VELscope Oral Cancer Screening
Together with the VELacope oral cancer screening system, our doctors and hygienists can identify suspicious areas well before they are visible to the human eye. Oral cancer presents itself as red, white, or white and red patches. Nevertheless, when these patches are seen by the naked eye, it ordinarily indicates the cancer is in an advanced stage. VELscope allows us to detect possible oral cancer in its earliest stage, when oral cancer is sometimes curable.

The system utilizes a powerful blue light to enhance our capability to notice lesions, cancerous, and also precancerous cells too small to very easily identify. The light allows us to distinguish between normal and unusual cells along with a higher rate of exactness. The final results are documented with photos and they can be saved digitally.
