Sync Thermology***New Stress Fracture Research*** This week the team started a new research trial that will monitor a cohort of 20, 2yo flat racehorses over one year. We will be imaging the thoracic limbs for signs of early stress fractures (along with other injuries/ conditions) and correlating with routine veterinary assessment and radiography.
Significant structural change must occur before a radiographic diagnosis can be made, meaning that mild disease and early stress injury may go unnoticed (Dyson, 2003). It has been proposed that infrared thermography could potentially be a useful tool in the early detection and monitoring of bone injuries (Michelotto, Rocha and Michelotto, 2016; Turlo, Cywinska and Frisbie, 2019). Studies have shown that thermography has the potential to detect early-stage pathology (Turner et al., 2001; Soroko et al., 2014) and provide pathophysiological information by recording body surface temperature patterns that may indicate areas of increased inflammation (Soroko and Howell, 2018). We look forward to collecting data this year and working with some fantastic trainers.
The project comes at crucial time for racing as the horse welfare board release their five year strategy plan which commits to a lifetime of responsibility, measuring quality of life and wellbeing from birth to death and making use of unprecedented data to minimise injury and manage safety. #equineathlete #animalwelfare #earlydetection ...

Thanks to his help my understanding of neurology has improved and my rehabilitation skills become more effective.Today’s #MeettheTeam star is Dr Michal Mol MRCVS DVM GPCert (Neuro) GPCert (DI) AAS
Dr Mol is a veterinary surgeon in Neurology and Neurosurgery at Wear Referrals.
Michal qualified in Poland as a veterinary surgeon and, before working in private practice, he was a junior clinical training scholar in anaesthesia at the Royal Veterinary College.
After attaining his surgical residency, he earned the title of specialist in veterinary surgery in Poland.
Michal was previously head vet at a busy practice in Tottenham, London. He completed the General Practitioner Certificate in Neurology course and, after passing the examinations, gained the GPCert (Neuro) qualification.
To broaden his knowledge of advanced imaging modalities, Michal has obtained the Certificate in Diagnostic Imaging GPCert (DI). While living in the United States, he also qualified from the College of Staten Island, part of the City University of New York and obtained an additional degree in Business Management.
