Evaluation of the accuracy in detecting cervical lesions by nurses versus doctors using a stationary colposcope and Gynocular in a low-resource setting.

Nessa A, Roy JS, Chowdhury MA, Khanam Q, Afroz R, Wistrand C, Thuresson M, Thorsell M, Shemer I, Wikström Shemer EA - BMJ Open (2014)

Bottom Line: The ability to predict CIN 2+ (CIN 2, CIN 3 and invasive cervical cancer) using Swede scores was evaluated using receiver-operating characteristic curves.Biopsy detected CIN 2+ in 39 (4.2%) women.ISRCTN53264564.

BMJOPEN2014005313F1: The Gynocular with a tripod mounting clip that screws into any standard tripod.

Mentions: The Gynocular (Gynius AB, Stockholm, Sweden) is a high resolution monocular colposcope with similar specifications to stationary colposcopes.1415 The Gynocular is a small, hand-held, battery-driven, measuring 50×33×166 mm with 300 mm focal distance, and three magnifications: 5×, 8× and 12×.1415 It has a tripod mounting clip that screws into any standard tripod, allowing the medical professional to perform colposcopy in a hands-free mode for ease of biopsy (figure 1). The Gynocular has high-intensity light-emitting diodes for warm white illumination, a green filter light, and is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. It is a product approved by the Swedish National Drug Authority as a non-invasive medical diagnostic class I tool, CE marked and Food and Drug Administration approved.
