• Expense ~ You will get all the benefits of a helpful, professional service used only when required without the significant financial outlay of expensive technological equipment, lengthy training and its ongoing financial justification for everyday use.
• Training ~ I am a highly trained and experienced Thermographer and follow strict protocols to get the diagnostic images required by setting up an appropriate environment, patient preparation and positioning
• Quality ~ Providing clear images and reports without the Veterinarian's loss of time through organising a full thermal imaging session. Providing quality data for the Veterinarian to make medical diagnosis and/or further investigation.
• Interpretation ~ The protocol used for taking diagnostic infrared images is critical to the resulting images but the images tell us nothing if we can't interpret them. Dr Tracy Turner once said, 'images do not lie but the interpretation may be incorrect'. As well as being able to interpret individual images, I am able to interpret the images using a 'whole body' approach, this can give the veterinarian valuable information about weight bearing and limb use, information he won't get through anyother technique. With thermography helping to clarify the 'where', the vet is more able to achieve the 'what'.
• Report ~ I
will generate a report for the Veterinarian. This is usually done
within 24 hours of scanning and resembles other diagnostic reports the
Veterinarian is accustomed to seeing. The report will guide the
Veterinarian in what areas show abnormalities; this helps the
Veterinarian to decide exactly where to concentrate further efforts.
