Engineering Minute – Tiny Temperature Probe

Tiny Temperature Probe

Researchers at University of Adelaide in Australia have developed a small fibre-optic probe that can both see inside a patient's body and take their temperature. The tiny probe is as thin as a human hair allowing it penetrate deep inside the body in a minimally invasive way. Originally developed to study drug-induce hyperthermia, the research team hopes to apply it to many applications including thermal cancer treatment.
