Vatsalya- Centre for Oral Health is pleased to announce that it is one of the first Dental Centres in India to introduce VELscope, an advanced oral cancer detecting device.
VELscope® Vx, an enhanced oral assessment device is a wireless, handheld scope that uses natural tissue fluorescence to enhance the way dentists visualize oral abnormalities that might not be apparent or even visible to the naked eye. The biggest advantage of the device is the fact that patients can now save themselves of having to go through a series of tests to identify oral cancer. The device can detect the abnormalities at the very early stage & help patients with timely and effective treatment.
Cancer has been a leading cause of concern for medical professionals across the world. Research indicates that 1,45,400 deaths occurred from oral cavity cancer, with smoking being the primary cause. This number can without a doubt be reduced if the cancer is caught and treated at the initial stages.
Recognized by the World Health Organization, the award-winning VELscope® Vx is the world’s most effective device for an enhanced visualization of oral mucosa abnormalities, such as oral cancer. The VELscope®
Vx emits a harmless, bright blue light which is used to inspect the mouth and tongue. The distinctive blue-spectrum light causes the mouth to shine brightly due to the florescence. Healthy tissues fluoresce are visibly disrupted when the tissue undergoes any oral abnormalities, including cancer and pre- cancer.
Dr. Srivats Bharadwaj, Chairman & CEO, Vatsalya- Centre for Oral Health says, “Most cases of oral cancer are detected at the later stages, which reduces the survival chances of the patient. With this device, we can detect oral cancer at a very early stage and initiate the right treatment to ensure speedy recovery. The patient can save himself of having to go through a series of test to identify cancer. It is a major milestone in our attempt to bring preventive oral care to the doorstep of people.”
“It’s also in line with our mission to provide world class technology to people across income groups and improve their standards of living,” adds Dr. Srivats.
