VELscope technology is changing the way oral mucosal examinations take place.

The VELscope handheld device emits a harmless, bright blue light which is used to inspect the mouth and tongue.

The device is sensitive to abnormal tissue changes and the distinctive blue-spectrum light causes the soft tissue of the mouth to naturally fluoresce. Healthy tissues fluoresce in distinct patterns that may be visibly disrupted when tissue undergoes an abnormal change, which can occur in the oral mucosa for a multitude of reasons, such as when associated with dysplasia or oral cancer.
