Thermal Imaging

Thermal Imaging is often used in addition to a lameness exam. We have studied and used Thermal Imaging at Marcotte Veterinary Clinic since 2001. This procedure does require a climate controlled environment to decrease artifacts. Thermal Imaging operates off of the basic principal of inflammation having heat pain and increased blood flow. Through proper use of the Thermal Image we are able to accurately localize lameness issues that are often sub-clinical on a standard lameness exam, or multi-focal and confusing. This technology provides a very accurate, efficient, and non-invasive means of lameness diagnostics.
