Paper Abstract

This paper evaluates the effectiveness of thermal scanner when it is being used for mass blind screening of potential fever subjects. Both regression and ROC curve are used to analyze the data collected from the SARS hospital in Singapore and conclusive results are drawn from them. These results will be vital in determining two very important information: the best and yet practical region on the face to take readings and optimal pre-set threshold temperature for the thermal imager.
