About the VELscope® VxThe distinctive blue-spectrum light of the VELscope® Vx hand-held device causes the soft tissues of the mouth to naturally fluoresce. Healthy tissues fluoresce in distinct patterns that are visibly disrupted by trauma or disease, such as neoplastic lesions, chemical irritation, side-effects from medication, thermal damage, fungal, viral or bacterial infections. Use of the VELscope® Vx allows a wide variety of oral abnormalities to be discovered, often before they're visible to the unassisted eye. The VELscope® Vx is further intended to be used by oral surgeons as a tool to assist in identifying diseased tissue around a clinically apparent lesion and thus aid in determining the appropriate margin for surgical excision. It is also the only tissue fluorescence device with photo/video documentation capabilities through the viewing mechanism, a key function for referrals and patient records.
