VELscope Oral Cancer Screening

Mercer Island Dentist, Dr. Shiotsu use the VELscope oral cancer screening equipment to make sure patient's mouths are healthy.Traditional oral mucosal examination tools rely on reflected light to visualize the oral cavity. VELscope® Vx uses tissue fluorescence rather than reflectance. 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 may reveal information about cellular, structural, and/or metabolic activity changes that are often directly related to disease processes occurring inside the tissue.

The VELscope Vx system is a powerful device for the enhanced visualization of mucosal abnormalities such as oral cancer and premalignant dysplasia. Unlike other adjunctive devices used by dentists, the VELscope Vx system does not require any dyes or prolonged testing procedures. In fact, VELscope Vx examinations can be performed in the dentist's office during routine hygiene exams (and under normal lighting conditions) in about two minutes.

Features & Benefits
•  Helps you see things which may be hard to visualize otherwise
•  Clinically proven for the enhanced visualization of mucosal abnormalities
•  A very important tool in the fight against oral cancer
