Use of Thermography for Functional Evaluation of Stallion Scrotum and Testes

J L Lloyd-Jones, Lic Ac,   R C Purohit DVM PhD, DACT,               M Boyle MA VetMB MRCVS,   C Shepherd BVSc MRCVS

This paper explores the use of thermography to identify anJEVS Publicationd evaluate the normal optimum temperature range of the SST (scrotal surface temperature).

It found that any subtle variation to this ‘norm’ would appear to impact on the Motility Score given to subsequently collected semen.

Motility Scores are an important means to evaluate a semen collection and are used to determine it’s probable long term viability, particularly if the semen is to be frozen.

The research concluded Thermography could provide an ideal, non-invasive means to identify subtle changes in the ‘optimum temperature range’ and, if these anomalies persist,  provide an early indication that further veterinary investigation may be appropriate.

Those born in 1919, 1931, 1943, 1967, 1979, 1991 or 2003 are goats, who can count their lucky colours as brown, red and purple.

People born in the Year of Goat are tender, polite, filial, clever, and kind-hearted. They have special sensitivity to art and beauty and a special fondness for quiet living. They are wise, gentle and compassionate and can cope with business cautiously and circumspectly. In their daily life, they try to be economical. They are willing to take good care of others, but they should avoid pessimism and hesitation.

“Light in Life

Through photosynthesis, light is at the origin of all life. Photonic technologies provide new tools for doctors and surgeons, new developments in optometry and vision science improve quality of life, and light-based technologies are used every day in medical diagnostics in ways that we are often unaware of. This page will contain links to resources that will allow you to understand how light science and light technologies impact on medicine, vision and life sciences in general”

Medical Thermography

The Lightworks Clinic is delighted to announce the introduction of Full Body Medical Thermographic Reporting.

How can Medical Thermography help  …                                                       Thermography is a non-contact means by which vascular, neural and functional assessments can be made  –  giving doctors, consultants, physios and multi-disciplinary therapists a clearer ‘picture’ of underlying issues that may be the cause of prolonged or unexplained symptoms  –  or to monitor the effectiveness of treatment.

Further diagnostic assessment, as and when needed, would be referred to the team of Prof Marcos Leal Brioschi, Medical Director Infraredmed (www.infraredmed.com), President of the Brazilian Thermology Society ABRATERM  and acknowledged leading world specialist in Medical Thermography.
