The new cordless VELscope Vx Enhanced Oral Assessment system is the proven, convenient, affordable way to help detect oral cancer and other oral diseases. Use of the VELscope® Vx can enhance the discovery process for an array of oral mucosal abnormalities, often before they become apparent to the unassisted eye. The device’s distinctive blue-spectrum light causes the soft tissues of the mouth to naturally fluoresce. Healthy tissues appear in distinct patterns that are visibly disrupted by trauma or disease, such as neoplastic lesions, chemical irritation, side effects from medication, thermal damage, as well as fungal, viral or bacterial infections. Today, VELscope® Vx systems are used to perform more comprehensive oral examinations than any other adjunctive device. To date, more than 13,000 VELscope® Vx systems are in use globally, and dental practitioners have performed more than 25 million exams with the technology.
