Thermal Imaging office now open in Landrum

Thermal Imaging of the Carolinas was opened last week in Landrum by Dr. Lealand Fagan and wife, Michelle.
Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging “DITI” is a 15-minute non-invasive test of physiology. This screening procedure uses a specialized camera to take pictures of your infrared image from any part of your body. According to Dr. Fagan, it is a valuable procedure for alerting your doctor to changes that can indicate any abnormalities.
One big benefit of DITI testing, Dr. Fagan said, is that it offers the opportunity of earlier detection of breast disease than has been possible through breast self-exam, doctor examination or mammography alone.
There is no radiation involved in the procedure, which also is painless because there is no contact with the body. All women can benefit from DITI breast screening, Dr. Fagan said, but it is especially appropriate for younger women ages 30-50 whose denser breast tissue makes it more difficult for mammography to be effective.
Thermal imaging can also be an effective aid for diagnosis and prognosis as well as monitoring therapy progress for conditions and injuries including: back injuries, arthritis, headache, nerve damage, unexplained pain, fibromyalgia, RSD, TMJ, artery inflammation, vascular disease, carpal tunnel syndrome, inflammatory pain, skin cancer and more.
The office is open weekdays, as well as Saturday mornings, at 900 E. Rutherford Street.
The Fagans have both been certified as clinical thermologists and are members of the American College of Clinical Thermography.
