Thermal Imaging for Your Dog

Find the Answers in Living Color

Thermal Imaging is an effective, safe, economical tool for diagnosing areas of inflammation or injury. It also gives special insights into soft tissue inflammation that is occurring as a result of compensating for a primary injury. In addition, thermal imaging is an excellent tool for monitoring the healing progress of soft tissue or joint.

Conditions diagnosed with thermal imaging:

  • Joint inflammation
  • Muscle tears
  • Tendon/ligament injury
  • Nerve injuries
  • Toe injuries

Thermal imaging utilizes a specialized camera that converts emitted heat or infrared waves into a picture visible to the human eye. Thermal Imaging is a physiologic imaging tool. This means it tell us what is going on right now in terms of changes in blood flow. When an animal has inflammation or injury to an area, changes in blood flow occur. These are seen as changes of color on the image of that area.
