OScan Device to Detect Oral Cancer

Manu Prakash, PhD, an assistant bioengineering professor at Stanford and his team have developed OScan, an “ultra-low-cost imaging tool for the oral cavity that attaches to any smartphone’s camera.” With the vision of preventing thousands of deaths due to oral cancer in rural areas, Prakash and his team developed the device to detect malignant cancer lesions via high-resolution imaging and fluorescent light. The OScan has already been recognized with an Americas Foundation Wireless Innovation Project award and an mHealth Alliance Award.
