VELSCOPE

VELscope

Early Detection 

VELscope is a hand-held device with an adjunctive mucosal examination system that allows Dr. Russell and our hygienists to detect a wide variety of oral diseases, including pre-cancer and cancer, early on. Used in conjunction with the conventional intra-oral and extra-oral head and neck exam, the VELscope facilitates the discovery of mucosal abnormalities before they become visible under ordinary light. It’s the only non-invasive adjunctive device clinically proven to help discover occult oral disease.

How Does the VELscope Work?
The hand piece emits a safe blue light into the oral cavity, which allows Dr. Russell to see any abnormalities by enhancing the contrast between normal and abnormal tissue.

Is the VELscope a Diagnostic Tool?
VELscope is NOT a stand-alone diagnostic test. However, used in conjunction with the standard oral soft tissue exam, VELscope provides visual information that cannot be acquired in any other way.
