New Thermometer

A new thermometer designed to take people's temperature from their foreheads is said to be more accurate than other thermometers -- as well as more comfortable to use. Noah Adams talks with Dr. David Greenes, a pediatrician at Children's Hospital in Boston, where the temporal artery thermometer has been tested. The Exergen company will be placing the device on the market later this year.
