The World’s #1 Adjunctive Examination Device

 

  • Traditional oral mucosal examination relies on reflected light to visualize the oral cavity.

 

  • The VELscope allows the direct visualization of tissue fluorescence which complements and expands upon the view obtained by reflected light.

 

  • Using these different visualization methods together provides an enhanced examination that decreases the likelihood of overlooking possibly serious pathology.

Natural tissue fluorescence is caused by “fluorophores” that, when excited by light of an appropriate wavelength (e.g. blue) will emit their own light at a longer wavelength (e.g. green). The resulting fluorescence reveals information about cellular, structural, and/or metabolic activity changes that can be directly related to disease processes occurring inside the tissue.

 

The VELscope system is a powerful, fluorescence-based device that enhances the visualization of oral mucosal abnormalities such as oral cancer and premalignant dysplasia. Unlike other adjunctive devices used by dentists, the VELscope system does not require any dyes or prolonged testing procedures. In fact, VELscope examinations can be performed in the dentist’s office during routine hygiene exams.

VELscope Advantages

Fits in with your work flow and complements your intra and extraoral head and neck examination with minimal set-up and only nominal time added to the overall appointment.

Offers a visualization modality this is sensitive to tissue changes, helping you see things which may be hard to visualize otherwise.

Provides visual information that is bright and readily observable in the dental operatory.

Allows for straightforward photo documentation – photography solution is easy to integrate and bright tissue response allows you to easily acquire digital images to be used for patient records or sent to referral partners.

Clinically proven for the enhanced visualization of mucosal abnormalities, and for use by specialists in helping establish lesion margins for surgical excision.

Proven practice builder.

Increases practice revenue.

Indications for Use

VELscope® is intended to be used by a dentist or health-care provider as an adjunct to traditional oral examination by incandescent light to enhance the visualization of oral mucosal abnormalities that may not be apparent or visible to the unassisted eye. VELscope® is further intended to be used by an oral surgeon to help identify diseased tissue around a clinically apparent lesion and thus aid in determining the appropriate margin for surgical excision.
