In 1998, it was discovered that the termination point of the superior ophthalmic vein under the skin adjacent to the canthus of the eye provided an accurate and non-invasively means to measure brain temperature (14). This location is called the Brain Temperature Tunnel (BTT) . Methods: After obtaining IRB approval, non-invasive adhesive thermal sensors were placed at the BTT site near the canthus of the eye of 10 volunteers. Results: ME: The mean increase in BTT (°C) was 0.21ᵒ C and mean increase in HR was 35.5%. Google Ngram Viewer. What is a misplaced modifier. ©t 2000, 1999, 1998, 1998 Margaret L.
