"We measured the temperature with each of these two thermometers on children and compared the reading to the rectal temperature, which is generally considered the standard. Essentially we found that by every measure that we used, the temporal artery thermometer was more accurate than the tympanic." ~ David Greenes, M.D., Boston Children's Hospital and Harvard Medical School: National Public Radio interview
