Velscope Cancer Screening

Recognized by the World Health Organization in 2009, the award-winning VELscope® Vx is among the world’s most widely used adjunctive devices for the enhanced visualization of oral mucosal abnormalities, such as oral cancer or pre-malignant dysplasia.

 Tissue fluorescence technology utilizes specific wavelengths of blue light combined with proprietary optical filtering to enhance the visualization of oral mucosal abnormalities.

During a VELscope fluorescence screening, unhealthy tissue will typically have an abnormal appearance which stands out against surrounding healthy tissue, decreasing the likelihood that areas of concern will be missed.
