Thermal imaging, FDA approved in 1982, is an unsurpassed, safe and noninvasive cancer/disease screening technique that can detect signs of breast cancer up to ten years earlier than is possible using mammography. Inflammation and other conditions can immediately be detected as well such as periodontal disease or infection that may go unnoticed by x-ray which is incredibly important to detect early when it comes to heart health and breast health.
Clinical Thermography is a simple test of physiology that relies on the sympathetic nerve control of skin blood flow and the ability of the sympathetic nervous system to respond to and react to pain, pathology, injury or dysfunction anywhere in the body. While other diagnostics such as ultrasound, radiography and mammography show the body’s structure or anatomy, DITI (digital infrared thermal imaging) is unique in that it shows physiological and metabolic processes
Thermography is used for detecting and monitoring many conditions including:
- Breast Issues (fibrocystic conditions, mastitis, & lymph congestion)
- Artery Conditions(stroke potential or inflammation, for example)
- Vein Conditions (deep vein thrombosis, for example)
- Pre-Diabetic Screening
- Dental/Periodontal (even before your dentist can detect)
- Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Chronic Immune Deficiency
- Inflammatory Pain
- Carpal Tunnel
- Nerve Damage
- Sports Injuries
…and much more!
Linda Hayes, Certified Clinical Thermographer, has been using thermal imaging for early disease detection for the past 20 years. Thermal imaging has been able to help in the early detection of inflammatory breast cancer which frequently affects women between the ages of 20 and 40. Thermal imaging can screen for the earliest stages of cancer in ALL women, all age groups, and is often preferred to mammograms since this technology has NO RADIATION and NO BODY CONTACT, and is done in a matter of minutes while you wait. It is currently recognized as one of the earliest methods of screening for breast disease. The American Heart Association suggests thermal imaging as an initial screening for heart disease.
“What I want to share with you now may surprise you or it may make you angry but you’ll thank God for what I have to tell you, because it may very well save your life and the lives of your loved ones.
The reality is ALL women face the threat of breast cancer. Current statistics show that one-in-eight American women will be diagnosed with the disease in her lifetime.
For over thirty years we have been told that an annual mammography examination is the key to long-term survival from breast cancer. Yet, after thirty years there has been no significant improvement in mortality.”

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)
What are the benefits of Thermal Imaging?
- Thermography is a non-invasive diagnostic tool with scientifically valid, reproducible results.
- Thermography is an FDA approved adjunctive diagnostic device so the results can be trusted.
- Thermography can detect dysfunction even when conventional blood tests and radiographic tests were negative.
Does insurance cover thermal imaging?
All insurance carriers are different. Currently De Novo Scan does not accept insurance, however we provide you with a Superbill for you to submit to your insurance company.
Why get tested with thermal imaging?
- Thermal imaging has been an available medical test for more than 50 years, and its nonmedical applications pre-date that by a decade.
- Despite controversy in its early days, this tool has withstood the test of time and has become the mainstay in many diagnostic endeavors. The technology in modern day thermography as well as properly training technicians has improved tremendously over the years.
- With the increasing technological advances of thermal imaging cameras and the newest and best software available, WHY NOT BE TESTED WITH THERMOGRAPHY?
- It locates dysfunction with precision going right to the source of heat increased blood supply and enables your doctor to develop a more exact treatment plan. Clearly shows future disease tendencies of those in the process of development.
How does thermal imaging work?
- Thermography registers skin-surface temperature from 112 different points on the body.
- Thermography displays an image yielding a scan of 25 organs, tissues, or systems and their function.
- While X-rays give a structural view, thermography gives us a functional perspective based on physiology and cold stress response.
- By computer analysis of the skin temperature patterns, the doctor gains a direct index of the metabolic activity in various parts of the body.
- The thermography scan will also show inflamed, degenerated, or overactive organ or tissue processes.
Who should be tested with thermal imaging?
There is no one who shouldn’t be tested. It is a safe procedure for people of all ages. Thermography offers reproducible and scientifically valid information that can be crucial to the development and tracking of a successful treatment strategy.
