Metrowest Thermal Imaging: Thermography, Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine

Metrowest Thermal Imaging (MTI) is owned and operated by Susan Saari, a licensed acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist and certified thermographer, and Matthew Robinson, licensed acupuncturist and shiatsu practitioner. Bringing more than 30 years of combined experience in health care and health education to their clients, MTI aims to work with clients and their practitioners to prevent disease and create vibrant, sustainable health and well-being.

MTI offers digital infrared thermal imaging (DITI), a proactive screening tool that helps people detect early changes in their physiology and track the efficacy of their treatment choices, without any radiation, compression or pain. This non-invasive diagnostic technique allows examiners to visualize and quantify changes in skin surface temperature. Since there is a high degree of thermal symmetry in a normal body, subtle abnormal temperature asymmetries can be easily identified, thereby making it easier to diagnose, evaluate, monitor and document a large number of injuries and conditions, including soft tissue injuries and sensory/autonomic nerve fiber dysfunction.

According to Saari, early detection allows practitioners to look for the root cause, treat the underlying disturbance and restore balance. “Good health requires one to be proactive,” she says. Saari receives ongoing advanced training from Pam Ryerse, one of the teachers with the most extensive experience in clinical thermography in the country. Using the highest quality digital thermal imaging camera available, licensed medical practitioners take scans at one of four MTI locations between Boston and Worcester. These scans are then read, interpreted and reports compiled by board-certified medical doctors. 

Thermography services include breast screening, region of interest screening, and half- and full-body scans. MTI also offers integrative wellness services, acupuncture and herbal medicine in a caring, respectful and compassionate manner.

“We believe in true health care. Health is more than merely the absence of disease—it is a total state of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social well-being.” Susan Saari
