Kayla received her certification in Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI) in 2013. She provides the highest quality thermal imaging presently known.
Kayla is inspired by proactive preventative methods for detecting diseases in humans and animals. Thermography can detect subtle physiologic changes that accompany such as in the early identification of musculoskeletal and neurological injuries, especially non-specific (and difficult to diagnose) lameness.
Kayla has used Thermography to identify muscle strains as well as the effects of saddle fitting, injury, disease or prescribed treatments.. Kayla enjoys using these great modalities with our four legged friends.
Thermal Imaging Application & Benefits
Preparing Your Pet For Thermal Imaging
The horse should equilibrate with ambient conditions for sufficient time to approximate a steady state. The equilibration period should be at least 10-15 minutes. During the equilibration period the horse should remain uncovered with rugs and bandages removed.
The horse owner / trainer may be provided with instructions intended to reduce the likelihood of artifacts or inconclusive thermography.
