Walnut Hill OBGYN Now Offering the Latest Colposcopy technology

Walnut Hill OBGYN is now offering the latest technology in colposcopy exams. The DYSIS Colposcopy produces high-resolution digital images of the cervix with an adjunctive map that can help detect abnormalities more accurately.

How a Colposcopy Works

Typically, a colposcopy is performed after your routine pap smear results come back abnormal. A colposcopy examines the cervix with a magnifying device to look for potential abnormalities or whitened areas. Generally, physicians look to take small biopsies of these areas and send them for a pathologic exam.

What is Aceto-Whitening?

Aceto-whitening is the blanching of skin or mucous membranes after the application of a 3- 5% acetic acid (vinegar) solution. The whitened areas are a sign of increased cellular proteins and increased nuclear density.

How the DYSIS Map Technology Works

The DYSIS map is generated by a proprietary technology that measures the aceto-whitening reaction and summarizes it in the form of an intuitive map. The DYSIS map is overlaid on the high-quality image of the cervix to help with the identification of the most relevant biopsy sites.

Magnified blue or green filter options in the colposcope camera allow physicians to have better visuals, as well as a high-contrast mode for identification of abnormal blood vessels. All images are stored on a patient database and are documented for future exams and treatment.
