Meditherm vet2000™
Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging System

Brochure - pdf (582KB)

Conventional thermal imaging systems commonly used in industrial applications use complex camera technology. They have to, because they are designed to operate in a wide variety, and often hostile environments where speed is a prerequisite. Unfortunately these requirements come at great cost.

The design of the vet2000™ is based totally on clinical requirements.

It's the only DITI System specifically designed for veterinary applications.

Why pay thousands of extra dollars for speed and expensive optics that actually reduce the sensitivity and specificity of the thermogram?

The vet2000™ offers accurate measurements at half the cost of conventional systems with comparable temperature and spatial resolution. It is simpler, easier-to-use, more durable, and has longer camera calibration intervals. And it delivers the accuracy of the much more expensive systems.

The vet2000™ has two parts, the IR camera and a standard PC or laptop computer, making the system very portable. The system has been designed with ease of use in mind ... there are few controls and the 'WinTes®' software is intuitive and menu driven.

The vet2000's high-resolution display (76,000+ individual temperature readings per thermogram) offers a wide choice of palettes in full colour, isotherm or gray scale. And image manipulation includes isothermal temperature mapping and point-by-point temperature measurement with a cursor or statistical region of interest. The system can measure temperatures ranging from 10° C - 55° C to a sensitivity of 0.01° C and an accuracy of better than 100mk. Focus adjustment covers small areas down to 75 x 75mm.

Enhanced Software combines the power of the P.C. with the clinical capabilities of the vet2000™.

The vet2000™ does more than simply scan and record thermal images. Because the system is PC based, tens of thousands of images can be stored and retrieved for later analysis. The ability to statistically analyze the thermograms at a later date is very important in clinical work. Copies of images can easily be sent (via email, floppy disk, etc.) to the Meditherm interpretation service, or to referring vets or owners.

Veterinary D.I.T.I. is filling the gap in clinical diagnosis ...
  • X ray, Scintigraphy and Ultrasound etc., are tests of anatomy.

  • E.M.G. is a test of motor physiology.

  • D.I.T.I. is unique in its capability to show physiological change and metabolic processes. It has also proven to be a very useful complementary procedure to other diagnostic modalities.

Unlike most diagnostic modalities DITI is non invasive. It is a very accurate and reliable means of graphically mapping and displaying skin surface temperature. With DITI you can diagnose, evaluate, monitor and document a large number of injuries and conditions, including soft tissue injuries and sensory/autonomic nerve fibre dysfunction.

Veterinary DITI can :

  • Offer considerable financial savings by avoiding the need for more expensive investigations.

  • Graphically display the very subjective feeling of pain by objectively displaying the changes in skin surface temperature that accompany pain states.

  • Show a combined effect of the autonomic nervous system and the vascular system, down to capillary dysfunctions. The effects of these changes show as asymmetries in temperature distribution on the surface of the body.

Veterinary D.I.T.I. is a monitor of thermal abnormalities present in a number of diseases and physical injuries. It is used as an aid for diagnosis and prognosis, as well as therapy follow up and rehabilitation monitoring, within clinical fields that include Rheumatology, Neurology, Sports medicine, Oncology, Orthopedics and many others.

Results obtained with Veterinary D.I.T.I. systems are totally objective and show excellent correlation with other diagnostic tests.

The key to the success of the Meditherm vet2000™ is simplicity and control!
