NICE has assessed 2 adjunctive colposcopy technologies (the DYSIS colposcope with DYSISmap and the ZedScan I) to help the NHS decide whether to use these products.
A colposcopy is an examination that uses a colposcope to give a magnified view of the cervix, to check for abnormalities. Used alongside standard colposcopy, the DYSIS colposcope with DYSISmap and the ZedScan I highlight abnormal areas of the cervix. Healthcare professionals can then offer further tests and treatment if needed.
NICE has said that the DYSIS colposcope with DYSISmap can be used in the NHS, although further research is recommended.
Although the ZedScan I shows promise, NICE has said that further research is needed before it can be used in the NHS.
