Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Smears from premalignant and malignant lesions may contain large proportions of normal cells together with atypical cells; that could reduce the sensitivity of cytologic diagnosis. The present study assessed the performance of the Seescan TV image analysis system (TVIAS) in distinguishing between normal, premalignant and malignant oral smears. The sensitivity of Seescan TVIAS was tested using both white and monochromatic light.
