A sheathed micro thermoprobe for local temperature measurements in tissue.


A sheathed thermocouple with an outer diameter of 0.18 mm has been constructed. The response time constant is 6 ms. This miniature thermocouple presents possibilities for measuring the temperature in small objects where measurements hav until now been almost impossible. As an example, the temperature distribution in a tumor is recorded. Measurement errors are discussed.
