The purpose of this study is to investigate the performance ability of the UltraSightHD™. The instrument will be assessed on characteristics such as focus quality, ability to image the entire cervix, and illumination. The information gathered from this study will provide data that will be used to determine which settings provide the best imaging outcome for the cervix for a simple screening instrument. Further, this information will serve as the foundation in the development of more advanced follow-on imaging devices.
The primary objectives of this study are to:
- Determine if the light source provides sufficient illumination of the cervix.
- Assess focus and overall image quality.
- Assess the functionality and ergonomics of the instrument's design.

Tumors or cancer of the UTERINE CERVIX.
A cytological test finding often from PAP SMEARS that shows abnormal lesions of SQUAMOUS EPITHELIAL CELLS of the CERVIX. It is a diagnostic criterion used in the Bethesda System for UTERINE CERVICAL NEOPLASMS and represents the PAP TEST result that is abnormal. Although squamous intraepithelial lesions test result does not mean UTERINE CERVICAL NEOPLASMS it requires follow-ups (e.g., HPV DNA TESTS; and COLPOSCOPY).
Incompetent UTERINE CERVIX is usually diagnosed in the second trimester of PREGNANCY. It is characterized by passive painless cervical dilation in the absence of UTERINE CONTRACTION; BLEEDING; INFECTION; and sometimes with the amniotic sac (AMNIOTIC MEMBRANE) bulging through the partially dilated cervix. Left untreated, this condition may lead to premature pregnancy loss, such as HABITUAL ABORTION.
Abnormal development of immature squamous EPITHELIAL CELLS of the UTERINE CERVIX, a term used to describe premalignant cytological changes in the cervical EPITHELIUM. These atypical cells do not penetrate the epithelial BASEMENT MEMBRANE.
A parameter usually used in PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY to measure the length of the uterine neck (CERVIX UTERI). Cervical length or its shortening is used to identify and prevent early cervical opening and PRETERM BIRTH.
