Tissue fluorescence pattern changes are associated with many different types of lesions. While neoplastic lesions are the most serious and life threatening in the spectrum of diseases that affect the oral cavity, many other types of conditions are definitely worthy of the clinician’s attention.
The VELscope® Vx Enhanced Oral Assessment System is a useful adjunctive device to supplement the conventional intra- and extra-oral head and neck exam for the early discovery of oral conditions from neoplastic lesions to reactive (such as inflammation), developmental and congenital abnormalities. It’s simple and quick to use, non-invasive and its high sensitivity to tissue changes allows for a more thorough oral exam. The early discovery of potentially life-threatening conditions helps to ensure that a patient can be quickly referred to a specialist for follow-up and treatment.
