Velscope Vx

The VELscope Vx helps identify oral diseases. The examination is quick, painless and effective. Oral cancer is one of the few cancers whose rate of survival is low, but now with this technological advance, the survival rate is more than 90%.

Your mouth can hide a secret. That’s why we use the VELscope Vx.

Velscope Vx  is a revolutionary tool that helps dentists,hygienists and other professionals with early detection of oral mucosal abnormalities (cáncer or papliloma). Velscope is a patented Cancer Agency in British Columbia in collaboration with MD Anderson Cancer Center.

The system is designed for direct tissue fluorecence visualization. The changes in florescence when abnormalities are present. The Velscope hand-held device emits a safe blue light into the oral cavity which excites the tissue from the surface of the epithelium through to the basement membrane, causing it to fluoresce. The dental profesional will be able to visualize inmediately because of the changes in fluorescence what is healthy or suspicious tissue. When viewed through the Velscope, suspicious oral tissue generally appears as dark, irregular shaped patches, whereas healthy tissue fluoresces green.
