How Does Braun ThermoScan work

The Braun ThermoScan(R) IRT 4520 measures the infrared heat generated by the eardrum and surrounding tissue. Since the eardrum shares blood supply with the temperature control center in the brain, the ear accurately reflects the core body temperature. To avoid gross temperature differences, the sensor itself is brought to a temperature close to that of the human body. When the Braun ThermoScan is placed in the ear, it continuously monitors the infrared radiation. The measurement will be finished and the result is displayed, when an accurate reading can be assured.
