What is Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI)?
DITI is a FDA-approved diagnostic imaging technique that records the thermal patterns of the body. Physiological changes can occur within the body years before a tumor actually forms. By tracking the body from an early stage, we can detect these disturbances and set forth a plan of defense to eliminate the problem before a person’s health is compromised and life put at risk.
The procedure is entirely non-invasive, affordable, painless and involves no radiation. Digital thermography has been used successfully and safely for over a decade to detect physiological disturbances such as:
- Thyroid dysfunction
- Inflammatory cancers

DITI for Breast Imaging
The American Cancer Society panel admits mammography has limitations – some women who are screened will have false alarms, some cancers will be missed and some will undergo unnecessary treatment. Women, especially African American women, are increasingly developing breast cancer in their thirties. The worst thing that can be done is nothing at all. The physicians at Progressive Medical Center recommend that women begin receiving annual thermal imaging screenings around 28 years old to allow for a longer period with which to track any subtle changes in the breast tissue.
How does Thermal Imaging work?
“This is a test of physiology, not anatomy”, Dr Gamba, NMD, explains. A tumor often grows for years before it is detected by a traditional mammogram. DITI screens the breast for disturbances and subtle physiological changes that accompany breast pathology like vascular feeds leading to a tumor in its earliest stages. Dr. Gamba will perform the screening at Progressive Medical Center and an off-site M.D. who is board certified in thermography then examines the scans. If a disturbance is detected, Progressive physicians will lay out a lifestyle and nutrition or sometimes hormone and supplementation plan and continue to further monitor the breasts.
