The device spots microwave emissions from the brain tissue under the skull when the device is kept on the patient's head. It is capable of measuring the temperature of the brain tissue 1.5 centimeters below the skull.

"We are pleased with the tremendous initial response and are proud of the potential impact that knowledge of brain temperature in these challenging neonatal cases may have on the ability to manage hypothermia treatment. We plan to proceed with gathering additional clinical evidence as well as exploring expanded opportunities for clinical application of the thermometry system", Jeff Carr, Chief Operating Officer of MMS said.
