Özet

Background. The clinical oral examination (COE) is the criterion standard for the initial detection of oral lesions that harbor dysplasia or oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) at an early stage when they are most treatable. The authors conducted a systematic review to assess the effectiveness of the COE in predicting histologic diagnosis of dysplasia or OSCC.
