Simple device for the direct visualization of oral-cavity tissue fluorescence.
A robust, field-of-view device that facilitates the direct visualization of oral-cavity fluorescence for the detection of high-risk precancerous and early cancerous lesions and is envisaged as a suitable adjunct for oral cancer screening, biopsy guidance, and margin delineation. Expand
Fluorescence Visualization Detection of Field Alterations in Tumor Margins of Oral Cancer Patients
These data have, for the first time, shown that direct FV can identify subclinical high-risk fields with cancerous and precancerous changes in the operating room setting. Expand

Dysgeusia is a common oral side effect of cancer therapy (radiotherapy, chemotherapy, or combined modality therapy) and often impacts negatively on quality of life and from the current literature, there does not appear to be a predictable way of preventing or treating dysgeusIA. Expand
Direct fluorescence visualization of clinically occult high‐risk oral premalignant disease using a simple hand‐held device
A considerable proportion of oral cancer and precancer is not clinically apparent and could contribute significantly to the late diagnosis and high mortality of oral cancer. A simple method to… Expand
Biopsy and histopathologic diagnosis of oral premalignant and malignant lesions.
The World Health Organization's description of the architectural and cytologic epithelial changes that characterize dysplasia is detailed, and guidelines for following up patients with premalignant and malignant lesions are provided. Expand
Erythema multiforme: a review of epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical features, and treatment.
The epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical features, diagnosis, and treatment of EM are reviewed and management involves controlling the underlying infection or causative agent, symptom control, and adequate hydration. Expand

Several different techniques for root cause analysis are applied to an employee safety event that occurred within the Department of Pathology. Expand
Evaluation of a suspicious oral mucosal lesion.
A systematic approach to the assessment of oral mucosal conditions that are thought likely to be premalignant or an early cancer is described. Expand
Erythema multiforme: a review and contrast from Stevens-Johnson syndrome/toxic epidermal necrolysis.
An overview of the diagnosis and management of Erythema multiforme and Stevens-Johnson syndrome/toxic epidermal necrolysis with emphasis on the differences between them is provided. Expand
Influence of fluorescence on screening decisions for oral mucosal lesions in community dental practices.

A protocol for screening (assess risk, reassess, and refer) is recommended for the screening of abnormal intraoral lesions and integrating FV into a process of assessing and reassessing lesions significantly improved this model. Expand
