What is the VELscope?
The VELscope technology, uses a safe blue light to illuminate abnormalities in the mouth. The VELscope is an extremely effective aid for discovering and defining the extent of a wide range of abnormalities in your mouth, including oral cancer. Importantly, VELscope helps you discover problems before they can be seen under ordinary white-light conditions.
Protection and Prevention
In addition to the detection of oral cancer and pre-cancerous lesions, the VELscope Vx also allows one to find:
- Viral, fungal and bacterial infections
- Tissue Inflammation
- Traumatic lesions and areas of local trauma
The VELscope works through tissue fluorescence – an optical phenomenon that causes abnormal tissue to appear a different color.
