This diagnostic imaging tool is an infrared camera that can detect heat variation with a high degree of accuracy. These images can be used to localize areas of inflammation in the horse’s body commonly in the joints, tendons, back and hooves. The heat generated between the saddle and the horses’s back during exercise can also be evaluated to assist in saddle fit. Thermography is an excellent supplemental diagnostic tool because it is non invasive and it is very easy to use.
