    Publication year: 2009Source: British Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, In Press, Corrected Proof, Available online 1 September 2009Waseem, Jerjes , Tahwinder, Upile , Brendan, Conn , Zaid, Hamdoon , Christian S., Betz , ...We compared findings of optical coherence tomography (OCT) with histopathological results of suspicious oral lesions to assess the feasibility of using OCT to identify malignant tissue. Thirty-four oral lesions from 27 patients had swept-source frequency-domain OCT. Four variables were assessed (changes in keratin, epithelial, and sub-epithelial layers, and identification of the basement membrane) and from this we calculated whether or not there were architectural changes. These data were then compared with ...
