Non-Invasive Full Body Imaging and Regions of Interest

EARLY DETECTION CAN SAVE LIVES

BREAST HEALTH is Every Woman’s ‘Right’ and Every Woman’s ‘Responsibility’

Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging [D.I.T.I] May Improve Early Detection of Breast Disease

WHAT IS DIGITAL INFRARED THERMAL IMAGING [D.I.T.I]?

D.I.T.I is a 15-minute non-invasive clinical imaging procedure for detecting and monitoring a number of diseases and physical injuries, by showing the thermal abnormalities present in the body.

It is used as an aid for diagnosis and prognosis, as well as monitoring therapy progress, within many clinical fields, including:

  • Neurology
  • Rheumatology
  • Oncology
  • Chiropractic
  • Physiotherapy
  • Sports Medicine
  • Dentistry
  • Paediatrics
  • Breast Health
  • Orthopaedics

D.I.T.I is a valuable procedure for alerting your doctor to changes that can indicate early stage breast disease.

D.I.T.I detects the subtle physiologic changes that accompany breast pathology, whether it is cancer, fibrocystic disease, an infection or a vascular disease. Your doctor can then plan accordingly and lay out a careful program to further diagnose and/or MONITOR you during and after any treatment.

For further information

Read the book “Mammography Screening – Truth, Lies and Controversy”, by Peter C. Gotzsche (ISBN-13 9781846195853). Peter is a Professor of Clinical Research, Design and Analysis – and a Director – at the Nordic Cochrane Centre. He is also the Chief Physician at Rigs Hospitalet and the University of Copenhagen.

This quick and easy test starts with your medical history being taken before you partially disrobe for the scanning to be preformed. This first session provides the baseline of your ‘thermal signature’. A subsequent session assures that the patterns remain unchanged.breastimaging

All of your thermograms (breast images) are kept on records and once your stable thermal pattern has been established any changes can be detected during your routine annual studies.

All women can benefit from D.I.T.I 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.

Breast cancers tend to grow significantly faster in younger women under 50:

AGE AVERAGE TUMOUR DOUBLING TIME
Under 50 80 days
Age 50-70 157 days
Over age 70 188 days

*Source: Cancer 71:3547-3551, 1993

It takes years for a tumour to grown thus the earliest possible indication of abnormality is needed to allow for the earliest possible treatment and intervention. D.I.T.I’s role in monitoring breast health is to help in early detection and monitoring of abnormal physiology.

The interpretations are reported quickly by Medical Practitioners or thermologists and returned to you including all colour images taken during your test.

Diathermy & Electrolysis

Electrolysis

Still the best and only medically approved permanent treatment available for white hair, very pale red or blonde hair.

Sue’s treatments are quick and gentle and a topical anaesthetic is applied if needed.

Electrolysis was introduced to meet the demand for a reliable, safe and practical method of applying epilation – the permanent removal or unwanted hair. This can only be achieved by – quite literally, getting to the root of the trouble; by electrolysis, which remains the only medically approved method of epilation.

Progressive, steady, permanent, medically approved hair removal using sealed hygienic insulated probe (the most gentle available).

Up to 10 minutes $50.00
15 minutes $60.00
20 minutes $70.00
30 minutes plus on application

Diathermy

Diathermy is available for the following clinical conditions:

  • Skin Tags (neck, underarm, under-bust or other areas)
  • Campbell De Morgan spots
  • Facial Capillaries (red veins)

Treatment and advice by Sue, an internationally trained operator.

High Frequency

Kills bacteria, calms skin and helps control skin eruptions, or redness after electrolysis, accelerating healing and improving circulation.
Included in the electrolysis session, or a minimum charge of $25.00.

COMPRESSION HALF STOCKINGS

We fit and sell Venosan hose and stockings to help guard against DVT. Used for long journeys by rail car or bus and plane; or just for leg support and immense comfort. I find them cooler in Summer and warm in Winter.

Please make an appointment for fitting and for all our other services.

Sadly you will not be able to claim through a Health Fund with our Medi-Pedicure service as it’s not a full Podiatry service. Neither do we apply nail polish as this is generally detrimental to the nails; but we trust your feet and nails will enjoy the pampering and practical experience and we’ll help you put those socks back on too!

Come and visit our clinic at 40 Poath Rd or ring for an appointment.

We’re usually closed Wednesdays and always Sundays, so that leaves all the other days from approximately 8.30 till approximately 2.30.

Please ring and leave a clear message. We always return the calls within 24 hours, if not sooner
