The E8-XT: a handheld thermal imaging System at a great value!
The E8-XT is a useful tool for imaging in veterinary medicine, thanks to its 76,800 (320 x 240) pixel infrared detector and expanded, -20°C to 550°C (-4°F to 1022°F) temperature range. FLIR MSX® image enhancement provides extraordinary thermal imaging detail, while the built-in Wi-Fi allows users to quickly connect with the FLIR Tools® Mobile app for sharing images and sending reports easily from any location.
Thermal Imaging is highly sensitive and can be an early indicator of subtle circulatory changes in soft tissue.
With a thermal imaging exam it is possible to reveal inflammatory reactions in joints and tendons from 2 – 6 weeks prior to the clinical appearance of lameness.
It can identify abnormalities when tissues are in a state of stress, rather than once there is anatomical disruption and injury.
The most common uses of thermal imaging in veterinary medicine are for detecting conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system, including Saddle Fit analysis, as well as neurological, dental, and infectious disease.
