Visilite is old technology and will only discover surface lesions.

Check out the Velscope which studies show may discover abnormal tissue, down at the basement membrane, before it becomes visible to the eye.

velscope missed a severe dysplasia right beneath the epithelial surface. 1 false negative in a lousy 44 patient trial...a waste of money.

vplus with tblue has proven to detect lesions down to the basement membrane....mild dyslpasia begins there...several studies show vizilite is the only technology to detect these type of lesions in health patients. and with Tblue, false positives reduced by reduces unnecessary biopsies.
