Identifi, oral cancer detection
The deep, penetrating power of Identafi multiple wavelengths is designed to enhance diagnostic efficacy as an adjunctive tool for early detection. The Identafi system uses the Identafi Multi-Spectral Fluorescence and Reflectance technology to enhance visualization of mucosal abnormalities such as oral cancer or premalignant dysplasia that may not be apparent to the naked eye.
Unlike other fluorescence technologies and dye systems, the Identafi is Multi-Spectral with three distinct color wavelengths, making it easier to distinguish lesion morphology and vasculature.(8,9)
The Henry Schein Dental/American Dental Hygienists' Association "Dream Center" was an innovative experience for all!
