  • How To Use Thermography For the Difficult To Diagnose Horse
  • Dr. Joanna Robson of Napa CA explains the very "Star Tecky" thermographic camera.

Using infrared technology, the thermographic camera can detect hidden inflammation by measuring minute temperature changes on a horse up to .02 of a degree.
