Oral cancer awareness & detection camp on 15th – 18nth March 2022 @Waynadu
Oral Cancer Awareness & detection camp” held on 15th to 18th March at Amritha Kripa Hospital, Kalpetta, Wayanad. The Camp was conducted by Amritha Viswa Viidyapeetham and supported by Sascan Meditech Pvt Ltd. The camp ended with a strong note on the importance of Early Detection of Oral Malignancies especially among the communities with habits of tobacco chewing and smoking. The concept of the OralScan device and its role in the precise detection of Oral cancer was the highlight of the event. A total of 63 patients came up for cancer screening and 40 patients did screening using OralScan. Out of 40, the device identified 15 patients for biopsy.
As per the clinician’s analysis, The report was helpful in convincing the patient about the risk factors and also the report generated by the OralScan was helpful in reinforcing visual examination findings. In most of the cases, findings of the oral can and visual examination by clinicians were matching and OralScan could point out the most malignant site for biopsy which was missed out during the clinician’s visual examination.
Thanks to Amritha Viswapetham for this venture and Sascan is glad for this association. Thanks to all clinicians and Team Sascan for making this event a great success.
