VELscope Oral Cancer Screening
Though locating any kind of cancer in its first stages is very important, locating oral cancer early on is typically more difficult. The VELscope system is intended to catch the earliest indications of oral cancer. This is extremely important for two reasons: 1. The success in curing oral cancer has not gotten much better during the past 50 years; 2. Oral cancer stands out as the 6th most widespread form of cancer seen in the US right now.
The VELscope enables Dr. Peck to find oral cancer sooner and a lot easier using advanced technology. The system relies on a powerful blue light to raise the user’s ability to see lesions, cancerous, and precancerous cells generally difficult to spot. The light makes it possible for the user to distinguish between ordinary and unusual cells along with a higher rate of accuracy. The results are documented making use of images and are saved electronically. The system also makes for a more thorough removal of diseased tissue.
