MetroWest Thermal Imaging – Proactive Screening

Metrowest Thermal Imaging 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.

(MTI) is owned and operated by Susan Saari, a licensed acupuncturist, Chinese herbalist and certified thermographer who brings more than 30 years of  experience in health care and health education to her patients.  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, and she uses the highest quality digital thermal imaging camera available. 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  in a caring, respectful and compassionate manner.

Sue Saari comes to the Gentle Place on a quarterly basis.  You can reach out to her directly to book your appointment by emailing her at
