Course Information


Advances in optical adjunctive devices for detection and visualisation of oral cancer and mucosal pathology.
The role of the oral health professional is paramount in the early detection of mucosal disease, and there is an increasing demand on practitioners to be aware of changes in the oral cavity and to be able to deal with them accordingly.
This lecture will address new advances in the diagnosis of sinister lesions, and clearly outline strategies to deal with malignant and potentially-malignant lesions based on the latest research and clinical findings. The lecture will cover clinical features of oral cancer and potentially cancerous conditions, and update practitioners on their changing aetiology and management with the use of diagnostic and management algorithms and protocols.
New technologies available for the early detection of sinister pathologies including diffused light illumination, tissue autofluorescence, narrow band imaging and brush biopsy will be highlighted.

Registration: 8.30
Lecture: 9am - 1pm
CPD Hours: 3.5

This hands-on workshop will allow the participant to experience autofluorescence technology first hand under guidance. 
Theoretical information delivered during lectures will be examined in more detail, and participants will undertake clinical examinations on each other. Tips for the successful use of the newest visualisation aid (Bio/Screen™) will also be offered to aid clinicians in recognising mucosal lesions more reliably.
Discussion relating to integration of Bio/Screen™ into clinical practice, communication with patients about the use of the device, and referral pathways will be covered in more detail.

Workshop: 1:30 - 4pm
CPD Hours: 2.5
