Early diagnosis of oral mucosal lesions has been advocated as a means of improving outcomes of cancer therapy. Improved visualization of mucosal lesions may aid in diagnosis by guiding tissue sampling or referral. This multicenter study reports the effect of chemiluminescent light (ViziLite) upon visualization of mucosal lesions. The chemiluminescent light did not appear to improve visualization of red lesions, but white lesions and lesions that were both red and white showed enhanced brightness and sharpness.
