Fluorescence diagnostics: A forthcoming non invasive screening adjunct in oral cancer
Author(s): Ruchika Khanna
Oral cancer is amongst the common malignancies worldwide, hence early detection and treatment is essential. Detection of oral cancer at an early stage improves the results of treatment. One of the upcoming technologies is the use of non-invasive imaging technique to capture the molecular changes in order to improve the detection capability of early stage disease. This review highlights the Fluorescence technology and its use in early detection of malignant oral tumours.
