Trimira™ Offers Online Library of Oral Cancer Images


Trimira, manufacturer of the Identifi 3000 oral cancer screening device has now placed a library of clinical images online. The idea, of course, is to help in the identification of lesions that the clinician may come across. I also suggest the online clinical library of oral pathology images available with a subscription to Lexi-Comp online.

Oral cancer incidence is growing; up over 11% in 2007 in the U.S.

Here is the info from the Trimira press release:

HOUSTON, TX: July 15, 2009 Trimira™ LLC, manufacturers of the Identafi 3000™ Oral Cancer Screening Device, have developed the Trimira Clinical Image Library, a comprehensive online catalog of clinical photographs taken by leading scientists and researchers. The images show a diverse array of lesions in various locations in the oral cavity. Access to the library is free and available at www.trimira.net. A demo version can be accessed by anyone; the full library is available only to registered Trimira customers.

Photographs in the Trimira Clinical Image Library were taken under the three proprietary multispectral lights produced by the Identafi 3000, providing optimal visualization of the lesions. Images are categorized by location in the mouth, type of dysplasia, and appearance under each light wavelength. Trimira plans to increase the number and diversity of photographs in the coming months.


The Trimira Identafi 3000 is a small, cordless, affordable handheld device that helps clinicians effectively detect early cancers not visible to the naked eye. The device uses a three-wavelength optical fluorescence and reflectance technology patented by Trimira LLC of Houston. The Identafi 3000 was developed in collaboration with scientists at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Rice University, and British Columbia Cancer Research Center, and is now available through dealers nationwide. Trimira LLC is a subsidiary of Remicalm LLC, a privately held medical device and optical imaging company.
