Fort Worth, TX, April 16, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- DFW Infrared, a member of the United Infrared Network will provide EquineIR™ services to the Fort Worth area. DFW Infrared is an infrared service company based in Fort Worth, US (www.dfwir.net). EquineIR™ is a network of trained infrared thermographers who detect potential health problems and injuries in horses. United Infrared (www.unitedinfrared.com) is the world’s largest network of multi-disciplined infrared thermographers.
DFW Infrared is an infrared service company which has been in business in the area since 2009 and is owned by Keith Dibley. “We provide professional infrared services for a wide variety of clients in the Fort Worth area. Being part of a nationwide network provides our company with a huge resource of expertise in many different applications of infrared thermography, which we provide to our clients,” states Mr. Keith Dibley. “We use state-of-the-art infrared equipment to produce high-quality imaging of horses which are interpreted by Veterinarians,” he concludes.
Before Thermography, Veterinarians could only locate problems using traditional methods such as observation and palpation. Now, using advanced EquineIR™ thermography techniques, abnormalities present stressed tissues even before damage occurs. This methodology has been developed and refined over the past twenty-five years and has been proven to be an effective imaging technique for the following: Pre-Purchase, Hoof Balancing, Saddle Fit, Track Footing, Pre-Race, Joint Inflammation and General Diagnostics. Since horses cannot speak, it has been difficult for caretakers to truly identify hidden or masked conditions. Now with infrared thermal imaging, many of these physiological and anatomical issues are exposed at a much earlier stage and early detection equals early prevention. Anatomical imaging, such as x-rays, cannot detect soft tissue conditions. Physiological imaging such as infrared imaging has the ability to recognize soft tissue conditions and areas that are indicative of anatomical issues.
EquineIR™ has partnered with Integrated Equine Infrared (www.ieinfrared.com), whose management consists of Joanna Robson, DVM, a Veterinarian trained in Equine Thermography, and Michael DeLeonardo, CJF, a world class farrier. Integrated Equine Infrared provides technical direction at the training courses and expert interpretations through the InterpretIR.com Network (www.interpretir.com), which aligns EquineIR™ Certified Technicians with Veterinarians specializing in infrared thermography of horses to create detailed, graphic medical evaluations.
"EquineIR™ is a service whose time has come and for which there is an eager market. EquineIR™ provides horse owners, trainers and Veterinarians with an inexpensive means of determining problems before they become debilitating to the horse,” states Peter Hopkins, says Peter Hopkins. “We are glad to welcome DFW Infrared as our EquineIR™ partner and look forward to working together.”
