Infrared Thermography Seminars at Post University

Once again this year, Dr. Donna Harper will be at
Post University in Waterbury, Connecticut, for two Seminars on Infrared Thermography – this continues the series she began in June 2004. 

The seminars will be offered in two 1-week sections.  The first week (June 13-17), Basic Principles of Infrared Thermography, will cover introductory information and training for those just starting out in this field.  The second week (June19-23), Clinical Applications of Infrared Thermographic Principles, will be intensive and provide in-depth information for those who have already had some experience using the equipment and wish to increase their skill level in both camera operation and application.  The seminars are open to veterinarians, veterinarian-sponsored technicians, and other professionals or anyone who has already attended seminars offered anywhere in the USA who would like to get further help improving their ‘case study’ skills.
