From my buddy Dhru Shah at Dentinal Tubules – June 21, 2011 – FIRST DAY OF SUMMER
A team of scientists from the University of Liverpool has won an
award for developing a device that can identify early tooth decay and
plaque before it is visible to the eye. The innovation,
iDENTifi, comprises a clinical digital camera which incorporates
qualitative light induced fluorescence (QLF) technology to take images
of the mouth using blue light and special filters which can show up
cavities and plaque.
The images can then be transferred using wireless technology to a
computer, laptop, iPad or smart phone for immediate assessment and
evaluation by a dental care professional.
