Summary note:
This Spotlight provides a comprehensive review of recent developments in the field of optical oral cancer diagnosis in three parts. The first section introduces oral cancer incidence, etiology, and existing screening methods, ending with a short note on the limitations of current techniques and the need for alternative approaches. The second part discusses applications of different spectroscopic methods in oral cancer diagnosis. A general overview of different techniques along with detailed literature review is included. The book concludes with a comparative note about different spectroscopic approaches and future demands from a clinical perspective.
