Identafi: Our Oral Cancer Screening Technology
Did you know that an early diagnosis of oral cancer doubles your odds of survival? Help change the odds with the Identafi Oral Mucosal Visual Enhancement System.
The Identafi system uses the 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.
- White Light illuminates the tissue for conventional examination.
- Violet Light (405 nm) enhances the fluorescence of normal tissue; tissue with loss of fluorescence should be examined further.
- Green-Amber Light is a narrow band reflectance that can help differentiate between normal and abnormal vasculature.
Oral cancer screenings are so important because oral cancer is not something that can be detected by the naked eye. Identafi’s multi-spectral lights are what detects any abnormalities in your mouth such as oral cancer.
