Identafi 3000 is an oral cancer assessment technology that utilizes multiple light wavelengths to detect mucosal abnormalities. The wand-like instrument uses fluorescence to distinguish abnormalities of your tongue and oral tissue. Early detection is key in your proactive approach to healthcare and will enable you to seek the appropriate treatment when needed. Far too many cases of oral cancer go undiagnosed, but with this technology, we can routinely examine for changes in your oral tissue that happen over time.
How It Works: A BioMed practitioner will shine a light in your mouth. The 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.
