
Mat-Su Skin Deep provides woman-to-woman thermographic breast screening in the state of Alaska.
Our breast screenings
are done by
Normal – Good thermal symmetry with no suspicious thermal findings. These patterns represent a baseline that won’t alter over time and can only be changed by pathology.
Thermography during pregnancy shows changes in the breasts due to hormones.
Thermal image showing how hormonal changes can affect breasts.
Mastitis is often painful inflammation of breast tissue that sometimes involves an infection.
Fibrocystic changes in the breast: painful, lumpy breasts.
Thermal image of a fibrocystic breast.
Fibrocystic – Significant vascular activity in the left breast which was clinically correlated with fibrocystic changes.
Inflammatory Carcinoma – breast cancer.
DCIS – breast cancer – greyscale
DCIS – breast cancer – color thermogram
One percent of breast cancers are found in men. The survival rate is much lower than in women as most breast cancers in men are only detected in advanced stages.
