Identafi Oral Cancer Detection

ORAL CANCER STOPS HERE:

The startling statistics:  Oral cancer is not a disease but is more deadly than Hodgkin’s lymphoma, cervical, thyroid and skin (malignant melanoma) and kills one person every hour of every day.

 IDENTAFI 3000  uses a revolutionary technology which employs 3 unique wavelengths of light that can detect oral cancer with more efficacy than the naked eye.  Early detection means early treatment and a cure rate of 90 percent.  Undetected changes in the cells of your mouth, tongue, throat and tonsils are made visible through the use of Identifi’s special light waves, which illuminate areas of change that may signal the early beginnings of Oral Cancer.

The test is simple, painless and takes less than three minutes. The entire oral cavity and surrounding structures are examined using the bright white light in conjunction with a conventional oral and tactile exam.  The instrument is then switched to  ”Fluorescent Violet Light” to identify any areas of abnormal tissue growth which may benign, precancerous or cancerous. 

Finally, the instrument is switched to “Green-Amber Reflectance Light to examine the blood vessels around any lesions.  Lesions with abnormal growth are more likely to be malignant.

Speak with the doctor if you would like to be screened for Oral Cancer today using Identifi 3000.  A small fee may be charged to cover the cost of the procedure.
