Laser tongue diagnostic

laser spectroscopy aimed at the tongue diagnoses health opportunities

There is a mini spectrometer that you can aim at things to find out the chemicals in them. I think putting this in a phone has been published.

What if a laser pen like thing could be aimed at the tongue near toothbrushing time to do spectroscopy? Could it find any health opportunities like high cholesterol or trace amounts of mis-metabolites? Possibly.

If it is too much $ perhaps they could simply wave it at your mouth when you go to the dentist.

I suppose one improved version of this could be part of an electric toothbrush with optical fiber bristles that got really near the tongue.

"laser tongue diagnostic" is not at the first page of a search engine.
