I have found thermography a useful aid in the diagnosis of lameness and back problems in horses, particularly in horses with a dislike of needles making them difficult to nerve block. There are a number of individuals offering thermography services locally but Sync Thermology is my choice because they offer a reliable and professional service with detailed and comprehensive reports issued by experienced interpreters.
Client TestimonialsWhat some of our clients say about us and our work...
“Having experience in reading all types of veterinary images- Nuclear scintigraphy, MRI, X-ray, Ultrasound and now thermography, I feel that thermography is one of the most challenging to interpret. Unlike the other imaging modalities you have to remember you are looking at physiology. The images are a map of the nervous system and cardiovascular system function rather than anatomy so they are easily mis-interpreted by the untrained eye. You wouldn’t take your radiographs or bone scans to an untrained person for interpretation, and it amazes that people do this with thermography and expect to get results! When properly used I think thermography is an exciting tool that we can use not only to locate injury, but to detect underlying problems before they develop into serious structural damage.”
Miranda is a total pleasure to deal with. She is both delightful and professional and she had an extraordinarily calming influence on an otherwise fidgety event horse. She produced her report on time and her follow-up support has been extremely helpful. The information that I have received from the SyncThermology scans has been very informative and insightful and has helped to produce some clarity and to inform our decision making. I am very grateful and highly recommend this service and Miranda.
“Thermal images should be interpreted by expert veterinarians who have been subjected to extensive, peer-reviewed training. The fact that this technology can be purchased by a technician without any prior training or qualification makes it open to abuse. Untrained technicians who perform studies and misinterpret images can give a poor representation of what is a very useful tool in veterinary science. Moreover, there is a spectrum of technology available on the market, much of which is not of a clinical standard, and as such is unsuitable for diagnostic work-up. It is important to know therefore, that your thermographer is using state of the art equipment, and that the images will be interpreted by a qualified scientist. SyncThermology provide this service as standard”
"The Veterinary DITI service that SyncThermology provides has been incredibly useful in the monitoring of our top horses to help to detect potential long and short term problems. It is great to have a baseline and then we screen regularly to compare against previous scans.”
