Identafi is a small, compact light that has the familiar feel of a dental instrument, which encourages its use and makes it more likely to be integrated into the exam routine. In cases where a lesion was apparent with the un-aided eye, Identafi was rated very good for enhancing its visualization. The ability of Identafi to increase the visibility of indistinct or occult lesions varied among users. During the evaluation period, some users did not find any lesions, while others did. The use of an oral cancer screening aid such as Identafi engages the patient in the process and can increase awareness. The light itself is simple to use and functioned trouble-free. Fifty-seven percent of consultants reported that Identafi was better than their current oral cancer screening method. Fifty-seven percent of consultants would switch to and recommend Identafi.
