Oral Margin Spectroscopy Detection Using Optical Spectroscopy
The goal of this clinical research study is to evaluate an imaging technology that may help clinicians see how far an area of pre-cancerous or cancerous tissue extends in the mouth.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Oral Tumor Margin Detection Using Optical Spectroscopy|
- Feasibility of using optical imaging and spectroscopy to assist in margin detection for tumor resection in the oral cavity. [ Time Frame: 3 Years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Biospecimen Retention: Samples With DNA
Tissue removal and study biopsies to be done so that researchers can better compare the appearance and diagnosis at these sites to the images that were taken.
|Study Start Date:||February 2007|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||February 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
MDM + FastEEM4
Multispectral digital microscope (MDM) + FastEEM4 Systems
Device: FastEEM4 System
The FastEEM4 probe is moved toward the edge of the lesion(s) until it measures what appears to be normal mouth tissue.Device: Multispectral Digital Microscope
The MDM instrument will take pictures of abnormal-appearing and normal-appearing areas in the mouth.
