Thermal Imaging Application & Benefits

Thermography emits no radiation and can be repeated as frequently as needed and may eliminate other expensive investigation tools. By providing a visual management tool for monitoring or treating injury, illness or disease, you as owners or professionals have a valuable addition to the existing diagnostic tools such as X-rays MRI scans ultrasounds now being offered by your Vet.

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.
