When it comes to oral cancer detection, it's what you can't see that is most troubling. The VELscope Vx is the latest generation of fluorescence-based detection devices. It provides enhanced vision when it comes to detecting abnormal mucosal areas that might not be visible to the naked eye.
In addition to the detection of oral cancer and pre-cancerous lesions, the VELscope Vx also aided in the discovery of mucosal abnormalities such as:
Viral, fungal and bacterial infections
Inflammation from a variety of causes including lichen planus and other lichenoid reactions
Traumatic lesions and areas of local trauma
Salivary gland tumors
