DySIS Advanced Cervical Colposcopy

Back to Gynecological Services

A colposcopy is a procedure whereby your provider looks at your cervix and vagina with a magnifying device called a colposcope. The procedure takes about 10-15 minutes. lt is usually performed as the next step after a patient has an abnormal Pap smear and/or when certain types of human papilloma virus tests indicate a positive result. It allows the clinician to zero in on where the abnormal area is located, allowing for a directed area to biopsy.

How beneficial is the DySIS compared to other colposcope procedures?

Compared to conventional colposcopy, DySIS provides more accurate results and increases earlier detection of cervical cancer. DySIS includes a new technology called Dynamic Spectral Imaging that takes accurate measurements through the course of the examination. The results are summarized in the form of a map, and allows patients to have a more in depth look at what is going on during their colposcopy.

How does the DySIS Colposcope work?

This procedure measures aceto-whitening automatically, unlike other colposcopes. The measurement results in production of a DySIS map that summarizes the effect of the aceto-whitening to aid doctors in making a diagnosis, and determining whether or not further treatment is required.
