This study aimed to investigate the clinical efficacy of using broadband white light (BWL) to observe morphologic appearance, narrow-band imaging (NBI) to observe intraepithelial microvasculature, and both BWL and NBI for the detection of high-grade dysplasia and carcinoma in oral leukoplakia. Among 317 patients (274 males and 43 females; aged 52.4±10.7 years), the odds ratio (95% confidence interval) for detecting high-grade dysplasia and carcinomatous lesions based on morphologic appearances… CONTINUE READING
