Medical & Veterinary Thermography helps ‘see’ the problems …
Thermography, or Digital Infrared Imaging (DII), uses heat emitted from the body to ‘see’ tissue damage – such as congestion, infection, compression or the effects of nerve damage – it is not used to diagnose, but provides a non-contact means to assist in making client assessments
DII is a sensitive means to assess and identify anomalies – often up to two weeks before clinical symptoms occur – and can be used to help identify the presence, the position and the extent of a problem.
Whether for human or animal clients, it is a useful tool not only to initially assess and help pin-point the exact location of an injury or condition, but also to assist in the administration of DII Image-guided Therapy – where the images are used to more precisely identify areas for treatment. In additional, subsequent imaging can be used to help monitor the progress and effect of treatment over time.
