Equine Thermography in Practice

Stručný popis

Termografie je v současné době perspektivně se rozvíjející diagnostická zobrazovací metoda používaná u koní. Při této technice jsou diagnostikovány změny v cirkulaci krve, které se projevují termickými změnami na kůži. Toto vydání publikace pojednává o praktickém využití termografie při poškození muskuloskeletálního systému. V úvodu publikace je čtenář seznámen se zásadami a výhodami této progresivní diagnostické metody a její využití v praxi. Tato metoda si získává své místo také ve spojitosti s rehabilitací a fyzioterapií koní. Proto je tato publikace přínosná nejen pro studenty veterinární medicíny, ale i praktické veterinární lékaře, podkováře, chovatele a trenéry koní .

Popis

Evidence-based and yet very practical, Equine Thermography in Practice discusses how to use the tool in the diagnosis of equine musculoskeletal injuries and what the user can expect to see in normal versus injured horses giving guidelines for best practice. The book builds from basics covering the principles of thermography and then its applications in equine veterinary medicine and the role of the technique regarding the equestrian athlete as well as in rehabilitation.

Extensively illustrated and thoroughly referenced, this book is indispensable to novice and experienced practitioners using the technique, including: equine veterinarians and equine physiotherapists and body work practitioners.
