Digital Thermal Imaging

Digital Thermal Imaging 

Digital Thermal Imaging is an extremely valuable tool that can actually allow you to see pain and inflammation in patients. Pets can't tell us where it hurts or if they hurt, but by using this technology we can greatly improve our discovery of pain and injuries. This new technology is non invasive, non destructive, and helps diagnose inflammation and lack of circulation and its exact location in the body. 

 -DTI will localize unsuspected areas that might not have been uncovered by physical exam

 -Find a faster path to diagnose or localize pathology with more patient data

 -Provide an objective tool that owner's can comprehend in order to pursue further diagnostics or treatment

 -Diagnose stoic cats or pets that are harder to localize pain

  

We are proud to offer the latest technology at Middletown Animal Hospital.  We are the only veterinary clinic in Lake, Mendocino, Napa & Sonoma Counties to do so.  The benefits of Digital Thermal Imaging in Veterinary Medicine include:

-A visual physiological map of the area being examined 

-Provides a precise area for examination and a visual of inflammation or lack of circulation.  Eliminates guesswork

-Mapping of the thermal gradients through thermography has the ability to visually illustrate neural irritation or dysfunction

-Quick, easy, and can lead to quicker diagnoses with improved patient visual

Digital Thermal Images do not depict temperature but measure the radiant energy from the target tissue.  These cameras read and illuminate this energy and are both non invasive and non destructive as an aid to patient diagnosis and improved treatment plan.

Combining Digital Thermal Imaging with Laser Therapy allows:

-Monitoring before and after laser treatments by providing a visual picture of inflammation pre and post to quantify treatment results.

-Detection of body areas of inflammation or lack of circulation which require further diagnosis or evaluation.

-An immediate picture identification of secondary areas of inflammation to utilize laser treatments to best resolve the primary issue.

-A “whole body” approach to laser treatment.

-Visual evaluation of laser therapy progress on subsequent visits.

-Discovery of areas of potential musculoskeletal stress in an animal before they manifest as disease or loss of mobility.  These areas can then receive early intervention with laser therapy to avoid more serious injury.
