Aimed at equine professionals with a basic understanding of anatomy, this course delivers the fundamental skills and knowledge needed to undertake basic equine thermal imaging scans to quickly identify injuries, tendon stress and lameness.
Please note: course dates are subject to change due to a minimum class number requirement.
ABOUT THIS COURSE
This comprehensive course will teach students how to use thermal imaging to undertake a comprehensive equine scan. Students will study pre-scan procedures, including thermal camera set-up and operation, along with learning how to correctly adjust camera and software settings. During the course, students will practice image analysis and pattern recognition, learning how to identify problem areas that may need further investigation by a vet.

Equine Thermography, otherwise known as equine thermal imaging, is a non-invasive method of measuring heat emissions from the body. Using thermal imaging cameras on horses (or warm-blooded animals) allows for the discovery of abnormal thermal patterns, the identification of potential error sources and the assessment of training performance.
Once thermal images have been captured, trained equine thermal imaging technicians (thermographers) will be able to accurately measure heat emissions from a horse’s body, allowing them to identify problem areas such as:
Incorrect saddle fit
Thermal imaging technicians are also able to monitor injury, recovery and equine performance in general. This makes equine thermography an invaluable tool for trainers, practicing veterinarians and physiotherapists.
