A new method of monitoring temperature non-invasively within an MRI scanner is introduced. This method is based on Raman backscattering, with the sensor consisting of a long length of thin optical fibre which can be arranged in any desired geometry. The major advantage over existing techniques is that a wide area of surface temperatures can be monitored simultaneously. Preliminary feasibility of the approach is shown here for localized and global temperature measurements.
