Oral cancer screening is the currently the best known guard in the fight against oral disease and oral cancer. The occurrence of mucosal abnormalities and pre-cancerous conditions is on the rise and oral health screening is the best way detect unhealthy tissue and inflammation.
Used in conjunction with the conventional intra- and extra-oral exam, VELscope provides visual information that cannot be acquired in any other way, and helps discover problems that may not be apparent to the naked eye.
VELscope™ technology is non-invasive and integrates four concepts: light, sophisticated filtering, natural tissue fluorophores, human optical and neural physiology, which isolates abnormal fluorescence patterns during the screening process.
- More than 25 million VELscope® Vx oral health examinations have been performed by over 12,000 dental practitioners in 23 countries.
- The technology is also backed by more clinical studies than any other adjunctive device for tissue fluorescence visualization, making the VELscope® Vx a number one choice for oral health screening.
