Veterinary Thermal imaging

Veterinary thermal imaging fills a gap in clinical assessment tools.
It shows the animal's physiological state by graphically mapping skin surface temperature in response to changes in blood flow.
In healthy animals, the thermal pattern on the skin is usually symmetrical.

 

Anatomical imaging, such as x-ray, lacks specificity and fails in the ability to see soft tissue conditions. Physiological imaging, such as digital thermal imaging has the ability to not only see tissue conditions but can also recognize areas that are indicative to anatomical issues.
 

Since animals can't speak, it has been difficult for caretakers, trainers, and veterinarians to truly identify hidden or masked conditions.
Now with thermal imaging, many of these physiological and anatomical issues are exposed at a much earlier stage.
Early detection = early prevention.

• Check for a poor or well fitted saddle

Prevention & Underlying Issues

in foot

 

• Hot foot due to infection or bruising

• Locating area of abscess or bruising
