Why not do it yourself?

Do you know enough about fever screening and infrared?

Are you familiar with:


  • The full range of infrared cameras, systems, and ancillary equipment available?
  • The full range of infrared spot meters available?
  • The characteristics and limitations of each type of camera or spot meter?
  • The US FDA 510(k) regarding the use of “Medical Devices”?
  • The recent modifications to the US regulations as a result of the COVID-19 crisis?

Do you have:

  • Certified Level III Infrared Thermographers on staff?
  • Are your entry monitoring personnel, security guards, or receptionists, fully trained?
  • Do you know how to train them?

Convince yourself that you should hire the experts…

Do You Know Where to Look?


See below, a diagram of places on the body where temperatures could be taken to see if fever is present.

You’ve seen all of these used, either on TV or the internet or personally.

Click on the points and see which ones you should rely on, then call us!

Body Test Points

Click a test point and see why it's wrong here.

Body Outline with testing points
Forehead Wrist Axillary Oral

Forehead

WRONG!
Testing the forehead can give inaccurate readings for internal body temperature!

Wrist

WRONG!
Testing the wrist can give inaccurate readings for internal body temperature!

Axillary

WRONG!
Testing the armpit is slow, messy, and invasive.

Oral

WRONG!
Testing in the mouth is slow, messy, and invasive. It also will violate required distancing.

Here’s the right way, the right tool and the right place – the way that the experts at Entry Scan IR will set up for you

IR face with spot for T measurement

The inner corner of the eye (medial canthus) is the correct location. This is the best place to measure a person’s outside temperature to estimate their core temperature.  And a radiographic infrared thermal imager with recording capability is the right equipment.

  • It is a well protected location, so less affected by the environment.
  • It has very high emissivity.
  • As the image shows, it is the warmest spot on the face, and therefore closest to internal temperature.
  • A recording system will confirm that you did the right thing.

Wrong choice of equipment. Errors in technique. Not the way to run an Entry Scan IR program for your facility!

Spot Radiometer / Temperature Gun on Forehead

Really Bad Fever Screening

Forehead fever screening done wrong

The temperature being taken is that of the boy’s hair!

That’s not going to find out if he has a fever.

And to make matters worse, the tester is far less than six feet from the subject.

Infrared Wrist Temperature Check

Really Bad Fever Screening

Fever screening with a wrist measurement

An unknown error sufficient to prevent a valid fever decision is introduced by whether the sleeve was just covering the test area or not.

That’s not going to find out if there is a fever.

As shown, this is being self administered. That’s not safe or practical in an entry screening system. If an entry monitor did it, they’d be far less than six feet away.
