Our center uses veterinary grade thermal imaging cameras to identify heat in horses legs, joints or muscles. It is a fast, efficient and accurate way to pick up injuries or swelling in your horses early before too much damage is done.

Since there is a high degree of thermal symmetry in the normal body, subtle abnormal temperature asymmetries can be easily identified. A “hot spot” indicates inflammation or increased circulation. Hot spots generally are seen in the skin directly overlying injury. A “cold spot” is a reduction in blood supply usually due to swelling, thrombosis, scar tissue or increased tone in the nervous system.

  • Detecting early lesions before they are clinically evident
  • Identifying areas not previously identified where further diagnostic tests should be performed
  • Monitoring the healing process before the animal is returned to work or training

Using a systematic approach to taking and interpreting the images, the following common conditions can be easily identified: Muscle Problems, Nerve Injury, Inflammation and Secondary Problems.
