Painless technology ensures early detection of oral cancer
Dr. Siegel uses the VELscope and Identafi® screening unit to detect signs of oral cancer, which could be missed by other methods. The screening unit is used in the early detection of various types of pre-cancerous conditions.
The detection is made by shining a series of special white, blue fluorescent and amber lights inside the mouth to detect unusual and abnormal tissue growth or lesions. The Identafi® screening unit includes the ability to read metabolic and physiologic differences in diseased and healthy tissue in the human body, thus alerting the doctor to potentially dangerous conditions.
Screenings are done with painless light and take just minutes to complete.
