"What is Thermal Imaging?"

Thermal imaging maps surface heat patterns of the horse's body with a non-contacting camera

It can help locate areas with changes in blood flow, which may indicate injury.

Symmetrical thermal patterns are normal. Hot or cold asymmetries can be abnormal.

Thermography is used with veterinary exam & other imaging tools.
