THERMOGRAPHY - INFRARED IMAGING
Prevention is better than cure. We will take full body images to provide a comprehensive picture with accurate information via thermal indicators. Thermography detects festering injuries before the horse is lame. This means you can prolong his career and have a comprehensive overview of his condition.
Horses who are in rehabilitation can use thermography to monitor the inflammation with exact temperature readings and track heat patterns. This will help you decide when to increase the work load or back off during rehabilitation. Thermography equips you with tangible information to manage your horses' rehabilitation progamme effectively and efficiently.
With thermal imaging, we can detect ligament and tendon injuries up to 3 weeks before the horse displays signs of lameness and up to 6 weeks before for joint problems.
Benefits are early detection of festering injuries before the horse progresses to lameness.
We recommend doing a full body scan every month to detect mild injuries before they cause further more serious damage.
Thermography helps you manage your horses's rehabilitation programme. Thermal indicators give tangible information, helping you decide when to start training, when to increase the workload or if necessary when to back off. Equipping you to manage the programme as efficiently as possible.
We recommend weekly monitoring as the rehabilitation progresses - this way we can manage the programme as accurately and effectively as possible.
Infrared Imaging is a non-invasive, safe tool which measures surface temperature changes that are indicative of inflammation and/or loss of blood supply.
Thermal indicators assist in zooming into the area of interest comprehensively, this means we take images of the whole body from a overall perspective.
We analyze thermal patterns and record the exact temperatures to assess your horse qualitatively and quantitively.
An inflammatory response can be triggered by several reasons. However the most common cause is tissue damage. The inflammatory cascade starts when the body is in need to repair itself - presenting as hot spots in thermal imaging with an increase in thermal pattern.
Regular scanning of the region help monitor the situation and inform vets and owners the progress of the inflammation.
A baseline is an important aspect of thermography in order to have accurate information in tracking changes at the injury site.
