New technologies to aid colposcopy

Pierre Martin Hirsch looks at some new diagnostic aids for colposcopy and provides an interesting account of what they are and how they work

Colposcopy is very useful as a means to direct biopsies and treatment but the sensitivity and specificity of colposcopy even in well trained colposocpy limits its usefullness as a stand alone diagnostic tool. The developments of new diagnostic aids is really interesting but it can be hard to keep track of what each one does. This lecture provides a comprehensive look at these techniques and is definitely worth a view.
