Early detection saves lives. DITI is a proactive approach to breast health. The benefit of DITI testing is that it offers the opportunity of earlier detection of breast disease than is possible through self examination, doctor examination or mammography alone. Increase your chances of detecting breast cancer in its earliest stage.
DITI's key role in breast cancer and other breast disorders is to aid in the early detection and monitoring of abnormal physiology. Along with the establishment of risk factors for the development or existence of cancer. DITI detects the subtle physiological changes that accompany breast pathology whether it is cancer, fibrocystic disease, vascular disease or infection. You and your doctor can then plan accordingly and layout a careful program to pursue further diagnostic testing and/or monitor you during and after treatment. The imaging procedure is painless, 100% non invasive, and emits zero radiation.
Active Cancer Cells Double in Number every 90 days
90 days——–2 cells
1 year———16 cells - detectable by thermography at this stage
2 years——–256 cells
3 years——-4,896 cells
4 years——-65,536 cells
5 years——1,048,576 cells - still undetectable by mammography at this stage
6 years——16,777,216 cells
7 years—–268,435,456 cells
8 years——4,294,967 cells - 32 doublings normally detected by mammography at this stage
40 Doublings (Approximately 10 years) is considered lethal
It takes years for a tumor to grow. Therefore, the earliest possible indication of abnormality is needed to allow for the earliest possible treatment and prevention.
All women can benefit from DITI breast screening. It is especially appropriate for younger women, ages 30-50 whose denser breast tissue makes it difficult for mammography to be effective. It is also beneficial for woman 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 TUMOR DOUBLING TIME|
|Under 50||80 days|
|Age 50 – 70||157 days|
|Over age 70||188 day|

When DITI is used in conjunction with a multi-modality approach, breast self exam, routine breast exams with your practitioner and mammography, the best possible evaluation of breast health is made.
