Anyone used Thermography to help in a diagnosis?

There is a "mystery" hind end lameness at the barn. The poor guy has been lame forever and the owners can't really afford to investigate it further. They did x-ray the hocks and stifles. Hocks are done fusing so this isn't the issue.. Stifles looked good. They had the chiro come out a few times and he did have rotated pelvis. The first 2 adjustments showed improvements and the third he got worse than before.

Has anyone used thermography to successfully diagnose injury or lameness? Any input is greatly appreciated!

"It's old technology and not very reliable"... direct quote from a vet who specializes in lameness issues.

This topic was raised due to a test study being done at one of the local barns. A young lady was wanting test subjects hauled in to compare results from thermography versus fluoroscopy. The fluoroscopy is much more accurate.
