the VELscope system is the first adjunctive device cleared by the FDA, Health Canada and the World Health Organization to help clinicians detect cancerous and precancerous lesions, as well as other lesions that might not be apparent to the naked eye. The VELscope is also cleared to help surgeons determine the appropriate surgical margin when excision is indicated.
The VELscope® Vx system is used as an adjunctive device for the early detection of viral, fungal and bacterial infections, inflammation from a variety of causes, cancer and pre-cancer, as well as various other oral conditions.
The VELscope® Vx Oral Assessment System is easy to use, portable and provides bright clear mucosal visualization. The system is used to conduct more oral tissue examinations than any other adjunctive device.
