Dr. Ralph Green, DDS, MBA on the VELscope Vx ~
“The way the VELScope works, is that there is a blue light that is shined into the patients mouth and reflects off the mouth’s tissue, when that reflection comes back into the eyepiece, there are a number of filters which filter out different waive lengths.”...”the tissue can then be discerned as to what is normal or abnormal tissue. Normal tissue gives off a fluorescence it naturally metabolizes, abnormal tissue does not give off fluorescence.
