BACKGROUND We report the results of a clinical in vivo study to evaluate the potential of fluorescence spectroscopy for differential diagnosis of oral mucosal malignant and potentially malignant lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study involved 26 healthy volunteers and 144 patients enrolled for routine medical examination of the oral cavity at the outpatient department of the Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai. In vivo autofluorescence spectra were recorded using a N2 laser based portable… CONTINUE READING
