New York, NY, April 24, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- A new breakthrough technology sets new oral tissue screening standards, enabling cancerous lesions to be diagnosed that may be undetectable under regular overhead white dental lights.
The new device, VELscope, uses blue excitation light and a specialized filter to help dental professionals screen the oral cavity for cancerous lesions. “The VELscope offers our patients a quick and painless way to decrease the potential devastation from undiagnosed oral cancer,” says Dr. Reid Winick, New York City dentist, researcher, and lecturer.
∙ 30,000 people are diagnosed with oral cancer per year
∙ Mortality rate is over 50% at 5 years
∙ One person every hour dies from oral cancer
If detected early, oral cancer is 90% survivable.
“The VELscope system allows us to see things we’ve previously been unable to see.”
To get more information regarding the VELscope system, contact Dr. Reid Winick at 212-973-9425.
