What is Veterinary Thermal Imaging?
Veterinary Thermography – Unique Patient Evaluation
Veterinary thermal imaging uses a camera to measure a patient’s body surface temperatures. This veterinary-specific software converts the temperatures into images that help evaluate physiology. Thermal images use colors to represent the body’s surface temperatures of the animal. This provides a physiological map of the patient and allows veterinarians to see the unseen.
Digatherm® makes reading and interpreting thermal images easy. Colors clearly represent and correlate with temperatures on the thermal image. Because of this, clinicians can easily identify areas of increased or decreased temperatures. Thermal imaging for animals helps pinpoint where problems are and knowing where to look further.
How does Digatherm® benefit a veterinary practice?
Veterinary patients cannot talk. Non-invasive thermal imaging cameras for animals provide a physiological picture. This image of the patient speaks for them. Many patients have thermal abnormalities before an owner or clinician notices a change. Thermal images assist diagnosis and treatment early in the disease process. Follow-up images allow for objective monitoring of any therapeutic plan. They also create a roadmap to target treatments.
Clients love these images because it allows them to visualize the issues. The pictures give a clear understanding of the difference between normal and abnormal. Utilizing this tool also promotes compliance with diagnostic and treatment recommendations.
Non-invasive thermal images are simple to obtain. Veterinary staff members easily take the images without patient sedation or restraint. Digatherm® software makes it straightforward for doctors to interpret and share findings, save reports in the patient record, and streamline communications with owners.
“Thermal imaging opened my eyes and made me look. I love using Digatherm® as a clue to finding where they hurt.”
