Evidence-based and very practical, this book discusses how to use thermography in the diagnosis of equine musculoskeletal injuries. Giving guidelines for best practice, it covers core principles, applications, what the user can expect to see in normal versus injured horses, and the role of the technique for equestrian athletes in rehabilitation.
