Early Detection & Assessment – Lameness, Injury & Disease
Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI) is an advanced and clinically proven technology used for early detection and accurate assessment of hard to diagnose animal lameness, injury or disease cases. DITI can often detect injuries or disease before their clinical manifestation, because it looks for functional changes and physiological abnormalities by measuring subtle changes in the animal’s metabolic heat.
Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI) is an ideal solution for preventative care purposes because it is mobile, non-invasive, clinically accurate, frequently repeatable, expedient and easy to use.
Treatment and Recovery Monitoring
Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging provides accurate information about the effects of your animal’s injury or disease and its response to the prescribed treatment, rehabilitation or training protocol. It is a cost-effective way of making sure your animal is healing properly by monitoring the rehabilitation and recovery process which mitigates the risks of re-injury.
Regularly scheduled screening during rehabilitation and recovery can determine when your animal is ready to safely return to work or competition and achieve optimal performance.
Pre-Purchase & Pre-Sale Examinations
Buying an animal, be it a horse, dog or livestock is usually a significant investment. The decision to buy should be made after considerations about health, finances and personal preferences are closely scrutinized and reconciled.
Saddle Fitting and Back Issues
Your horse’s back health and optimal performance are closely related. Badly fitted saddles, cloths and pads can lead to back pain and cause the horse to be off or exhibit unusual behavior.
Digital Thermal Infrared Imaging is FDA approved for medical and veterinary applications. Veterinary Thermography Interpretation Reports are prepared by Doctors of Veterinary Medicine that are specially trained and Board Certified Veterinary Thermologists. These reports are intended for use by trained health providers to assist in evaluation, diagnosis and treatment. However, these reports are not intended for evaluation and diagnosis by untrained individuals.
