FOURIE, J. VELscope: shedding light on its ideal application. S. Afr. dent. j. [online]. 2018, vol.73, n.2, pp.71-77. ISSN 0375-1562.

Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is a deadly and disfiguring disease. Despite the fact there are readily identifiable precursor lesions and ample opportunity for detection during dental visits, patients continue to succumb to the disease due to late diagnosis. Adjunctive diagnostic aids have been designed to change the natural history of oral cancer by promoting screening practices and allowing for the early identification of OSCC and precursor lesions.' The VELscope is one such device that is available in South Africa, where it is marketed by Inter-Africa Dental. This article will look at the current evidence for the use of the VELscope in different practice scenarios.
