Technology

Our multispectral imaging camera is configured to detect changes in diffuse reflectance, absorption and fluorescence of tissues associated with biochemical and morphological changes during the early stages of cancer development.

Edge

We use a high resolution monochrome camera for accurate and real-time mapping of oxygenated hemoglobin absorption in tissue. This helps to locate the most malignant site for biopsy, thereby avoiding under diagnosis and repeated biopsies.

Application

Our patented multimodal technology can detect most forms of squamous cell carcinoma, which constitute one-third of all cancers. The device can be adapted for endoscopy and tissue margin delineation during cancer surgery.

Impact

Our technology is suited for opportunistic screening of potentially malignant tissues of the oral cavity and cervix at higher accuracy and lower per-patient cost. This will encourage large scale adoption and save millions of lives every year.

WATCH VIDEO
OralScan is an optical imaging multimodal device for the early detection of (pre-) cancerous lesions of the oral cavity. The device operates on the principle of diffuse reflectance and tissue autofluorescence wherein light undergoes multiple absorptions and scattering events before emerging from the tissue surface. Tumour tissues undergo biochemical and morphological changes during the process of carcinogenesis, which is reflected in the optical signals emanating from the tissue.

Why Cloud Computing?

Screening and early detection of precancerous lesions using white light are subjective, and ensuing biopsies are painful and time-consuming, with low diagnostic accuracy, high costs, and a long wait period. Our mission is to make cancer screening so accurate, painless, and affordable that anyone can walk into a clinic for a checkup and get the results in less than 5 minutes.

In order to achieve this, we use proprietary software to capture multispectral images of tissue fluorescence and diffuse reflectance on illumination with specific wavelengths of light matching the absorption of protoporphyrin IX and oxygenated hemoglobin in tissue. The captured monochrome images are processed to quantitatively assess the extent and nature of tissue abnormality in real-time with the help of a cloud-based machine learning algorithm developed by correlation of image data with histopathological results of a biopsy.
