Abstract

The human eyes are not made to detect disease, however visual perception is the most common screening method for early cancer detection. With optimal illumination and observation configuration there is significant improvement of optical contrast between normal and pre-cancerous tissue in the oral cavity, both for reflected or fluorescent light.
