Tiny Probe Can See Deep inside the Body and Take Body Temperatures

Posted on Updated on

The probe may help researchers find better treatments to prevent drug-induced overheating of the brain, and potentially refine thermal treatment for cancers. With an outer diameter of only 130 microns, the probe is as thin as a single strand of human hair. This means it can be delivered deep inside the body in a minimally invasive way. It also allows us to see and record physiological data in real time that we weren’t able to access before. The miniaturized imaging and sensing probe has been developed to help study drug-induced hyperthermia. Using some drugs such as ecstasy can make certain brain regions overheat and then become damaged.
