VELscope Cancer Screening
"The VELscope is the most powerful tool available for assisting in the discovery of oral abnormalities. The 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 the VELscope, a wide variety of oral abnormalities can be discovered — often before they're visible to the unassisted eye."1
"Discovering soft tissue abnormalities is particularly important in the fight against oral cancer. Because the VELscope assists in early detection, cancer can be caught before it has time to spread, potentially saving lives through less invasive, more effective treatment."1
The VELscope helps Drs. Dean & Tara Kois find a wide variety of soft-tissue abnormalities, allowing them to provide an advanced level of patient care and early diagnosis.
The VELscope is:
- safe and non invasive
- free from unpleasant rinses or stains
- two-five minutes for the entire exam
