Clinical Application

The Inspektor Pro QLF Camera system has been approved by the FDA and is available for dental professionals and research and educational institutes in several countries. The device was designed to be used in any clinical environment. The basic version brings QLF images and analysis to the dental practice. The research version supports the use of QLF for fundamental research and clinical trials.

QLF-D is a recent addition to the available QLF systems and is making the measurement of early caries even simpler. QLF-D works using the same principles as other QLF systems. However, the QLF-D system utilizes images taken using a high resolution camera, rather than the QLF handpiece used in the earlier Inspektor Pro system.

Some examples of the use of the handpiece to acquire images of the various surfaces:
