VELscope Oral Cancer Screening
Using the VELacope oral cancer screening system, our doctors and hygienists can find suspect areas before they are visible to the naked eye. Oral cancer appears as white, red, or red and white patches. Nevertheless, if these patches are seen by the naked eye, this typically suggests the cancer is already in an advanced stage. VELscope permits us to locate possible oral cancer in its initial phase, when oral cancer is often treatable.
Screening is completed in a minute or two by using a small hand-held devise, it is a quite non-invasive procedure that may save your life. The system utilizes a powerful blue light to raise our ability to view lesions, cancerous, and also precancerous cells way too small to easily identify. The light permits us to distinguish between standard and abnormal cells having a greater rate of exactness. Final results are documented by using pictures and can be saved electronically. VELscope also provides for better elimination of all diseased tissue.
