Deep Body Intrascrotal Thermometer: Theory and Methodology
The deep body thermometer, which was originally devised by Fox and Solman1,2 in England, is a new device for the measurement of body temperature. At present, the device has been improved upon and is now being evaluated for various clinical applications. In this paper, the principle of the deep body thermometer will be described and the application for the screening of varicocele will be introduced.
