SFE Used In Dental Applications

Clinician is demonstrating the use of the prototype in the pediatric dental clinic. The researcher can view the monitor for highly detailed images of the suspected carious region using a flexible, sheathed, 1.6-mm-diameter SFE probe with scanned 405-nm laser illumination. The black box under the display monitor remains closed during clinical examinations, but contains the spectroscopic optical biopsy instrumentation.
