Many equine enthusiasts and horse owners often find themselves with issues that plague the wellness of their horses. Many often experience problems with horse injury including suspensory injuries and laminitis or lameness in horses. Often, these problems may go undiagnosed or even worse they can be misdiagnosed. Many owners continue to look for solutions for diagnosis so that they can design the proper treatment protocol for rehabilitating their horses.
Many horse owners are now exploring the ability to use thermography technology to aid in the diagnosis and design of a treatment protocol for rehabilitating their horses or utilize the service for horse lameness exams. Thermography utilizes highly sensitive infrared thermographic imagers to image the body of the horse to look for temperature patterns across the surface of the horse. These temperature patterns can be indicative of possible conditions including horse tendon injuries, horse hock injuries, or lameness in horses. These are just a sampling of the potential injuries which may be revealed through thermographic imaging of the horse. The images are reviewed for anomalies in the images indicated by extremes in the temperature patterns.
The use of thermographic imaging technology is gaining acceptance as a tool for owners and veterinarians to be able to analyze the horses for possible causes of their conditions as well as looking for other latent issues which have yet to manifest themselves into an injury. Quality thermographic services do not offer review, diagnosis or interpretation of the results of the infrared scan, but instead pass these images to a qualified veterinarian who in turn interprets the results and offers professional advice on the treatment of the conditions that are diagnosed.
RAM Infrared Scanning Services (http://www.equine-infrared.com) provides imaging services through the United Infrared Inc. and EquineIR network. A trained and licensed veterinarian through the network provides interpretation of the images which are provided independently of RAM Infrared Scanning Services. Certified and trained infrared thermographers employed by RAM Infrared Scanning Services complete these scans. The results are returned from the veterinarian to the owner through RAM Infrared Scanning Services without editing.
