Can the SpotOn™ Zero-Heat-Flux-Thermometry Sensor Accurately Measure Core Temperature in Children?

The present study aims to assess the accuracy of the SpotOn™ Zero-heat-flux-thermometry sensor in measuring core temperature in the paediatric population in the perioperative period.

Microwave Radiometry Thermometry for the Diagnosis of Critical Limb Ischemia in Diabetic Patients

Diagnosis of vascular involvement in diabetic foot disease remains challenging. Differential diagnosis between pure neuropathic or neuro-ischemic diabetic foot requires a combination of cl...

Comparison of Thermometry in Canada for Pediatrics

Compare and assess the accuracy and reliability of the InstaTemp MD® device to techniques presently in use for measuring temperature in infants and children in a Canadian clinical setting...

Dermal Thermometry and Self-Care of High Risk Diabetic Patients

Foot ulcers remain the most common reason for hospital admission among veterans with diabetes. Healing and preventing these wounds should be a high priority for clinicians treating these h...

Single Arm Study Using the Symphony -- MRI Guided Focused Ultrasound System for the Treatment of Leiomyomas

Single arm, first-in human feasibility study using the Symphony - MRI guided focused ultrasound system for the treatment of leiomyomas. The study is expected to accrue over 12 months. This...

A New Precision Spectroscopy Based Method for Boltzmann Constant Determination and Primary Thermometry.

We propose a new independent thermometry method, line strength ratio thermometry (LRT), based on optical spectroscopy measurement of linestrength intensity ratio R between pairs of molecular transitio...

808 nm-triggered optical thermometry based on up-conversion luminescence of Nd/Yb/Er doped MInO (M = Ca, Sr and Ba) phosphors.

Optical thermometry based on up-conversion (UC) fluorescent intensity ratio (FIR) with 808 nm excitation is preferable in water-rich environments, and investigation of the ambiguous intrinsic influenc...

Fluorescent nanodiamonds for luminescent thermometry in the biological transparency window.

Fluorescent nanodiamonds (FNDs) have attracted recent interest for biological applications owing to their biocompatibility and photostability (absence of photoblinking and bleaching). For optical ther...

A thermometry software tool for monitoring laser-induced interstitial thermotherapy.

The purpose of this study was to develop a thermometry software tool for temperature monitoring during laser-induced interstitial thermotherapy (LITT). C++ programming language and several libraries i...

Temperature-dependent persistent luminescence of SrAlO:Eu, Dy, Tb: a strategy of optical thermometry avoiding real-time excitation.

A new strategy of optical thermometry is realized by long persistent luminescence phosphor SrAlO:Eu, Dy, Tb (SAEDT). Under different temperatures, SAEDT shows bright afterglow emissions after cessatio...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Measurement of the temperature of a material, or of the body or an organ by various temperature sensing devices which measure changes in properties of the material that vary with temperature, such as ELASTICITY; MAGNETIC FIELDS; or LUMINESCENCE.
