Learn more about our Velscope!

Here we have Michelle performing oral cancer screening using Velscope. Basically, Velscope allows dentists to detect dysplastic cells or cells that are just beginning to make their transformation into pre-cancerous cells through abnormal fluorescence patterns. This technology has a reputation for being very accurate as well. Velscope's fluorescent methods for detecting oral cancer in oral potentially malignant disorders was 76.9% and 65.4%. Specifically for distinguishing high-risk from low-risk lesions in oral potentially malignant disorders was 50.0% and 82.1%, respectively.
