Kissing Spine - Equine Thermography - Horse thermal imaging used to detect Kissing Spine on a horse

A 5 year old mare presented with extreme rearing vice under saddle. Query whether due to over exuberance and attitude or physiological condition. Referred by Lambourn-based practice.
Following two weeks of rest, Thermal Imaging of the dorsal area showed significant hot spots remained around spinal processes, combined with warm nerve root signatures (intersecting horizontal lines overlying branches of the spinal cord). X-rays of the area confirmed Kissing Spine.
