Bottom Line: Biopsy detected CIN 2+ in 39 (4.2%) women.Swede scores obtained by nurses using the Gynocular could offer an accurate cervical diagnostic approach in low resource settings.ISRCTN53264564.

Receiver operating characteristic curves for predicting a positive biopsy result for CIN 2+ (CIN 2, CIN 3 and invasive cervical cancer) by a stationary colposcope and Swede scores of 1–10 for nurses and 4–10 for doctors (as the doctor’s Swede score decided whether a biopsy was necessary).

Mentions: There were no significant differences between the Swede scores of the nurses and the doctors in predicting a positive biopsy result (CIN2+) for both the Gynocular (figure 4) and the colposcope (figure 5).
