Sascan Meditech Private Limited


OralScan is the first multimodal image capturing device that uses multispectral imaging technology at its core for non-invasive and real-time screening of oral cancer and biopsy guidance. The proprietary software developed to operate OralScan is intuitive, so even health workers can be trained to handle the instrument, gather patient data, and share the screening report with clinicians.

Product Summary

OralScan is an intraoral camera that can be used for screening and early detection of oral cancer with the help of a cloud-based machine learning algorithm. It is a multispectral imaging hand-held device for simultaneous recording of oxygenated haemoglobin absorption in the diffusely reflected light and tissue fluorescence. The device consists of a sub-miniature monochrome camera featuring a 5MP CMOS sensor, connected to the USB port of a Tablet or Laptop and controlled through proprietary software. Multiple light-emitting diodes (LEDs) illuminate the tissue, and the fluorescence and diffuse reflectance images are captured synchronously. The captured images are processed, pseudo colour mapped (PCM), and displayed on a tablet in real-time.


"Almost 89% of oral cancers in India arise from oral potentially malignant lesions of the oral cavity. The non-invasive imaging system will help clinicians like us in deciding where and when to take a biopsy from”

Dr. Anita Balan, MDS

Principal, Government Dental College (GDC), Thiruvananthapuram

"In one of our patients who was provisionally diagnosed with an ulcer, histopathological examination following guided biopsy with OralScan diagnosed the lesion, which shows the promising potential of the device in identifying lesions noninvasively"

Dr. Sanjay C J, MDS

Department Of Oral Medicine, JSS Dental College & Hospital, Mysuru

“If a white lesion is seen, people are taking biopsy from wrong places and cannot identify the right place. This device will guide you to which site is malignant or not. OralScan is going to create a big change in the future"

Dr. Radhamadhab Sahu, MS

Consultant – ENT & Skull Base Surgery, IMS And SUM Hospital, Bhubaneswar 751003, Orissa.
