Our office now utilizes Identafi, a revolutionary hand-held device for oral cancer screening. The detection is made through the processing of optical fluorescence and reflectance in certain body tissues. The Identafi core technologies are based on high-speed, high-resolution capabilities from its patented optical processing technology and includes the ability to identify metabolic and physiologic differences in diseased and healthy tissue in the human body.. Suspicious regions do not fluoresce and appear dark. The procedure takes only a few minutes and is painless, non-invasive, and there are no rinses or stains required.
