Thermographic Imaging of the Superficial Temperature in Racing Greyhounds before and after the Race

Table 1

Averages ± SD as well as minimum (min) and maximum (max) superficial temperatures obtained from the thermographic images. Measurement points (MPs) for the left and right leg: (1) musculus gastrocnemius, (2) tendo calcaneus, (3) musculus biceps femoris portio caudalis, and (4) musculus gracilis. values are for differences before and after the race for each measurement point and distance estimated from the primary statistical models.
