VELScope® Oral Cancer Screening

Oral Cancer Screenings and VELScope® VX

Find oral cancer before it finds you! 

What is VELScope VX?

VELScope VX is the most powerful tool available for assisting in the discovery of oral abnormalities. VELScope’s distinctive blue spectrum light causes the soft tissues of the mouth to naturally fluoresce. Healthy tissues fluoresce in distinctive patterns—patterns that are visibly disrupted by trauma or disease. Using VELScope, a wide variety of oral abnormalities can be discovered, often before they’re visible to the unassisted eye.
