Trial Information

a Non-invasive Device for the Detection, Diagnosis and Screening of Oral Pathology


Specifically, we will be obtaining optical spectroscopic data using a fiber optic contact
probe that exploits elastic-scattering spectroscopy (ESS) and fluorescence spectroscopy.
Both of these technique have independently shown to provide signatures for the onset of
cancer, with varied success. The purpose of this effort is to combine the two techniques and
develop and understanding of the signatures obtained in both normal and abnormal oral tissue
with simultaneous collection of these optical signatures.
