After an abnormal Pap smear or a positive HPV test, your physician may recommend performing a colposcopy exam to look for abnormal cells on your cervix. These cells may indicate inflaming or pre-cancerous changes that could develop into cervical cancer if left untreated.
The DYSIS computer-aided colposcopy with cervical mapping quantifies the acetowhitening effect, which is an indication of abnormal cells. This helps your doctor select biopsies to catch abnormal areas early while they are small and easily treatable. It allows you to watch the exam if you choose, and your doctor can store images and video to compare to future exams is needed.
