Abstract

Our results show good agreement between standard esophageal measurements of core temperature and core temperature measured using a modified MRI-core probe during general anesthesia in a general surgical pediatric population. The ability to accurately assess core temperature in the MRI suite may safely allow longer scan times and therefore reduce repeat anesthetic exposure, improve patient safety, and enhance the quality of care in children.
