Rachel Mazzarelli, MS, CCT, a certified clinical thermographer and the owner of Whole Health Thermography LLC, will talk about what digital infrared thermal imaging (DITI), thermography and thermograms are. She will provide answers as to why DITI is a beneficial test to help monitor breast and overall health. The difference between mammograms, ultrasounds and thermography will also be covered in the workshop. A Q&A will follow as well.
DITI is a 15-minute non-invasive test of physiology with no compression or radiation. By noting changes in the skin’s surface temperatures, thermograms can be used as an aid to note changes that can indicate early stage breast disease, and for monitoring therapy progress for conditions and injuries.
Mazzarelli is also a certified Kripalu yoga teacher with a master’s degree in clinical nutrition from the University of Bridgeport.
