Pilot Study for Speculum Free Cervical Cancer Screening

2019-10-03 07:54:50 | BioPortfolio


The objective of the work described in this protocol is to determine the optical signatures of cervical dysplasia using optical technologies.


This project is to assess if the introducer, "calla", can be used in place of a speculum during a routine Pap smear. For the patient arm, the introducer will be used in conjunction with standard of care procedures. The healthy volunteer arm will include taking the introducer home for a week to determine if each person can find their cervix without the help of a physician. As well as completing surveys on ease of use and demographics related to their medial history.
